Found November 14, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
Lamar Odom has had a quiet few weeks, so that can only mean one thing. He’s ready to play basketball. Larry Brown Sports via ESPN L.A. is reporting that both the Lakers and Clippers are showing interest in the 34 year old Odom and would be open to signing him if his troubles are finally behind him. Sources told ESPN.com that the Clippers and Lakers — who both registered interest in signing Odom this past summer until his private life became a near-daily subject for the tabloid media — will have renewed interest in the 33-year-old if he indeed makes a comeback this season. Odom recently began training again with an eye toward making a return to the floor during the second half of the season, sources have said. Sources stressed, though, that neither the Clippers nor the Lakers have had recent contact with Odom beyond calls inquiring about his personal welfare. The Lakers would seem to have the more pressing need for Odom at this time.
