Despite a destructive offseason, Lamar Odom may get back on the court in the near future. According to sources close to the situation, The Los Angeles Clippers and Odem met for two hours on Friday at team facilities.
Odom has struggled with drugs, a possible divorce from wife Khloe Kardashian, a DUI arrest in August, and was captured on tape destroying a camera man’s equipment. He also struggled on the court last season for the Clippers scoring only 4 points in 19 minutes and 5.9 rebounds.
However, sources have stated that Odem looked healthy and was in good spirits during the meeting. There’s no word whether Odem actually signed a contract, but the Clippers do have room on the roster for him.
According to Yardbarker, former Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro gave current head coach Doc Rivers a positive review of Odem as a player prior to his issues going public.
Reports have shown that the Lakers also might want in on Odom following his recovery. More details will be posted in the coming week as this story develops but one thing is for sure, Odom seems to have regained his focus and could be back on the court this season.
