Published on August 27th, 2015 by Astramskas, David | 1,237 views

The last time we saw footage of 27 year old Greg Oden playing ball it was at a local YMCA against guys twice his age that look twice as young.  I have great news (I guess) we now have new footage and news about the former #1 pick. On Monday, Oden signed a 1 year deal with the Jiangsu Dragons of the Chinese Basketball Association.

Oden has played in a total of 105 games since being drafted in 2007. His last game in the NBA was on April 16th of 2014 with the Miami Heat.
