Lamar Odom's Baskonia debut doesn't go well

Trouble forward Lamar Odom has not been able to find a job in the NBA.

Since being traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks before the 2011-12 season, Odom has been in a rut. After a year in Dallas, his stint with Los Angeles Clippers last season didn’t work too well out either.  His problems with drugs came to the surface through his celebrity marriage and his wife, Khloe Kardashian, has filed for divorce.

Odom is trying to resurrect his career with Baskonia in Spain.

On Thursday, he mad his debut and according to the Associated Press, it did not go well.

Odom played just six minutes to finish the first half, grabbing two rebounds while committing three fouls.

The 34-year-old power forward showed a lack of match fitness and touch after 10 months out of the game as he also missed a 3-point attempt.

Odom did not return in the second half of the Euroleague game as coach Sergio Scariolo said Odom’s body was dealing with the aches and pains of a long layaway.

Odom averaged 13.3 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game over 13 NBA seasons.
