In light of Chris Wilcox’s injury troubles and Jason Collins … being Jason Collins, Celtics fans have been clamoring for the C’s to acquire a backup center who can rebound and defend. It appears that Danny Ainge agrees; as the Celtics are reportedly keeping an eye on former number one draft pick Greg Oden:
Greg Oden, the No. 1 pick in 2007 who hasn’t played in an NBA game since 2009 due to a litany of knee injuries, is aiming for a comeback. Part of Oden’s plan is to sign with a team in the next month and get into a training and conditioning program with an eye toward returning to the floor next season. The Celtics are among the teams monitoring Oden’s progress, and sources tell CBSSports.com’s Jeff Goodman that the Spurs and Cavaliers have expressed interest, too.
