CLEVELAND (AP) - A person with knowledge of the situation says the Cleveland Cavaliers are exploring the possibility of signing center Greg Oden, the former No. 1 overall pick whose NBA career has been sabotaged by injuries.
The Cavs are doing their due diligence while looking at Oden, said the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team's interest is contingent upon the center's health.
CBSSports.com first reported the Cavs and Miami Heat were pursuing Oden, who hasn't played since 2009.
Oden has undergone three major knee surgeries. While attending Ohio State's game against Wisconsin on Tuesday night Oden said he hopes to play next season.
The 7-footer was the first player taken in the 2007 draft by Portland. He has averaged 9.2 points and 7.3 rebounds in 82 career games.
