What is Greg Oden's net worth and salary? Greg Oden is a basketball player in the NBA with a net worth of $15 million. His net worth reflects his success in professional basketball, which is a highly competitive field in which few people are able to stand out from the pack. Oden first started playing what would become his chosen sport when he was only a young child, playing interscholastic basketball while attending middle school. From there, glory followed, becoming a champion basketball player in high school and eventually moving on to play for Ohio State University. In 2007, Oden became one of the lucky few to enter the NBA Draft, being chosen by the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round. Unfortunately, Oden's NBA career has been marked by many injuries, with lots of games missed due to them. Since 2007, Oden has only played 82 games over five seasons, which is the rough equivalent of one full season in the NBA. Just this month (May 2012), Oden announced that he would be on the bench for the 2012-13 NBA season in order to focus on rehabilitating his numerous injuries sustained on the court. Hopefully, Oden will come roaring back and reach the heights that he's seemingly been destined for since the beginning.
