Greg Oden and his agent, Mike Conley, plan to soon resume contract talks with the Miami Heat.
Conley believes the Heat are intrigued by the possibility of adding Oden.
"Obviously, they've got a need there," Conley said of a center. "It's a situation where they probably can't go out and get a top player (with the money they have), but they can take chance on somebody like Greg and his upside. The exposure (of playing for the Heat) would be good for Greg. He could work his way back into his game. I think Miami is a good situation."
Pat Riley confirmed the Heat had a "good two-day" visit last month with Oden.
"We will explore that and see where it goes because of the possibilities," Riley said. "I think he's such a young player and to be such a force, that you'd want to monitor him very closely."
