Lakers Rumors & News Recap: Lamar Odom’s Fate Uncertain

Lamar OdomBefore the Los Angeles Lakers agreed to terms with undrafted rookie Elias Harris on a two-year deal, the team reuniting with Lamar Odom appeared to be a likely scenario. Odom remains a free agent almost a month into NBA free agency with the Los Angeles Clippers seemingly passing on re-signing the veteran forward and the Lakers unclear about their intentions to sign or not sign the former Sixth Man of the Year.

Once Harris agreed to terms, the writing appeared to be on the wall with the Lakers also passing on the opportunity to sign Odom. Although one guaranteed contract remains for the team moving forward, the consensus seems to be that they’ll likely sign another young prospect rather than bringing back the two-time NBA champion.

As of right now, the top two players on the team’s radar for the final spot may very well be Chris Douglas-Roberts and Marcus Landry. Douglas-Roberts has been trying to make the team for quite some time while Landry made an impression on the summer league squad in Las Vegas recently.

Another possibility is Austin Daye. Harris coming to terms with the team may have changed the team’s stance on Daye, but there’s still a possibility the Lakers may still be considering the former first-round draft pick.
