Greg Oden: The Blazers did not extend his contract, but they still can make a 1-year qualifying offer ($8.8 million) when the season ends. Would that be a wise investment? John Canzano thinks so. “The Blazers maintain that they’ll probably make that qualifying offer, as long as Oden’s rehabilitation is progressing — as they say it is. And they’d be wise to do so. But further, they’d be wise to attempt to turn the one-year deal into a multiyear contract, tacking on two or three seasons to Oden’s deal.” Before you scoff at sinking more money into a guy with a terrible injury history … Oden is only 23.
