With the news of renouncing Neal, I still hope the FO can get something for him. As much as I'd love to have Ariza, if we dont make it happen we still have the rook D Thomas

But if I had to choose, I'd probably go with Oden because we can use another big who can be used as an intimidator now defensively and brought along slowly offensively. Whereas, Miller can be signed by another team (hopefully not OKC) and won't be returning to Miami for any repeat performances.
I'd go with Oden hands down. No question about it! Miller can go anywhere he wants, but he wont be getting the wide open shots he was getting with MIA anywhere else. Now if Neal were to go to a rival like OKC or MIA then I can see a reason to worry. If that were to happen I woud NOT cry because he's as good as a shooter as bad as he is at defending. Thats not to make a joke of him, but I've been harping on his defense or lack thereof, since his first season with us.

I gotta wonder if TD has extended an invite to Oden to his summer workout sessions, let's say as a 'peace offering' and hopefully as a 'welcome to the Spurs' gesture. Hibbert has already stated in a tweet that he intends to join TD again for their workouts.
Interesting way to look at it. I'm hopeful that at least Timmay reached out to ODEN. If he took the initiative, I think Oden will be here for training camp.
