Greg Oden To Return To Trail Blazers

Jason Quick of The Oregonian tweets that free agent Greg Oden has agreed upon a one-year deal worth $8.9 million that will allow him to return to the Portland Trail Blazers.

The former number one pick of the 2007 NBA draft has not played a game since Dec. 5, 2009 when he fractured his left patella.  The 7-foot center has played 82 NBA games- the equivalent of one season- in his four-year career.

Oden missed last season after undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee.

"The mission has not been accomplished,’’ Bill Duffy Oden’s agent said to the paper. “The Blazers have stood by Greg, and now he is going to stand by them.’’

The Blazers hope for him to return by late January or early February.  In four seasons, Oden has averaged 9.4 points and 7.3 rebounds.
