Lamar Odom is set re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to a source for Us Weekly.
Odom met with Clippers management for two hours on Friday according to Yahoo! Sports, and we're wondering if there was a bidding war to get him back on the basketball court, as he was reportedly meeting with Lakers execs last month. Though Lamar started off with the Los Angeles Clippers in 1999 (he played with them until 2003), he was with the Lakers from 2004-2011. He came back to the Clippers for the 2012-2013 season after playing with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011.
"It was the best deal and he's happy to go back," an insider tells Us Weekly. Another source added, "Lamar is training and in good shape." So what about his alleged substance abuse problems? "The teams aren't concerned about the drug use," one of the sources tells Us. "If he stays mentally focused he can help [to] win games."
