Oden, a former top pick in the NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers, is attempting to make a comeback after injuries derailed his career after just 82 games.
He reportedly will work out on Thursday for the Atlanta Hawks and meet with the Pelicans later this week.
The 25-year-old has not played in an NBA game since December 5, 2009, because of knee problems.
The Golden State Warriors have waived forward/center Dwayne Jones, guard Scott Machado and guard Kevin Murphy.
Jones was signed on the final day of the regular season and appeared in two playoff games for the Warriors.
Machado signed with the Warriors on April 7 and saw brief action in five playoff games.
Murphy was acquired from the Utah Jazz as part of a three-team trade on July 10 in which Golden State also landed Andre Iguodala from the Denver Nuggets.
