Notes On Greg Oden

August 3 2013 at 8:03pm CST By Michael Pina

In wake of his decision to sign with the Heat yesterday, here are a few more notes to pass along regarding Greg Oden

  • Sam Amico from FoxSportsOhio.com writes that very few teams in the league had any actual interest in Oden's services, quoting a general manager who said, "If we got him, great…But if not, we sure weren’t gonna cry about it. I don’t think anyone is looking at him as anything more than an emergency backup. That’s nice to have, but it’s not like it’s impossible to find.”
  • USAToday offers several reasons why Miami's decision to sign Oden was a good one that'll pay off dividends in the future.
  • ESPN's play-by-play announcer Mark Jones tweets that after Miami, the Spurs and Mavericks were Oden's second and third choices.
