Lamar Odom reached out to Laker teammate Pau Gasol via Twitter to inquire about what it’s like to hoop across the pond. The LA Times has the blow-by-blow: “Whether it reflects his pessimism concerning the NBA lockout, uncertainty about the Lakers or hope to expand Khloe Kardashian’s brand, forward Lamar Odom told Pau Gasol in a tweet that he may play in Europe after next season. ‘it’s ya boy @RealLamarOdom !’ Odom tweeted to Gasol. ‘My dude really want 2 talk 2 u! Really thinking about going 2 play in Europe after this season!’ Odom has a two-year, $17-million contract remaining with the Lakers, but he only has one guaranteed season, in 2011-2012, worth $8.9 million. The Lakers have a $8.2-million option for the 2012-2013 campaign. Only $2.4 million of that option is guaranteed, meaning it’s possible Odom could become a free agent in 2012. It remains unclear whether the Lakers would keep him, particularly after their unsuccessful bid to trade him this offseason to the Minnesota Timberwolves. ‘What’s going on @RealLamarOdom!?” Gasol replied. ‘I’m happy to hear from you! I’m in Lithuania right now. I’ll get in touch with you later today!’”
