Weekly Greg Oden Update

Jonathan Daniel

This past Sunday, rumors swirled around the Pelicans being one of the favorites to land the services of Greg Oden:

Free agent center Greg Oden appears most intrigued by Pelicans & Heat, source told Y! Sports. Decision still expected this week.

Although no formal offers have been presented as of yet, it is believed Miami is only interested in offering a minimum one-year contract, while Oden is seeking a richer commitment of 2 years. As most are aware, there have been whispers New Orleans is the most likely team to meet his demands.

Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a while longer as Oden is now expected to announce his decision sometime this weekend:

Center Greg Oden probably won’t decide among the Heat and five other teams until this weekend, agent Mike Conley Sr. said Tuesday, adding that formal offers haven’t been made yet. He said the Heat has seen "all it needs to see" from a medical standpoint and that Oden won’t necessarily take the highest offer. But asked if a Heat offer at the $1 million minimum would be good enough, Conley said he was not sure.

Will Oden choose the harsher lights of Miami beach, or will he opt to take the wiser route: a less-pressured environment, a more familiar coach and a much bigger payday? What say you?
