If Lamar Odom had a choice, he’d be playing for the Los Angeles Clippers or Los Angeles Lakers this season.
Both the Clippers and Lakers have expressed some mild interest in the forward, though, neither has rushed to retain his services as they’ve filled out their benches.
Fully aware of that, Odom has had to expand his horizons and it’s possible he could rejoin his former team, the Miami Heat, assuming they have interest in him:
Q: It’s surprising to me that Lamar Odom is still a free agent. Ira, do you think that Lamar is on our list and what’s your take on Lamar coming to Miami? — Gago, Los Angeles.
A: Word is Lamar’s preference is to remain in Los Angeles. But if he is amenable to the minimum, I would have to think Pat Riley would find a place for him in Miami. While he has not been the same player the past two seasons, he still would have value as a utility player, if he is willing to accept such a role.
Odom spent last year with the Clippers but was relatively awful in the little playing time he received, averaging just four points a game while shooting a woeful 39% (he shot 35% in Dallas the previous year).
