Report: Lamar Odom Asked the Dallas Mavericks for a Buyout

Lamar Odom’s roller coaster ride in Dallas continues, and even though everyone claims that things are starting to look up for him, a Yahoo! Sports report states that Odom requested a buyout from the Mavericks and was turned down: “Ten months after he was named the NBA’s 2011 Sixth Man of the Year, Odom has had the worst season of his career, averaging 7.2 points and 4.4 rebounds while shooting 35.1 percent. His commitment also has been questioned: Odom sought a buyout from the Mavericks last month, but was rebuffed by owner Mark Cuban and general manager Donnie Nelson, a league source said. Yet, with a little more than a month to go before the playoffs, the Mavericks remain hopeful Odom will get on track and help strengthen their bench as they try to defend their title – the precise reason they acquired him from the Los Angeles Lakers before the start of the season. [...] Publicly, at least, Odom says he’s happy to be with the Mavs and he and his wife, Khloe Kardashian, have enjoyed living in Dallas. The couple’s reality TV show, ‘Khloe & Lamar’ has continued, though Odom has wondered if the show was a distraction to the Lakers last season. ‘I appreciate the time in the spotlight because for a lot of us there is going to be a time when it’s over,’ Odom said. ‘There is going to be a time when the person that asks for your autograph is going to ask somebody else.’ Mavs officials have been largely supportive of Odom during his struggles. Cuban barked at him during one game for not running the floor, but Cuban has barked at nearly every player on the roster, at some point. ‘You’re comfortable because it’s never too personal,’ Odom said. ‘I’ve only been here for so long that it can’t be bad. It is what is. It’s a working relationship.’”

    They better be able to flip that big contract of his for someone who truly cares about earning his money in the offseason.

  • Stephanie Lopéz

    Mark Cuban worse mistake was to let Tyson Chandler go (+ JJ, Caron, Corey) whatever he does, can’t be any worse..if Lamar wants to leave..


    Did you have to start the “ur momma” stuff? You know I don’t want to talk bad at your momma. She’s always so good to me when I see her…she trust me enough to go bareback. Afterwards during pillow talk she tells me how you’re doing in school and how she wants to leave your dad now that they’re in the “empty nester” stage of their relationship. Good stuff. Anyways, good luck NM30. ;)

  • RunNGun

    Give the guy a buyout. LOL He can’t go back to the LAkers anyway. Send him packing the Knicks. Make it happen, Cuban!

  • http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=sook IAMORANGE4EVER

    Yo NM30, click my name. Urban Dictionary has defined “sook” as an Australian slang term used to indicate another person is soft, easily upset, or just a plain pu/ssy.

    A sook? is that some Dr. Seussian type sh!t? like a lorax or some other small furry creature? While were on the topic wtf is common speak? sounds like some sh!t from middle earth so trolls can communicate with elves and barter chain-mail for enchanted broadswords…..

  • http://slamonline.com YKnot

    Where I come from nobody says sook? Common speak? And by the way when Macdonalds starts hiring doctoral candidates such as myself I’ll be sure to inquire. Clown!

    Lamar Odom is the Drake of the NBA.

  • abaci

    Too bad he can’t just buckle down and play hard. way to emotional for his own good.

  • Otis

    In any other line of work he’d just get fired. Seriously. Imagine having to pay someone millions of dollars a year to moan and complain about how much he hates his job. Also, “sook” is an excellent word.

  • http://slamonline house

    I think Orange wants every player to play for NYK, so lets just call them the New York Basketball Association from now on huh?

  • bike

    Sookie is urban slang for a woman who is a pu#sy. Which also happens to be an oxymoron.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    ^ As opposed to a woman with a huge, gaping, destroyed, p*ssy being known as a Snookie? Sorry, gross I know, but couldn’t resist.


    Not true at all @house.

    DON’T BUY OUT HIS CONTRACT, MAVS! MAKE HIM WORK FOR HIS MONEY! HE is the one that beat on his chest in front of Kupchak and basically DEMANDING a trade after his name allegedly came up in trade talks, but were rescinded. He thought he was proving a point. NOW, it’s time for the MAVS and the NBA to PROVE THEIR POINT. Hold him to his contract and make his a**work!!!!

  • Genuine

    I can just imagine that it was his ‘wifey’ that told him to go stand up to Kupchak and DEMAND a trade. I really can’t see Odom doing that otherwise. Be careful what you ask for. The grass is not always greener on the other side. HaHAAAAAA!!!!!

  • Genuine

    Lazy scrub. But he’s thinking smartly, really. He had BETTER hang on to that KarTrashian fortune, because he’s on slippery slopes in the NBA.

  • sandy

    I love Lamar, give him a tme, he ia a great player amd 100 % good guy..Go Lamer, we are here for you…….

  • mikeD

    Are all ex-lakers this uppity? First Fisher, now odom….

  • Greg

    I wish he would get the hell out of Dallas!!! He is lazy and not good for the team. I think team chemistry is hurting because of him!!!

  • Kate

    Why does he think any other time wants him? He is playing like crap, hes weak in the head!! He should be kissing Cubans feet!


    REALLY! Odom needs to F’N get his mind right. Mavs gave him a chance when no one else wanted him and with this pathetic run this season YEAH RIGHT NY will be calling! he wishes!

  • Mike Hunt

    He and his wife are most likely trying desperately to get a buyout so they can try to hook up with Lebron in Miami. Odom just has to come to the conclusion that he’s basically just a worker and really shouldn’t be thinking he’s some kind of star. He and his wife are two of a kind. Its obvious why the Lakers dumped his services. He thought he was bigger than the Lakers and Kobe. No way Lebron and his crew what this guy and his wife in Miami.

  • in

    Big baby lamar is crap. He is the biggest kid in the game. Send him to a sorry ass team and see if he likes that.
