Greg Oden: The Blazers have until Monday to sign 2007 No. 1 pick Greg Oden to a contract extension, but that’s very unlikely to happen. Even when Oden returns from injury – maybe December – he’ll have to fight for minutes with Marcus Camby and Joel Przybilla. With Oden and Przybilla injured, Portland is using Fabricio Oberto as its backup center. But he’s 35 and Camby is 36. Oden clearly has the most upside of that quartet, but his injury issues and recent off-the-court history don’t help is cause. Still, he only turns 23 in January. The Blazers can match any offer that Oden receives in July, though. [Indy Star]
