The Boston Celtics met with free-agent center Greg Oden on Saturday, according to president of basketball operations Danny Ainge.
The meeting comes as injury-riddled Oden intensifies his search for a team with the goal of returning to the NBA next season. Whispers spread this morning that Oden had been spotted at the team's practice facility and Ainge by Browse to Save">confirmed the exploratory meeting.
The Celtics were not previously believed to be a strong candidate for Oden's services, but Saturday's meeting suggests otherwise.
To bad he couldn't play this season. I'm thrilled just for the fact that I love OSU, and we may have a front court with two of the best bigs to come out of OSU in the past decade. Of course both have red flags with a history of injuries.
