Looking at 2011 FA list and I thought maybe the Cavs should go after Oden and also bring in Mike Conley (also a FA in 2011) to reunite these guys. There are other guys on that FA list I would prefer to have, but my hunch is we could actually land this guy and it might even be at a discounted rate if we bring in his buddy Conley.
I know all the negative things about Oden and his injuries, but he is still young and this might be our best chance to land a "superstar." We bring in Conley to lure him in and to make him happy. He seems like a shy guy that would enjoy a smaller market as opposed to the blaring spotlight of NY, LA or even Miami. He also might like being closer to home and being back in the midwest. And he would be somewhat of a "hometown" guy being a buckeye.
Do you think it's a good idea? Could we get him at a decent rate or will there be a bidding war for this guy? Who else on 2011 FA list would you want, and who could we actually have a chance at?
