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.

  • Not sure what the story says. Just saw the headline and wanted to comment... WHO THE HELL CARES WHAT LAMAR KARDASHIAN WANTS!!!! He was a useless douche here in Dallas. Khloe has bigger balls than Lamar. Good luck to whatever sucker team decides to sign him. They'll need it after he sucks the life out of your team.
  • Your an idiot
  • Probably has more rings than your guy Snooner
  • The "family" has a store in NY where the move could help continue the Lamar/Chloe show. In reality, Lamar needs to up his game to where it was prior to the Dallas trade and be the type of player he was. If not, no team will want him. He "bailed" on his Dallas teammates and they all know it. LA could use him back too.
  • Ok, first we all know why she married him--MONEY and gettin that a-- is all he wants. He couldnt handle the city of Dallas? Really? Sister Kardashian are nothing but a bunch of high priced you know what and why the media follows them around, well they have nothing better to do. All 3 are dog faced, trash with junk in all the trunk....go to new york lamar, you wont last..
  • She has her own money, long money. Her earning potenial is much greater than his. Get facts before commenting.
  • Lamar K. hopes any one will pick him up. He sucks andd still can not get over being let go from LA BOO HOO. He will be playing in the D-League some where.
  • odom should go back to his wife and keep playing mamas boy role in the reality show
  • the problem for any team that takes lamar is baggage he brings with him. the kardashian mess is going to make any GM think twice about lamar. he bought into that family and that's on him. since then, he's been dumped by the lakers and dallas. his mind was never in basketball, but rather a stupid reality show. why would the knicks invite that into their clubhouse? they shouldn't and i hope they don't. the knicks are an up and coming team again and lamar's family baggage is too much for any team to put up with.
  • Odom I hope you do not seeing this ****,But if you are F-the A-holes on here,sorry for your loss,put God frist and all thing will come if its Gods Will!!! this is Ellis J. James and I got your Back!!!!!
  • that is a brilliant and super desire, lame-ass kardashian. we can easily accomodate your losing ways....how about a no-brainer, dallas gives lame Kard to the knicks for chandler
