Is Greg Oden the best available center?

By riverman
There's a lot of potential center talk and surprisingly some Greg Oden talk on the Blazers sites these days. Is a healthy, sober Greg Oden the best available free agent center that's not restricted? Would he be welcome back in the Rose Garden or would he want to come here? Read somewhere he was working out and running the court. When healthy he's as close to a real center, paint protector as we've had in a long while? Would it be worth taking a look at him? I tend to think not but that could be just my Blazer knee fear kicking in. What do you guys think?

  1. There's an article on yardbarker.com that makes a case for him

  2. He if healthy would be the best available to Portland center, he is still behind Howard, Bynum and Jefferson overall.

  3. He very well could be the best available center but picking him up would be bad for both Greg and the Blazers. I hope Greg lands somewhere like Phoenix that has a strong history of rehabbing good players. It would be nice to see the kid still make a career for himself if that is what he wants to do.
