Lamar Odom seeking buyout from Mavs... to go to Celts or Nets!
 
Hmmm.... interesting!

Report: Lamar Odom Requests Buyout From Mavericks to Join Celtics or Nets - NBA - NESN.com

Quote:


Lamar Odom might not even make it through an entire season with the Dallas Mavericks.

Once a key piece in the Los Angeles Lakers' failed attempt at trading for point guard Chris Paul, Odom was eventually shipped off to the defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks. After spending a tumultuous 32 games with the Mavericks, in which he started four games, Odom struggled to find an identity with the team.

Odom is having his worst statistical season of his career after winning Sixth Man of the Year with Los Angeles in 2010-11, shooting just 35 percent from the field, 57 percent from the free throw line, while averaging 7.7 points per game.


As a result, Odom may now be searching for his second home in less than a year.

After speaking with a league executive Tuesday night, Hoops Authority has learned that Odom is seeking a buyout from the Mavericks, with his focus set on taking his talents to the Boston Celtics or New Jersey Nets.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has vehemently denied a previous report by ESPNDallas.com documenting Odom's request, but we have confirmed that such a request has been made.

Both the Celtics and Nets are intriguing options for the 12-year veteran forward.

The Celtics currently hold the final playoff spot in the East and are one of the most undersized and unathletic teams in the conference. Boston boasts an aging front court of Jermaine O'Neal and Kevin Garnett followed by Chris Wilcox off the bench. Odom, who spent his previous seven years with the Lakers, would receive a warm welcome from the Celtics who desperately need size and athleticism.

seriously, does he think he'll be playing for another contender in his next 3-4 years in NBA?

rockthetdot 03-02-2012 06:41 PM

No the team sent him down for 1 game so that he could get his legs back after missing 4 games.

Stonezz 03-02-2012 07:01 PM

He asked for it. Can't send a vet to the D-League without his permission.

Initially he didn't want to go but they talked him into doing it apparently.

The Mavs leaders... presumably Dirk/Kidd...and Jason Terry...Told Odom to go home until he was ready to be a committed Mav...

Maybe him and Felton can start a fat camp for benched NBA players?

With his coach and teammates challenging him to step up, Lamar Odom will reportedly skip his refresher in the D-League and join the Dallas Mavericks for their home game against the Utah Jazz on Saturday night.

He'll get traded I think.

Dallas should package him with Beaubois and get some useful expiring who can still play...
