Khloe Kardashian’s husband, Lamar, is in talks to rejoin the Los Angeles Lakers. Are you happy he’s going back to his old team?

A source tells EXCLUSIVELY that basketball player and Khloe & Lamar star Lamar Odom, 33, will re-sign with the L.A. Lakers if they give him an offer.

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.”

HollywoodLifers, do you think Lamar Odom should return to the Lakers? What would the move mean for Khloe and Lamar?

He was treated badly last time..but his heart has always been with the lakers…there is still chemistry with Kobe and ++Gasol…that is a start…I hope he will join the laskers…now that everyone can see how Mitch screwed up the team the last 3 years…giving away good players in return for nothing

I’m sure Lamar would like to collect the paycheck. I hope if they do take him back it will be a rule that he will not be a distraction, with a bunch of K people lined up to have their pics taken at the game. Or that he has to promise not to have cameras rolling around after him getting footage for web sites like this one, ego boosts, or promotion for the unreality show. He surely could not have concentrated on being an athlete with all the hoopla surrounding him. I wondered how the coaches and team mates felt about his focus and team spirit while he tried to play basketball with a Kardashian entourage looking on.
