Greg Oden (213 cm, Ohio State’07) is a free agent once again after being released by the Jiansu Nangang Dragons Nanjing (China-CBA) this 2016. The oft injured big man played 25 games for the Chinese club this 2015-16 season and averaged a double-double with 13.0 ppg and 12.6 rpg. He also added 2 blocks per game as he was his team’s main rim protector.
