Some believe the Thunder might win 10 to 15 more games this season after trading for veterans like Desmond Mason. By matt strasen, the oklahomanpick Derrick Rose, turn the Bulls into a viable Eastern Conference threat? •Old faces, new places: In case you've been too busy watching football, listed below are some players that have switched teams: Elton Brand (76ers); Jermaine O'Neal (Raptors); Baron Davis (Clippers); Ron Artest (Rockets); Richard Jefferson (Bucks); T.J. Ford (Pacers); Mo Williams (Cavaliers); Corey Maggette (Warriors); Mike Miller (T-Wolves); James Posey (Hornets); Marcus Camby (Clippers); Eduardo Najera (Nets). •Good to go: Greg Oden's NBA debut with Portland is Oct. 28 against Kobe Bryant and the LA Lakers. Oden, the No. 1 pick in 2007, missed the entire season with an ACL injury. Oden, who rode a mountain bicycle for 10 days in Hawaii late this summer to test the knee, said he's fully recovered. Three other high-profile players coming off injuries also are optimistic: Dwayne Wade (Miami) showed in the Olympics his knee is healed. Andrew Bynum (Lakers) expects to be fully recovered from a dislocated kneecap. Yao Ming (Houston) wasn't 100 percent in the Olympics, but his foot injury didn't suffer a setback in China.
