Spurs on Oden's Finalist List
Greg Oden looking at four teams this summer

Greg Oden’s agent Mike Conley Sr. (yes, the father of the Memphis point guard) told Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida that the center is still looking at four teams to sign with this summer — Miami, San Antonio, Cleveland and Charlotte. The smart money is still on Cleveland, but one should never rule out the temptations of Miami (and the sales job Pat Riley can do).

uh isn't this old news? :shrug

I thought he said no to SA?

Evidently, Conley Sr is the mouthpiece in this relationship and is probably name dropping the Spurs to stir the pot. When it comes down to a decision, Oden will probably just flip a coin and it will have Miami on both sides.

Yeah, you have to figure he's headed to Miami. But it sure would be nice to have him here and in the rotation with Duncan and splitter, and then to take over when Duncan retires. But I have to stop myself from getting excited about a guy who not only is not with this team, but is not with any team, and has not played a full NBA season ever.

As has been hashed, rehashed and then flipped'n kicked some more: Oden to SA for a reasonable salary is interesting. Oden is NEVER going to be the rock star on a team, but with the right coach, roster and rehab, he might play a mean tambourine.

I wish I could be that fly on the wall when Conley Sr starts salary negoitations with prospective NBA clubs before the teams run Oden through some basketball drills and a physical. I'm just wondering whether Oden will have to play with modified crutches or a souped up wheel chair.

He is pretty tall:

I once walked up to him and took his picture as he was walking from San Diego Comic-Con. He is really tall. Now I have to find that pic.
