Mavs Enter The Fray, but Oden May Wait to Make Decision

New, comments

The Mavericks are in on Greg Oden after passing on Andrew Bynum. But a decision from Oden may not come quickly.

After Andrew Bynum elected to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, news quickly came that the Mavericks had contacted Greg Oden's camp to formally enter the race:

Oden has played a total of 82 games in his career since being drafted number 1 overall in 2007. His career unfortunately plagued by a series of knee injuries and surgeries, Oden sat out the 2012-13 season to focus on rehab and getting back to form for 2013-14.

Early reports are that he may take his time before making a decision, however:

With the Mavericks also talking to Samuel Dalembert this week, and in desperate need of center help, will they be able to afford to wait on a decision from Oden?

More as this develops.
