07:27 PM ET 02.19 | The Greg Oden Free Agency Chronicles continues as we get a new scoop that the former number one pick is taking his time. As Oden announced he wanted to return to the league, teams such as the Miami Heat developed interest and quickly contacted him in hopes to sign the big man so he can play this season. Later on, he narrowed down his choices to a selected few. According to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, Oden says he isn't rushing back and wants to take his time. However, it's smart for Oden to take his time, no need to rush back under any circumstance. If Oden works on his game better and proves that he can play anywhere from 10-20 minutes on any given night, more teams are likely to sign the big guy. Just like Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, Oden doesn't want to come back until he is 110 percent or healthy enough to play. Patience is a virtue and in Oden's case, interested teams will need a lot of patience.
