Free agent Greg Oden is being pursued by the New Orleans Pelicans.

Free agent Greg Oden is being pursued by the New Orleans Pelicans. Reports say the Pelicans could offer Oden a two-year deal worth more than $3 million.

Miami and San Antonio are among the teams taking a long look at Oden, but so is New Orleans. And while the franchise certainly isn't as glamorous, it may be the one to come up with a multi-year offer that might make it tempting for Oden to consider the Pelicans.

Oden has long been pegged to join the Miami HEAT, however higher dollar offers have Oden and his camp considering alternate situations.

Again, the sales pitch for Oden going with New Orleans involves the fact that he'd be able to work his way back to the court slowly, with minimal expectations, and out of the national media spotlight.
