Ziller: Nicolas Batum, Greg Oden Are Top-20 Free Agents In 2012

38
Tom Ziller of SBNation.com NBA does a fantastic job previewing the 2012 free agency class. Portland Trail Blazers forward Nicolas Batum and center Greg Oden are listed among the top-20 players. ------------------------------ 10. Nicolas Batum (restricted): Batum is a darling of Francophiles, Blazers fans and statheads, so of course he's brilliant and should probably be No. 1 on this list. 20. Greg Oden: What do you even say about Greg Oden as a basketball entity now? By July, there's a strong chance he will have played one full season of NBA basketball over five seasons of NBA basketball. But he's still Greg Oden. If he holds an open work-out as a free agent on July 1, every team would show up, checkbook in hand, ready to make an offer. It's Greg Oden! ------------------------------ Blazers guard Raymond Felton (No. 26) and center Marcus Camby (No. 43) also appear on the list. Former Blazers Rudy Fernandez (No. 49) and Jerryd Bayless (No. 56) do too. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
