Sounds like the blazers negotiated 1 year year contract with Oden which means he didn't sign a qualifying offer. If that is correct, does it mean the blazers, if they wanted to, could sign him to an extension before he becomes a free agent? My understand is that wasn't allowed with a qualifying offer.
I'm not saying the blazers should do this, I'm just curious about the rules.
...trying to get to 75 words so this works.
