Greg Oden, a former professional basketball player from the United States, has a fortune of $16 million. Portland Trail Blazers/Miami Heat player Oden is most known for his difficult career that was marred by several injuries.
Life in Buffalo, New York, from the time of his birth on January 22nd, 1988: Sarah Scott Middle School, in Terra Haute, Indiana, became his new school when he was just nine years old after his family relocated there. Following his move with his family, he played high school basketball for the Lawrence North High School squad in Indianapolis, Indiana. A three-time Indiana Class 4A basketball state champion, Oden was twice awarded the National Boys Basketball Player of the Year in his senior year of high school (2005, 2006).
Greg Oden joined Ohio State University for the 2006-07 season and made his collegiate debut on December 2nd, 2006, after missing the first half of the season due to a wrist injury. He had 14 points, 10 rebounds, and five blocks in the contest. Sports commentator Steve Kerr dubbed Greg that year as a “once-in-a-decade player.”
When Greg Oden was in college, Oden was a standout defensive player who helped lead his team to the 2007 NCAA championship game. Greg was chosen to the All-American team by the Associated Press, making him the first rookie to get this honor since 1990. Oden revealed his intention to pursue the 2007 NBA draught after his first year of collegiate basketball.
Greg Oden missed his first season due to a knee injury after being picked first overall by the Portland Trail Blazers. Greg missed a quarter of the 2008-09 season due to a variety of ailments, but he put up remarkable numbers in the games he did play in the following season.
Due to a broken patella, Greg Oden only played in 21 of the team’s 82 games in his third season, which was disappointing. Once again, Greg Oden was unable to play a complete season due to microfracture surgery on his left knee in November of 2010, when the Trail Blazers announced that Oden would be out for the 2010-11 season.
After a series of setbacks in 2011 and 2012, Oden required more operations than originally anticipated, and Portland traded him in 2012 to create a place for new players. As part of his commitment to his recovery, Oden declared that he will not be playing in the 2012-13 season.
Greg Oden returned to the court the next season after signing with the Miami Heat. Oden started 23 games that season for the Heat, who went all the way to the NBA finals before losing to the San Antonio Spurs.

Over the following two years, Greg Oden worked tirelessly to try to make a return to the NBA, but his efforts were in vain. On August 26, 2015, Oden signed a one-year, $1.2 million contract with the Chinese Basketball Association’s Jiangsu Dragons. Halfway through the season, Greg decided to leave the squad.
When Greg Oden was younger, he worked as a financial advisor for Edyoucore Sports & Entertainment, a Baltimore-based organization that specializes in assisting amateur and professional players better understand their financial situation.
Having punched his ex-girlfriend in the face, Greg was arrested and charged with violence and three other offenses in August of 2014. The other three counts were dismissed when he pleaded guilty to battery with slight bodily harm. Londyn, Oden, and Sabrina Williams’ first child was born in September of 2016 and the pair married on September 3rd, 2017, in Maui, Hawaii.
Greg bought an $800,000 house in Dublin, Ohio in 2017, according to reports. There are four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a half-bathroom in the 5,300-square-foot house
