Could the Kardashians be taking New York for a second time? According to a report from Ian Begley, Lamar Odom’s top choice in free agency would be to join the Knicks.
Begley reports that Odom’s priority is to be comfortable, and he feels he can be in New York.
The problem for the Queens native is that he’s still on the Mavericks’ roster and they are trying to trade him before June 29. Any team that has him on their roster at that date owes him $2.4 million guaranteed next season.
If Dallas is unable to trade Odom, they are likely to waive him, at which point he could be claimed or become a free agent.
Though Odom seems interested in signing with the Knicks, they may not want him. The Lakers could have some interest given that several of his former teammates would welcome him back, but the decision would be up to the front office. We do know that scenario would be pleasing to his wife.

No one knows where Lamar Odom will be playing basketball next season. After a tumultuous season with the Dallas Mavericks he'll more than likely wind up as a free agent since I don't think Odom could be traded for a bobsled at this particular moment. Odom is still under contract with the Mavericks and he could be traded or waived/bought out.
Despite his one bad season...
Lamar Odom’s future is unclear at this point, but we can pretty much expect the Mavericks to trade, or waive, the 2x NBA champ following a disappointing year in Dallas.
According to ESPN, any team that has Odom on it’s roster come June 29th must buy him out for $2.4 million or otherwise accept responsibility for the full $8.2 million that Odom is scheduled to earn in 2012...
Lamar Odom may still have something to offer to an NBA team, because it's being reported that Odom may be heading to the New York Knicks.According to ESPN, if the Dallas Mavericks can't get rid of Odom (via a trade), then they'll likely waive him and be responsible for paying Odom his money -- something Dallas is trying to avoid having to do.If the Mavericks are forced...
Lamar Odom’s ’11-’12 season was a bust. Starting with the trade gone wrong that would’ve sent LO to the Hornets, up through his disastrous time with the Mavericks, Lamar never found a comfort zone. But that’s behind him now and Odom is ready to return to a new team. “COMFORT” is a huge issue in [...]
New York-native Lamar Odom has decided he wants to add his hometown team the New York Knicks to the list of basketball cities he has called home during his NBA career. Odom still has one year left to his contract with the Dallas Mavericks at $8.2 million but a team has up to June 29 to buy him out at $2.4 million if they don’t want to pay the whole sum.CLICK HERE TO READ MORE »
So much for that heated rivalry between the Mavericks and Spurs. Dallas star Dirk Nowitzki is picking San Antonio to beat the Thunder in the Western Conference finals of the NBA playoffs, and he lauded Gregg Popovich while doing so.
“I think San Antonio’s going to do it, just because they’ve got one more home game,” he said Tuesday on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM’s “Galloway...
Mark Cuban was critical of the Facebook IPO, citing the effect it will have on individual investors and that the valuation bubble of Silicon Valley companies is bursting.
Even before the Dallas Mavericks had officially lost their first-round series with the Thunder, Dirk Nowitzki made it clear he would be watching intently to see what Mark Cuban and Donnie Nelson did this offseason. Nowitzki told FOXSportsSouthwest.com that if the Mavs weren't able to land a "big fish" in the offseason, it would provide evidence they should've simply...
Their season hasn't even ended yet, but already there's speculation that Philadelphia 76ers swingman Andre Iguadola could be out of the City of Brotherly Love this summer. According to Alex Kennedy with Hoopsworld, The Los Angeles Lakers, who have already targeted Iggy once may try to trade for him once more this summer.
Andre Iguodala was nearly traded from the Philadelphia...
I’ll admit that every year I go into the NBA season rooting for the Lakers to win the title, but I knew going into this season that it was going to be hard pressed to win the Western Conference, yet alone the NBA Championship this year for this Lakers squad. The team was fundamentally flawed in so many ways, starting with the loss of Lamar Odom.
When the Chris Paul trade was...
