Lakers Rumors: Lamar Odom Wants to Return to Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Lakers made a surprising move in the off-season when they traded away Lamar Odom to the Dallas Mavericks for essentially cap space.

Welcome Back Lamar?
Everyone was shocked that the Lakers gave away a valuable piece of their bench for no one in return. But it seemed that Odom was the most devastated.

Odom loved his time in Los Angeles and found stability with his work and his family. ESPN’s Ric Bucher is now reporting that Odom is trying desperately to get back to Los Angeles.

The Lakers cannot reacquire Odom this season, but they can get the 32-year-old forward back via trade or if the Mavs buy-out his contract next season.

The Los Angeles Clippers are also very interested in Odom, but they do not have enough of the expiring contracts the Mavericks are looking for.

Lamar Odom had to deal with a tough summer, and was not in the right state-of-mind to play basketball. Hopefully if the Lakers do get Odom back, he can find his previous groove and return to the elite level he was playing at before being traded.
