The New Orleans Pelicans won their final regular NBA Summer League game in Las Vegas Monday. They took on Cleveland, and beat the Cavs 66-62.

Lance Thomas led the way with 14 points and 10 rebounds.  The League's playoffs begin Wednesday.

Meanwhile, League sources are confirming the Pelicans are planning to meet with center Greg Oden. He's the former overall number-one draft pick in 2007 by Portland.

When healthy, Oden can be a beast. Problem is, he has rarely been healthy. He played only 82 career games before being released by the Blazers. That followed five knee surgeries of the micro-fracture variety.

Oden will also reportedly talk with Dallas and Sacramento. The Heat and Spurs are also interested in the unrestricted free agent.
