Greg Oden?

Since the only true Center on this Lakers team is Robert Sacre. Why don't we take a chance at another back up center? Greg Oden is the guy! You can sign him at 1 yr at the veteran minimum. :jam2: :jam2: :jam2:

I realise the shortage we have at centre, but I would rather take a chance on Beasely at SF/PF than a busted player doing a Bynum and growing his afro on the bench. Oden has only two plausible advantages, 1 Fooling near sighted but rich fans into buying seasons tickets when they confuse him for Lebron and 2 Hoping that when his knees explode on the court he takes out some collateral damage and his human shrapnel destroys both Howard and Harden in a magic karma bullet scenario. Take the fork out of him because he is still done.

Not sure if serious, but... I would prefer just about every not retired, semi-healthy bigmen that ever played one minute in the NBA, say Cezary Trybanski, and good luck finding out who that is.

If he were even remotely able to play 15-17 mpg, I would love to bring him in. We need a C who can anchor, badly. Skill wise Oden has exactly what we need. But injuries? It looks doubtful if he will ever play significant minutes ever again in the NBA.
