Odom/Lakers Negotiations Hitting a Snag

Today, not so much: “Lakers owner Jerry Buss, who improved on his offer of $8 million a season to Odom, is getting frustrated and is thinking about pulling the deal off the table soon. Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak talked at halftime of a game between the Lakers and Clippers on Monday in Las Vegas at the summer league, saying that the talks with Odom left him ‘not as hopeful as I was on Friday.’ When asked why, Kupchak said, ‘Just a feeling you get. Right now, I’m not sure we’re on the same page.'”
