The LA Clippers have announced they will not re-sign free agent Lamar Odom to a new contract, amid rumors of drug addictions and a cheating scandal. That’s probably exactly what Odom wanted.
According to Lakers Nation blog, Odom, 33, is still holding on to the hope that his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers, will sign him to a new contract.
Odom’s life has been an emotional roller coaster ever since he was dropped by the Lakers. Odom also played briefly for the Dallas Mavericks who cut him loose after a few games in 2012. The 6′-10″ NBA forward has been living in a hotel as rumors swirl that he cheated on Khloe Kardashian with at least 2 groupies.
Many believe the recent rumors of Odom’s alleged drug addiction are being fed to the media by Kardashian ringleader Kris Jenner, who always has a project or product launch lined up for her fame hungry family.
From Laker Nation:
After an extremely disappointing season with the Dallas Mavericks and mediocre season with the Los Angeles Clippers, Odom has been contemplating his immediate future in the NBA as a free agent this summer. Although Odom has only received interest from the Lakers and Clippers, the veteran forward was reportedly on the fence in terms of deciding on which of these two teams to sign with.
The Clippers appeared to be ready to sign Odom to the veteran’s minimum while keeping former Laker Antawn Jamison in limbo. As for the Lakers, the team expressed interest in the Odom, but have seemingly moved on signing rookie forward Elias Harris recently.
The team still has an open spot on the roster that could’ve been filled by Odom, but if there’s any truth to his current condition, it’s doubtful he’ll play another game in the NBA let alone with the Lakers.
