A person with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday that the Cleveland Cavaliers were exploring the possibility of signing 7-foot center Greg Oden, the former No. 1 overall pick who has undergone three major knee surgeries.
He hasn't played since 2009. While attending Ohio State's game against Wisconsin on Tuesday night, Oden said he hopes to play next season.
Meanwhile, the Cavaliers lost at home to Golden State, 108-95, as Klay Thompson scored a career-high 32 points for the Warriors, who were missing three starters - guard Stephen Curry (ankle), center Andrew Bogut (ankle), and forward Harrison Barnes (knee). Carl Landry didn't play because of a shoulder injury.
