i'm confused. they say the Spurs need to sign a center, so they may sign Oden if Baynes doesn't come fast enough.
The Spurs don't own his rights and it'd be beyond stupid if the Spurs buy him out to be a free agent and then have to waive/trade Blair to then make room again for Baynes since the Spurs typically leave one roster spot open in case of emergency.
i seriously doubt Oden tries to sign midseason too. it'd be smart for a contender, but Oden can command more money in the offseason if that's his game plan. Spurs didn't announce when Patty Mills was signed, it was reported. the team usually doesn't talk about it until it's official, even if all sides agree.
