Haynes: Agent Says Greg Oden Didn't Want To Be "Distraction"

35
Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com with some comments from Mike Conley, Sr., agent for former Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden. -------------------------------- It's been quite a while since Oden spoke to members of the media. When Oden was rehabbing at the Trail Blazers' practice facility, he would dodge the media and quickly head to the weight room where media members are prohibited. Conley gives an explanation for Oden's avoidance. "Greg didn't want to be a distraction," Conley said. "He didn't want all the attention to be on him during the season. That was his way of assisting the team." -------------------------------- Oden was released in March. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
