Lamar Odom is finally returning to the Dallas Mavericks after tending to “a family emergency” but before he officially rejoins the team, Lam lam is going to play in the D League for a game with the Cuban owned Texas Legends to get his legs back under him after missing a week with the team.
Odom will do two private workouts Friday with Mavs consultant Tim Grgurich, who was flown in this week specifically to help Odom get ready for his return to the Mavs, according to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein. Odom will join the Legends for their shootaround Saturday morning.
I guess Mark Cuban doesn’t want to assist another team by waiving LO but it’s crystal clear that there were NO winners in this trade. I can’t see either party trying to make this a go beyond this season. My biggest hang up about Lamar has always been that once he climbs in his feelings, it’s almost impossible to get him to be productive on the basketball court. It was like that when he was with the Clippers, there were obviously moments like that when he was apart of the Lakers but this season has probably been the best example.
