Lamar Odom’s top choice reportedly is Knicks
Could the Kardashians be taking New York for a second time? According to a report from Ian Begley, Lamar Odom’s top choice in free agency would be to join the Knicks.
Begley reports that Odom’s priority is to be comfortable, and he feels he can be in New York.
The problem for the Queens native is that he’s still on the Mavericks’ roster and they are trying to trade him before June 29. Any team that has him on their roster at that date owes him $2.4 million guaranteed next season.
If Dallas is unable to trade Odom, they are likely to waive him, at which point he could be claimed or become a free agent.
Though Odom seems interested in signing with the Knicks, they may not want him. The Lakers could have some interest given that several of his former teammates would welcome him back, but the decision would be up to the front office. We do know that scenario would be pleasing to his wife.
