From the Associated Press:
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Center Greg Oden's agent says the often-injured former No. 1 draft pick will sign the Portland Trail Blazers' $8.9 million qualifying offer on Friday.
Agent Bill Duffy confirmed that Oden would sign the one-year deal on Friday, when the team opens training camp.
The deal means that Oden will become an unrestricted free agent after this season.
