Former number one overall pick Greg Oden worked out in Indianapolis today for representatives from the New Orleans Pelicans, Miami Heat, and Sacramento Kings.

Contrary to reports last week that the Pelicans had offered Oden a contract, no club has made an official offer as of today.

Oden will work out for the Atlanta Hawks tomorrow, before traveling to Las Vegas for a private meeting with the Pelicans.

Pelicans head coach Monty Williams and assistant Randy Ayers are in Vegas this week for team USA basketball minicamp. New Orleans point guard Jrue Holiday, power forward Anthony Davis, and power forward Ryan Anderson are also taking part in the camp.

Oden has only played 82 career NBA games sinceĀ  Portland selected him No. 1 overall in 2007. His last appearance came in 2009. Major injuries and multiple surgeries to his knees have kept him off the court for much of his career. However, Oden’s young age (25) and vast potential continues to make him an intriguing prospect.

In addition to the Pelicans, Heat, Kings, and Hawks, the San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks also have strong interest in Oden.
