Greg Oden looking to make comeback in BIG3 league
Greg Oden is making a comeback — sort of.
The former No. 1 overall pick, whose career was derailed by injury, has joined the BIG3 draft combine in the hopes of making it in the three-on-three league frequented by many former pros.

Oden is the latest big-name addition to the BIG3 league, which has also been populated by the likes of Chauncey Billups, Allen Iverson, Metta World Peace, and Charles Oakley.
The former Trail Blazer had once said he was done playing, but that was before the three-on-three league had been conceptualized. It would be great if he could play again, even at this level.
