Lamar Odom is keeping his eyes on the prize and that prize is playing in the NBA once more, but will it be with the New York Knicks? HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that Lamar has picked the struggling franchise in his attempt to put on an NBA uniform once again.
Lamar Odom, 34, is an old man by NBA standards but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to make a comeback and potentially join the roster of the New York Knicks, according to a source close to the former LA Laker.
Lamar Odom — Signing With The Knicks To Get His NBA Career Back On Track?
The source revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com that the negotiations between the Knicks and Lamar are “now again in Lamar’s favor.”
“He may sign with the team to play in the last few games of the regular season and also play with them next year,” the source said. “Basically the make or break day is Monday (April 14), if he signs with the team, or not — will be ultimately decided by the end of the weekend.”
Lamar had been overseas in Spain playing ball for Baskonia before a back issue forced him to end his contract with the team and come back to the states.
HollywoodLife.com learned exclusively from a source close to Lamar, on March 17, that he didn’t let the issue stop him from setting his sights on the NBA once more.
“He does have back issues but by quitting the team in Spain it allows him to train in the US and get healthy,” our inside source said. “He really has to pick his spots, and one of those spots is the New York Knicks — now that Phil Jackson is with the Knicks.”
Lamar Get’s NBA Career Back On Track By Signing With The New York Knicks?
Maybe this is all part of Lamar’s plan to win Khloe Kardashian back. However, things look like they’re going to be an uphill battle for him. Khloe has been spending a lot of time recently with rapper French Montana. The two have gone out on several dates together.
On April 10 she went on a romantic double date with French, sister Kourtney, and brother-in-law Scott Disick. The couples found themselves chowing down on some good italian food at Cecconi’s in L.A.
But Khloe has also been rumored to have a thing for L.A. ball player Matt Kemp.
Lamar, we don’t know what you’re going to do but if you want Khloe back you’re going to have to do something fast. Only time will tell if you’ll be able to get back onto an NBA team and back into Khloe’s heart at the same time.
What do you think HollywoodLifers, can Lamar rekindle his former NBA glory by playing for the New York Knicks? Let us know!
