Lamar Odom: Possible Clippers Reunion Coming?

Lamar Odom

Despite the whirlwind off-season that he has had, Lamar Odom may get to return to basketball in the near future. According to Adrian Wojnarowsi the Los Angeles Clippers and the free agent forward met for 2 hours on Friday at team facilities. 

Odom has struggled this off-season after drug allegations, rumors of a divorce from Khloe Kardashian, a DUI arrest in August, and a TMZ video in which he destroyed a camera man’s equipment. Odom struggled last season for the Clippers with career lows in points (4), and minutes (19.7) and 5.9 rebounds.

While getting his health straight is Odom’s main priority, there were statements that he looked healthy, and in good condition during the meeting. No initial word on the possibility of signing Odom, but the Clippers do have an open roster spot available, and the move could re-energize Odom, as well as bring even more depth to the Clippers bench.

According to the report, former Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro gave current head coach Doc Rivers, a strong and positive review of Odom as a player, teammate, and locker room presence, prior to his issues becoming public.

More details will be posted as we follow this story, one thing is for sure, Odom seems to have improved his health and life as a whole, now he just needs a chance to return to basketball.
