First up? Current Los Angeles Clippers free agent, Lamar Odom.
According to ESPN Los Angeles, the Lakers have contacted Lamar Odom about returning to his former stomping grounds but there’s no word on the interest of Odom.
Per Ramona Shelburne:
Lakers have reached out to Lamar Odom, but it been hard to determine how high interest level is on either side thus far.
The Clippers have also expressed a desire to retain Odom, so it will most likely come down to who offers a bigger/longer contract and who offers the most playing time. They both play in the same building and Odom, who has spent the vast majority of his career with the Lakers and Clippers would be pretty comfortable in either situation.
Either way, expect to see the free agent in Los Angeles this coming season, just depends on if it’ll be in red and white or purple and Forum Blue.
