Potential off-season move that could pay off

I'm talking about Greg Oden. Now the number one criticism to the post is going to be that he is injury prone and a bust. But hey so has Andris Biedrins as of lately. If you give Greg the proper time to recover he would be a whole hell lot better to watch than Andris. First off watching his free throws wont be unbearable to watch. He is almost a %70 free throw shooter for his career compared to %52 which was %11 this year by Biedrins. Second he actually has some muscle on his frame and won't be the softest guy on the court. He is a defensive presence in the paint. He is tall, big and most importantly athletic. He has the ability to block shots while looking elegant and audacious instead of a lanky bumbling fumbling wuss. Third with Bogut swallowing the majority of the minutes next season it will give Oden the ability to get back into the game after his time off. This transition will also help with his durability. It will allow him to play but not put too much wear and tear on his grandpa knees and hopefully the will be strong enough to last for extended periods at a time.

Since he just got cut and hasn't played all too much since he entered the league 4 years ago his contract will be much less than the 18 mil we owe Andris over the next 2 years not to mention the extra incentives in his contract. Now it is some what of a risk but with ever risk can come a big reward.
