With the big names off the board, Greg Oden is now the topic of discussion as free agency winds down into its final stages.
The Sacramento Kings are just one of the handful of teams interested in signing the injury-riddled center.
Oden, as Sean Cunningham of News10 reports, met with the Kings on Tuesday.

The San Antonio Spurs, New Orleans Pelicans, Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks are all teams with varying levels of interest.
The Heat, who now seem like the frontrunner after amnestying Mike Miller, offer Oden a chance to win a championship, as do the Spurs. The Pelicans, Kings and Mavericks can’t provide the former No. 1 pick with that luxury, but they can offer him a place to rejuvenate himself in a low-pressure situation.
It’s a pick your poison situation. Winning is always nice, but Oden’s merely trying to establish himself. If he underperforms or succumbs to another injury with the Heat or Spurs, it could again get ugly for him.
