Greg Oden to Mavericks?


Former number one pick and Indiana native Greg Oden may be closer to returning to the NBA.

The former Lawrence North High School and Ohio State star may be looking at the Dallas Mavericks.  

ESPN and are both reporting Oden is giving "legit consideration" to the Mavericks, which are owned by Indiana University alum Mark Cuban.

Persistent injuries have kept Oden off the court since the Portland Trailblazers took him first in the 2007 draft.  He hasn't played in the NBA for almost four years.  

Oden has reportedly been working out in Indianapolis.  He was spotted Wednesday night at the Justin Bieber concert.
