It's not often that a 25-year-old seven-footer with world-beating potential comes on the market, and it's even rarer for the two suitors in the mix to both be defending conference champions. But that's exactly the situation with Greg Oden, who will work out for teams this week, and according to one report, it's down to Miami and San Antonio.
Oden hasn't played in an NBA game since 2009, a couple of microfracture surgeries ago. But he officially announced his plans for a comeback in January, and the Heat immediately showed interest. He's been working out nonstop, with one observer calling his progress "unbelievable." Now it's time to prove it.
