06:39 PM ET 01.11 | Greg Oden made it clear earlier this season that he would not allow his chronic knee issues put an early stop to his NBA career. He has recently been linked with the Miami Heat, but it now seems that the Dallas Mavericks might want to take a gamble on the 24-year-old 7-footer. Oden has recently been working his way back into shape, recovering from microfracture surgery, and wants to have a shot at some NBA action next season. According to an ESPN report, the Dallas Mavericks have been in touch with Oden's agent about possibly making a multi-year offer to the former No. 1 overall pick. The Mavs are not the only team that are rumored to be interested in making a long-term commitment to a center who has had several microfracture surgeries on his knees. Some teams are even willing to sign Oden this season, in order to allow him to rehab under the supervision of the franchise's medical staff.

Is there anyone the Mav's don't show an interest in?

Even Sam Bowie's career is looking better than Old Man Oden IMO.

Could be worse... Shawn Bradley comes to mind.

Great to see that teams are more than willing to give Oden big money.


I would go to Miami if I was Oden or at least follow Lebron around so he makes it easier for you/less pressure.

Shawn stayed on the court a LOT more than Oden ever will.

Oden is ideally suited and has the talent/experience for the **** industry (along with Mike Tyson).
