Report: Golden State Warriors Interested in Signing Lamar Odom

According to the Contra Costa Times, the Warriors would welcome Lamar Odom with open arms next season, but no one should be holding their breath: “It’s a long shot. He would probably have to take less money and turn down a chance to be on a contender. But the Warriors have an eye for Lamar Odom to fill out their starting lineup next season. File it under the would-be-nice list (Not exactly on the what-are-you-smoking list that was once topped by Dwight Howard hopes). The Warriors have four spots in their starting lineup, on paper, set for next season. Stephen Curry is the point guard. Klay Thompson is the shooting guard. David Lee is the power forward and Andrew Bogut is the center. It would take something major for those four not to be starters next season. That leaves the small forward position as the only place in the starting lineup semi-available for upgrading. Lamar Odom would be an upgrade of the current quartet of Dorell Wright, Dominic McGuire, Richard Jefferson and Brandon Rush. Mostly because Odom provides what they don’t. Even with this atrocious season he’s had, Odom’s career averages are 14.6 points on 46.5 percent shooting with 8.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists. The Warriors would loooooooooove that kind of production at small forward. Multiple team sources told me Odom would be a good fit. He’s someone on their radar.”

    Man, I didn’t even think about this. This could be a great signing, but I’m not holding my breath. I’m not a big fan of LO or anything but he’s a good player, and he seems like a decent guy too. People must forget about all the stuff that has happened to him since the start of the season. People (two?) dying, right? I don’t remember it all, but he got traded from the LAkers who he won two championships with (that sucks!), and at least one person he knew died, and he is “depressed”. Makes sense to me. I hope he can overcome his struggles, and return to form. And if the Warriors can sign him then, I would go crazy. Either way, if Bogut, Lee, and Curry are all healthy next year we SHOULD make the playoffs. Klay Thompson is gonna be good too… just saying.

    Blazers looked sick closing out gstate. Cant help but notice how well Matthews batum felton and Crawford work as a unit. Nolan Smith is also real crafty.

  • Nevermind

    It amazes me that some pro’s, regardless or sport, cant be professional or give it their all for the 6-12 years they last in pro sports. So gifted and the world is in their hands but some blow it. After there short tenure is up, they have the rest of their lives to be a has been. No one will really care about Lamar in 3 or 4 years because he will be a has been. Nothing personal but thats star is fading in his career.
