    Just out of curiousity.

    If Portland came knocking and offered Oden for Hill - and only Oden for Hill, no renegotiations - would you bite?

    Oden is a injury prone player which could not play a full season to save his life. If Portland's GM offered Oden and other players as a trade package, then I would consider it.

    Greg Oden is a 3/4 season rental. He will be back from his surgery in December. After the Rockets get him, do they really want to offer him a multi million dollar long-term contract for a guy wasn't even as healthy as Yao.

    Jordan Hill has 3 years, including this season, left on his contract at a cheaper price. He has outperformed Greg Oden, this season, by just making it to the court.

    Too many homers.When he plays which isn't a lot he is pretty elite especially defensively and rebounding (22 per). Jordan hill doesn't even get on the floor that much.

    Actually the main problem with Oden is if he got traded to us is that his rookie contract is about to expire. The worst thing to happen to this franchise is if Oden plays a full season healthy, we sign him to around 8M a year (a bargain for a healthy Oden), then he breaks down the year after.

    Hell no with injury prone big men. I've had enough of that with Yao Ming.

    So because you don't want a guy who only plays like 1/10 of a season every year you're suddenly a homer? :rolleyes:

    The problem is he played only 22 games last year. Does it make sense for him to back up Yao, when he is still injured right now and on his last year? Do they sign him to an extension and make him a starter for the next 5 years to replace Yao?

    As it stands now jordan hill is a fringe nba player. There have been plenty of no8 picks not to make it. If you were saying would you trade him for luis scola then I would say no. His per last year was better than yao's 2008-2009 season. So in other terms would you rather have yao or hill, and no oden is not better than yao?

    This is not a bad thought, you are taking a risk, because of all the injuries, but Oden was the number 1 pick in the draft, and if he can finally overcome those injuries is a shot blocking rebounding presence in the paint.

    And you would have half a year to find out how he fit..

    I might consider it....

    As others have pointed out, the dilemma is less about Jordan Hill's value and more about Oden's health issues. But if the doctors do a thorough checkup and give him a clean bill of health, I'd say you do it. I love Hill's potential but Oden's an All Star talent.
