Former Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden reportedly will not sign a contract until this summer.

Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports that former Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden might not agree to a contract until this summer.

Injury-riddled center Greg Oden probably won't sign with a team until the off-season, his agent Mike Conley told Yahoo! Sports. The Cavs are interested in the ex-Ohio State star.

It was reported earlier this month that Oden could soon be offered a multi-year contract by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In Early February, Oden met with the Boston Celtics. He's been repeatedly linked to the Cavaliers and the Miami Heat in recent reports and this latest round of comeback talk was kicked off by a report that initially tied him to the Heat. Back in December, it was reported that Oden has lost significant weight as he rehabilitates from his latest round of knee surgeries. Also in December, Blazers forward Nicolas Batum said Oden still wants to play in the NBA.

Oden underwent microfracture surgery on his left knee and arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in February 2012. In May 2012, he underwent Orthokine treatment on both of his knees. He hasn't played in an NBA game since December 2009 and was released by the Blazers in March 2012.

Oden, 25, holds career averages of 9.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game in 82 appearances.
