It's been another disappointing season for Greg Oden, who underwent knee surgery that sidelined him for the year, then was waived by the Blazers yesterday to clear a roster spot. However, Oden's agent Mike Conley Sr. tells the Associated Press (link via ESPN.com) that his client is committed to playing basketball again.
When Portland waived Oden, his agents Conley and Bill Duffy released a statement saying that "the first priority is Greg's health" and that there's no timeline for his return to the hardwood. According to Conley, while Oden initially contemplated ending his career, he's fully focused on rehab now. Conley says the former first overall pick is rehabbing at home in Indianapolis and would have interest in joining the Pacers once he gets healthy.
When Oden clears waivers this weekend, he'll be an unrestricted free agent.
