Knicks waive forward Lamar Odom.
This could be it for Odom, as Phil Jackson knows his former pupil better than anybody and elected to pass. He'll be remembered for his insane versatility and also his inability to take charge as a No. 1 and sometimes No. 2 guy, but on the whole he was an extremely good player and we wish him well in his future endeavors.

Lamar Odom has been working out in Los Angeles but he's expected to join the Knicks at their practice facility by the end of June.

Odom has been slowly getting into shape in L.A., while receiving physical therapy to overcome a back injury that ended his brief stint playing in Spain this season. "If he wants to put himself back together in a basketball life, he’s got a chance to do this," said Phil Jackson. "Having a relationship with him, I figure this is a pretty good risk/reward situation for us." The 34-year-old Odom has a chance to salvage his career in New York, but fantasy owners should view him skeptically given his disastrous play since 2012.

Lamar Odom will begin his comeback attempt at the Knicks training facility on Monday.

Odom signed on with the Knicks with one game left in the regular season, and he will now attempt to get into basketball shape in order to be ready for next year. After winning the Sixth Man of the Year award in 2011 Odom's play fell off a cliff, and he did not play at all last season due to alleged issues with crack. His contract is non-guaranteed, so there is little risk for the Knicks here. Odom was Phil Jackson's first player acquisition as acting president of basketball operations for the Knickerbockers.

Lamar Odom is expected to be in New York this week to work out.

He signed with the Knicks on the last day of the season and has a team option for next season. The Knicks do need some depth, but Odom may have some impressing to do considering he's been out of the league all season. Odom is off the fantasy radar.

Knicks sign F Lamar Odom.

Leave it to the Knicks to sign Odom on the last day of the season, but there is a team option for next year. Odom is from New York, but the vast majority of his career came in Los Angeles. He'll have his work cut out for him to get minutes next season. Odom will make $8,500 for the one game.

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.
Sat, Nov 16, 2013 09:06:00 PM

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.
