Still trying to improve their roster, the Sacramento Kings are expected to meet with free agent Greg Oden later this week – this according to ESPN’s Marc Stein:
Free-agent center Greg Oden will be in Las Vegas this week for face-to-face meetings with officials from the Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans, according to sources with knowledge of Oden’s plans.
The sitdown with Mavericks officials, sources said, is scheduled for later Monday, as Dallas pushes to join the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat at the forefront of the race to resurrect the career of 2007′s No. 1 overall pick.
The former Ohio State product has been working out all Summer, doing his best to get back onto NBA hardwood. Now ‘healthy’ (at least according to reports) Oden wants to find a spot not only where he can get paid, but where he can showcase his talents.
Per Lang Greene:
One of the primary items at the top of Oden’s wish list is a multi-year deal as the center desires stability in his next career stop. The center is also looking for an opportunity to become a regular rotation player next season, per a source.
The Kings don’t have much salary cap room so unless the big man would be willing to take an exception, another roster move would need to take place if the two sides were to agree upon a deal.
