    I want Greg Oden back. Sign him for like 2 mil (I would pay 5). He is a stellar shot blocker, an excellent rebounder, and once he gets it in the paint, he's gonna dunk it. I know people are unsure because of his injuries, but sign him to like a 10 day contract or something at least and let him play a bit.

    might be good in limited minutes off the bench but I'm still kind of not so sure if he'll be able to stay healthy for 82 games

    Reports say he is. Some kid in the draft worked out with him and said all he did was run and something I can't remember. Seems fit. I would love Oden back.

    If he is willing to work for it I would give him an incentive laden deal. You play this many games you will make this much, make the all-star team and next year you make etc.

    I think if you have to take a risk, this is it. Even people who are upset about Greg Oden, will admit that when he was fit, he was a BEAST. Excellent rebounder, insane shot blocker. I think the needs to work on his offensive game. Maybe Meyers can teach him his soft touch around the rim. I would pay to see that. Meyers teaching Greg Oden.

    I think what he needs is Portland. Somewhere where there aren't many distractions, not many nightclubs or anything. He's sobered up now.

    Remember whenever Oden played Aldridge didn't play nearly as good? I know this was in the past when Aldridge was the 3rd wheel, but I feel like Greg Oden would take away the block from Lamarcus where he is most effective. I like what cmeese says about the contract. Im not sure if you can have to many of the bonuses though. I think Nic Batum has an extra 5 million patch in his contract if he makes all nba 1st team or something.

    Twice burned is not something we need.  What do we know about Greg's knees now?  I think the only way to sign Greg would be an incentive type contract that ratchets up with games played and time on court increases and then additions based on accomplishments.

    A healthy GO in a Blazer uni is arguably the best center in the league.  Pair that with Dame and LA?  Intriguing, if nothing else.  I'm old school, and as such have been a fan of Memphis and what ex Blazer Hollins is cooking'...the inside-out game and a stout defense anchored by a fearless shot blocker.   That is playoff basketball...championship material.   I too agree with an incentive laden contract, as cmeese has suggested.  Would add that it's a distinct possibility that Greg feels he has some unfinished biz in Ptown, the franchise using their #1 on him.  Sign GO if he checks out.

    @special k...good point, however would add there's a new sheriff in town at PG now. Oden (again, when healthy) is the type of 5 you HAVE to pair with Aldridge, as he is everything LaMarcus is not. The two haven't had an opportunity to develop chemistry to this point. GO compliments LA's game PERFECTLY.

    As impactful as GO was while on the floor, 15 minutes may be all that's needed for 12 cats and a coaching staff to get fitted for the finger jewelry.  Just having Greg on the floor was a deterent against dribble penetration...something that absolutely killed this team this season.  Oden was a man in the middle...A MAN, not a boy wanting to become a man.

    True that meese, but I think those needs can and will be addressed in this offseason. Filling those holes and adding Oden, financially speaking, can be done. Personally, though the sample size to this point remains small, I believe the right pieces are FINALLY in place OFF the court with this organization, to make some noise. This is a reason for excitement, but be patient. As Olshey has said on numberous occassions, he is not interested in a one hit wonder (Dallas). He is building for "SUSTAINABLE SUCCESS". Think about this last draft. He flat ran away with it, no question. Got arguably the best player and undeniably the best PG at 6, and later drafted the best 5 in the draft (yet to be determined), following that up with Barton in the second round...a player that can score and rebound at the 2 and whose big weakness is easily correctible with PT, that being decision making. Thank you Neil. Thank you. Continued success.

    There is no way in hell that Meyers Leonard is the best 5 in the 2012 draft. He will never be better than Drummond unless Drummond pulls a Greg Oden and can't play because injuries. Anthony Davis played around 45% minutes last year at the Center position as well. While we were never in position to take Davis the teams failure to move up to take Drummond is tragic. Barton has some potential but he won't be playoff ready for a while if ever. 


    Olshey is also the same man who gave us a garbage bench, claiming he never expected them to be that good. Then once we were competitive he did nothing to bolster our bench which was an obvious issue. Barbosa, Anderson and Martin were all still avail in October and even later than that and yet we did nothing. He basically had to be gift wrapped Maynor. 


    I have a feeling that this summer will end up an #epicfail

    Try to remain positive meese.  That losing streak to close things out wasn't an accident...just my opinion.  Adding talent, like a Barbosa, would have netted this team what exactly?  You, more than anyone on our boards, has been calling for the best draft position(s) possible...right?

    I am not naive enough to believe that the losing streak was no accident just watching Matthews and Batum sit and the seeing LA go off for 30 and 20 then sit pretty much the entire 4th in a winnable game shows as much. 


    The problem is 11 million in cap room needed to sign a starting C back up PF back up SF, back up SG and a back up PG.

    Why not? Getting Oden back for 15 a game wouldn't be that bad if he can do as he did in his 1st season. Close to 2 blocks a game and anything close to 5 boards. He would provide a good presence and he can read the game quite well.

    Greg wants a fresh start. Portland wants a fresh start. And thank you, Siccolo, for comparing this to B Roy. Any draft prospect is going to be pretty impressed with what GO can do on the court... even a 75% GO. A kid that has no idea what NBA games look/feel like has no idea what a game-ready center looks like either.


    I wish we could've had a healthy Oden in Portland. But I stopped clinging to that hope when the team made it clear that it was going in a new direction. Yes to a productive defensive center. NO to that center being Greg Oden.

    That was Greg Oden of old. If he is open to coming back to Portland I think we could get him. He was going through some stuff with the drinking and all, but he's done with it. He is really fit now, and I think he will fit perfectly with us. He is exactly what we need.

    Roy dropped 30 something in Jammal Crawfords camp and everyone said that he is back to The Natural. He played 5 GAMES THIS SEASON!

    I would take the risk because Im always gonna be a Oden fan and I love Risks but It wouldnt surprise me if the dude barely plays.


    Maybe you can have a contract set up so If he injured we can waive him like Roys. But then you would have to give him a huge amount for the 1st year

    sign oden to 3 year and 1 million per year. if he plays like he was supoosed to be when we drafted him, we got a steal. if we get allen too, we are going deep in the playoff since our last champ season. imagine this, damian going for a 3, he make it, allen is guarding harden, he force a turnover, he get the balls and pass it to aldridge and he slams it home. rockets is going down the court, lin is going for a easy lay up, no ways batum came out of nowhere, he blocks the shot, damian rebounds, running down the court passing a ally-oop and oden came out of nowhere and he dunks it on omer asik. blazers won, they won the western champ against rockets. 100-97. after the game. mike rice talk about how much the blazers came back from last season, and how oden becames all-star with aldridge and lillard. that would be home sweet home

    roy/wesley

    Oden was definitely the best pick coming out of high school and arguably ahead of Durant in the 2007 draft. But the draft is art not science and we really needed a dominant center at the time. If we can get Oden for a short term low-risk deal. Like 2 years and 3mil then we have a steal. He says he is fit again and until he plays we won't know how true that is.


    If his drinking days are behind him and he can give us 50% of the player we drafted for 50 games a season then I think we can make a run at the playoffs. His game will suit the half court style of the playoffs. Slower pace and more time for him to anchor our defense. I say get GO and give him a shot!!
