The Knicks are "weighing" whether to sign Lamar Odom before the regular season ends, according to Marc Stein.

There has been reported mutual interest since Apr.5 and he could receive a team option on the possible contract. Odom had a really tough year and getting back in the NBA will probably help him get back on track. Obviously, fantasy owners shouldn't look to add him.
Apr 11 - 7:43 PM

Free agent Lamar Odom has met twice with Knicks president Phil Jackson, according to the New York Post.

Jackson is described as being on a "talent hunt" for players familiar with the triangle offense, and Metta World Peace is also on his radar. Odom is 34 years old and he could still mount a comeback despite a disastrous year, but he won't play this season. We'll have to wait until the summer to see how far Jackson can overhaul the Knicks' expensive roster.

Lamar Odom's contract with Laboral Kutxa in Spain was terminated after he left to rehab his ailing back in the U.S. for two months.

Odom reportedly packed up all of his belongings before he left Spain, and his stint in Europe ended after just two on-court appearances and a grand total of six minutes in EuroBasket competition. It's safe to question whether Odom's playing days are over.

Lamar Odom is expected to sign with Laboral Kutxa in Spain.

It's great to see Odom get his basketball career going again after a horrible offseason. He probably won't be back in the NBA again, but his story should be an interesting thing to monitor in Europe.

Lamar Odom has returned to L.A. after two weeks of "strenuous workouts" and could be ready to play by mid-January.

He didn't do any contact work during his recent training and it remains to be seen whether the Lakers or Clippers will take a gamble by signing him mid-season.

Neither Lamar Odom nor the Clippers are in any rush to ink a deal.

Both sides are waiting a few weeks to see where things stand. This report comes on the heals of a video released by TMZ that shows an apparently intoxicated Odom. The date the video was filmed is unknown, but it is believed to be within the last month. Odom is continuing to train and work out at the University of Rhode Island.

Lamar Odom reportedly looks "very good physically" and is getting closer to being able to play.

Odom has been spotted working out at the University of Rhode Island recently as he continues his long journey down comeback trail. This is great news for Odom as he attempts to move his headlines from the tabloids section to the sports section, but he hasn't been a productive player in over two years and doesn't warrant any attention from fantasy owners.

Lamar Odom was seen working out at the University of Rhode Island.

He went to school at URI and has been working out with famous trainer Rob McClanaghan. Odom getting out of the spotlight in Los Angeles for the time being makes sense and he sounds like he's really trying to get his career back on track. This is great to hear after his summer, but he's off the radar in fantasy leagues.

Doc Rivers confirmed that he's met with free agent Lamar Odom.

He added that he likes Odom, but that's about all there is to it for now. Odom will have a lot of work to do in order to get minutes with the Clippers, but it's nice that he's able to get his life back on track.

According to reports, an NBA executive said Lamer Odom "looked pretty good" and that he is "not heavy weight-wise."

The front office worker also said Odom is "talking like he really wants to play again." The NBA will look into Odom's offseason issues before allowing any deal to take place. The Clippers have a 14-man roster, meaning they can sign a free agent without cutting any current players.

The Clippers could be close to signing Lamar Odom, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

According to the report, the players on the team are under the impression that Odom will be signed. Additionally, ESPN is reporting that Odom's timetable has been accelerated recently. He had a rough offseason with alleged drug use and being charged with a DUI, so it's a little surprising the Clippers would bring him on.

Lamar Odom is being closely monitored by both Los Angeles teams.

The troubled former Laker and Clipper has started training recently and both Los Angeles teams are keeping a close eye on his progress. Odom has made it clear he feels most comfortable playing in L.A. and is reportedly eyeing a comeback for the second half of the season. We wish Odom all the best as he tries to get his personal and basketball lives back together, but fantasy owners shouldn't have him on a watch list just yet.

TMZ is reporting that Lamar Odom is flying to New York in order to meet with some NBA teams that may have interest in signing him.

The report goes on to say that he's got documentation and proof that he is clean and sober, which would go a long to getting him back in the league, if true. This is happening on the same day his attorney pleaded not guilty to Odom's recent DUI charge. It will be interesting to watch this story develop, as it seemed likely Odom's NBA career was over a few weeks ago.

Lamar Odom's arraignment was rescheduled for October 10th.

The hearing stems from his August arrest on DUI charges. Odom is represented by Robert Shapiro, the well-known lawyer who has made a name for himself defending other athletes, such as O.J. Simpson, Darryl Strawberry, and Jose Canseco.
