It's Official, Oden is Headed to the NBA [David Stefanini]

Finally we know for sure what Greg Oden is doing; he is going to enter the NBA Draft. This has been an ongoing story that we all should have known the answer to.

Oden proved to the world he is going to be a great player in the NBA by that dominating performance in the NCAA Title game. Here is more of this story from

"Ohio State freshmen Greg Oden, Mike Conley Jr., and Daequan Cook will all declare for the NBA draft Friday, a source close to the situation told Thursday night.

A formal news release is going to come out Friday on all three, detailing their decision, according to a source.

Oden is expected to announce that he will stay in the draft where he will likely be tabbed as the No. 1 pick on June 28.

Conley, who could be the top point guard taken, will stay in the draft if he is in the top 10 or at the very least the lottery (1-14). Conley doesn't have to sign with an agent since his father, Mike Conley Sr., will represent him after he was certified as an agent recently and opened up his own company. Conley Sr. is also expected to represent Oden, whom he mentored and coached as a youth in Indiana."
