As reported yesterday, representatives of the Miami Heat - including head coach Erik Spoelstra as well as personnel and scouting director Chat Kammerer - were indeed present when free agent center Greg Oden held a private workout Tuesday in Indianapolis.
In addition to the Heat, reps from the Sacramento Kings and the New Orleans Pelicans were also at the workout. Strangely, Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports had earlier reported that just the Kings and Pelicans would be granted permission to see the former 2007 #1 overall draft pick.
Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel today reported that was not the case, with Spoelstra and Kammerer confirmed to be in attendance and that the two also met with Oden.
Tuesday's workout in Indianapolis was limited, with Oden, 25, still working his way back from a series of injuries that have had him out of the league since a Dec. 5, 2009 game with the Portland Trail Blazers.
According to a source familiar with the situation, the 7-foot center's decision ultimately could come down to the team that steps up with the most significant offer. A decision is expected within a week.
