Lamar Odom On The Lakers? — He Wants To Retire A Laker Player

Khloe Kardashian‘s husband, who played for the Lakers for seven seasons, was bitter after they traded him to the Dallas Mavericks in 2011. Lamar was even close to tears when discussing the trade in 2011, but it sounds like he is willing to forgive and forget!

“It’s very close if not already in the works that Lamar is reuniting with the Los Angeles Lakers,” a source tells EXCLUSIVELY. “He wants to retire a Laker.”

ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne tweeted on July 6, “Lakers have reached out to Lamar Odom, but it been [sic] hard to determine how high interest level is on either side thus far.”

Lamar Odom Says The Clippers Are His Second Choice

Lamar played for the L.A. Clippers last season, and sources close to the NBA star told EXCLUSIVELY that although he plans to sign with the Lakers if they offer him a contract, he would also consider staying with the Clippers if the price is right.

“The Clippers are his second choice, but the Clippers will not give him anywhere close to the eight million dollars he made last year,” the source reveals. “So with similar money, if not a little more than the Lakers will be able to offer, he is ready to go that route. It’s only a matter of time.”
