Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is disputing reports that he demoted his star forward Lamar Odom to a lower level team.
Cuban tells TMZ.com that Lamar Odom will rejoin the team after a brief "rehab" stint down with his D-League team. Cuban said the decision was Odom's to make.
Cuban explains, "[Lamar] is doing great. D-League is rehab. [He] needs to get in great shape and then rejoin the Mavs."
He continues, "Know how baseball teams send a guy down to the minor leagues to get some games in and get timing back? Same thing."
"Things are going great. He is working super hard. All is good."
Odom is expected to rejoin the Mavericks when they face Oklahoma City on Monday (Mar. 5).
This is good news for Odom's wife Khloe Kardashian, who never stopped supporting her man. Khloe took to social network Twitter.com last night to rail against blogs who are only focused on spreading false gossip.
