Lamar Odom is having an interesting week. First let’s start with the positive, Odom has been offered a one-year, Veteran’s minimum deal ($1.4 million) to re-sign with the Clippers. Initially the clippers were looking at Antwan Jamison but when Doc Rivers heard about Lamar Odom’s locker room influence he wanted him back.

LO also won’t be prosecuted for that paparazzi attack last month. Lamar flipped out on a Hollywood street last month and destroyed the camera man’s property after the guy allegedly asked Lamar if the rumors of him cheating on Khloe were true.
Odom has agreed to pay for breaking the snapper’s gear in the July 10 rampage. So we’re told the City Attorney will hold an office hearing — an alternative to a prosecution — in which Lamar and the photog will have a chit chat with the hearing officer about rights and responsibilities … and that’s about it.
And while that’s happening, the woman who claimed to have had a six-week relationship with LO that ended when Khloe came busting into the hotel room where she and Lamar were ummm… chilling, also claims that she took and passed a lie detector test:
“I was under the impression that he had left Khloe … he acted completely available and we definitely had a mutual attraction,” the comely counselor told the magazine. “After we had sex, Lamar stayed the night with me; the next day we went back to the Roosevelt. “I stayed there with him for the next couple of nights.” She told the magazine she had a tense run-in with Khloe, when the former hostess of The X Factor showed up to the room she was sharing with Lamar at the Vagabond Inn on July 13. “The whole scene was so frightening — and I couldn’t understand why we were hiding, because he made it clear that he didn’t want to be with her!” “She’s investigated my loved ones, and she personally tried to attack me,” Polina said. “I can’t even go home, because I’m scared that something bad will happen.
