05:57 PM ET 06.21 | The Miami Heat are less than one day removed from winning their second straight championship but could have their first roster adjustment lined up. Greg Oden is interested in joining the back-to-back champions and the Heat are interested in adding Oden into their frontcourt. Oden hasn't played in the NBA since December 5, 2009 but has been rehabbing in Ohio as he prepares to make a comeback. The San Antonio Spurs, Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers and Charlotte Bobcats are also considered possible destinations for Oden.

Best situation for Oden. Little to no pressure. They're coming off a 3rd Finals appearance without a true big man, they're not looking for a starter, and they don't even him to be ready to play right away. They carried Earl Barron and Derrick Pittman for long stretches as their 14th-15th man in the past. So they're obviously willing to wait to see how things develop.

If nothing else, he could thrive in the Miami **** industry.
