The Trial Blazers have gone ahead and offered the former No. 1 pick Greg Oden a whopping $8.8 million dollar qualifying offer if he stays in Portland. This offer looks good when you take into consideration that the fact that the 7 footer is often injured, also the Blazers are in a position to match any offer which is made to him. Basketball scores

Oden who is 23 hanst played this past season after some microfacture surgery which had to be performed on his left knee. He also missed his rookie season in 2007-08 after some microfaacture surgery to his right knee. He also broke his left knee cap two seasons ago. NFL betting lines

Owing to his many injuries the former Ohio State star has just played 82 games over two seasons with an average of 9.4 points and something around 7.3 rebounds.

The president for the Trial Blazers Larry Miller said in his statement yesterday “We’ve stood behind Greg Oden every day since he became a Trail Blazer and that continues with today’s announcement,” “Despite the setbacks he’s experienced, he continues to be resilient in working tirelessly on his rehabilitation. We’re all very encouraged with not only his progress but with his commitment and determination to return to the basketball court.”

The Blazers just had until this Thursday night to make a good offer prior to him being dismissed by his team last month, the former general manager rich Cho had also hinted that the Blazers would opt to keep Oden. Cho has been replaced by Chad Buchanan who is the Blazers’ director of college scouting. If Oden does not get an offer from any other team he will then become a unrestricted free agent for the season of 2012-13. Baseball betting lines

Back in the 2009-10 season Oden had been averaging around 11.7 points with 8.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks and was playing with great authority something which has eluded him presently. He then broke his right kneecap back in December of that season. It looked like he would return in 2010’s season but it was announced that he required microfracture surgery to his right knee.

After he was selected by the Blazers as the top pick in 2007, he was chosen over Kevin Durant and was hailed as being the future of the franchise. But his rookie season was cut short when he had to get microfracture surgery.
