Lakers Rumors: Lamar Odom Still ‘Wants To Be A Laker’

Former Sixth Man of the Year, Lamar Odom, has reportedly been missing for the last three days and feared to be using crack cocaine. Odom’s life continues to spiral out of control with the 33-year-old struggling to save his marriage with reality star, Khloe Kardashian.

Although Odom remains missing, with all sorts of rumors floating around about what he may or may not be doing, a contact close to Odom in New York says the two-time NBA champion still wants to a member of the Los Angeles Lakers according to Jared Zwerling of ESPNNewYork.com via Twitter:

After an extremely disappointing season with the Dallas Mavericks and mediocre season with the Los Angeles Clippers, Odom has been contemplating his immediate future in the NBA as a free agent this summer. Although Odom has only received interest from the Lakers and Clippers, the veteran forward was reportedly on the fence in terms of deciding on which of these two teams to sign with.

The Clippers appeared to be ready to sign Odom to the veteran’s minimum while keeping former Laker Antawn Jamison in limbo. As for the Lakers, the team expressed interest in the Odom, but have seemingly moved on signing rookie forward Elias Harris recently.

The team still has an open spot on the roster that could’ve been filled by Odom, but if there’s any truth to his current condition, it’s doubtful he’ll play another game in the NBA let alone with the Lakers.
