Lamar Odom Met With Clippers About Possible Return

Lamar Odom had a rough offseason with alleged drug use, consistent appearances in the tabloids and being charged with a DUI, but the 34-year-old forward met with Clippers officials for two hours on Friday, according to multiple reports. The L.A. Times reported that team execs said Odom “looked pretty good” and that he is “not heavy weight-wise”:

Free-agent forward Lamar Odom was at the Clippers’ practice facility on Friday afternoon, said NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

No deal was imminent between Odom and the Clippers, the executives said, but there is interest on both sides if Odom has gotten his personal life in order. Odom didn’t work out for the team, the executives said.

Odom talked with Clippers Coach Doc Rivers and some of his former teammates after the team’s practice, the executives said.

One executive said Odom “looked pretty good” and that he is “not heavy weight-wise” and is “talking like he really wants to play again.” [...]

If Odom does return, the NBA will look into his problems before signing off on a deal, the executives said.

    Doesn’t the NBA have something to say about this? No fine, no drug test but yet they fine J.R. Smith for a tweet… I suppose it’s because Odom isn’t under a contract but still.
