Reports suggest that Lamar and Khloe Kardashian are hoping the NBA star gets picked up by the LA Clippers, but sources tell HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that there is no finalized deal! Find out all the details of Lamar’s potential career move!
“Lamar’s agent is in talks with the Clippers,” a source close to Lamar told Radar Online. “He and Khloe are thrilled that he’ll be returning to the team and that they will get to stay in LA and be close to their families.”
Being picked up by to the Clippers would be familiar territory for Lamar, 32, who first played for the team from 1999 to 2003, before of course playing for the LA Lakers!
“Lamar wants to return to Los Angeles and the Clippers want him. They just need to work out finances and contractual issues,” the source tells the magazine.
Khloe, 27, is actively trying to start a family with her hubby and this move would be opportune for the reality stars! Khloe would be around the rest of her family as she raises her potential baby!
“Khloe wants to be near her own family when she and Lamar start their family and this new job for him will make that all happen so easily. She was happy to move to Dallas and would move anywhere for Lamar, but having him on a team in LA is a dream come true,” the source says.
Unfortunately for Lamar and Khloe, our source connected with the Clippers tells Hollywoodlife.com that they are “Not sure about any player moves just yet. They are waiting until at least June 28th when the NBA Draft is, which will make any other free agent decisions possible. Since they only have one pick this year, (unless they make some trades) that is the only focus the Clippers management are looking into at this time.”
The source then added, “Truth be told, many are not a big fan of Lamar either for what he did in Dallas, but if he does come here ready to play and is properly motivated, than I think it is a good option with the young core of the team. Let’s see what happens with the Olympics — that should really determine everything! So decisions on Lamar Odom talking to join the team haven’t really materialized yet. Time will tell.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Will Lamar get signed to the LA Clippers?
