Greg Oden is giving basketball another shot. The 30 year old will attend a draft combine for the BIG 3, a 3-on-3 basketball league co-founded by Ice Cube that had its inaugural season last summer. The league announced Oden’s invitation via Twitter on Monday:

It is worth noting that Oden has simply received an invitation to the combine, and an opportunity to be drafted, not a guaranteed roster spot. Oden last played professionally for the Jiangsu Dragons of the Chinese Basketball Association during the 2015-16 season, appearing in 25 games.

The BIG 3 features eight teams made up of mostly former NBA players, including the likes of Allen Iverson, Jermaine O’Neal and Brian Scalabrine. The 2017 draft was held last April. The league’s second season will begin June 22nd.
