The SportsXchange

Center Greg Oden worked out in front of representatives from the Miami Heat, Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans for two hours on Tuesday in Indianapolis, acccording to an ESPN report.

Oden, a former top pick in the NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers, is attemtping to make a comeback after injuries derailed his career after just 82 games.

Among those who watched Oden's workout were Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and Kings general manager Pete D'Alessandro, ESPN reported.

"It went well," a source told ESPN. "He did a ton of agility stuff, ran suicides and also did drills on the court."

Oden is attracting plenty of attention from NBA teams. He reportedly will work out on Thursday for the Atlanta Hawks and meet with the Pelicans later this week. The San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks also appear to be interested in the 7-footer, an Indianapolis native who played one season at Ohio State.

The 25-year-old has not played in an NBA game since Dec. 5, 2009, because of knee problems. He underwent a third microfracture surgery in 2012.
