Miami the Favorites to Land Odom?

by July 27, 2009

Sources tell Yahoo! that he’s leaning towards accepting a deal with the Heat, and D-Wade is apparently in L.A. to help cement the deal: “Lamar Odom is leaning strongly toward accepting the Miami Heat’s contract offer and leaving the Los Angeles Lakers, multiple sources with knowledge of the talks said. Odom has not reached a final decision, the sources said, but there is growing belief he will ultimately return to the Heat unless the Lakers improve their current offer. ‘It’s close, but it’s not done,’ said one source.”
