Good news, Los Angeles fans: Lamar Odom might be headed back to La La Land! Er, let us clarify that. He might be headed back to L.A. to play for the Clippers—the team that drafted him all the way back in 1999—not the Lakers.
According to a new report, the Clips are apparently interested in trying to make a deal with the Dallas Mavericks, who still hold the rights to Odom, before Friday when Mark Cuban can buy out the final year of Odom's contract for $2.4 million. The only problem? In order to take on Odom's contract and get him back to Los Angeles, the Clippers would likely need to find a third team willing to get involved in the trade with the Mavericks and take on the contract of Mo Williams. And, that third team could end up being the Lakers, who are said to be interested in Williams and willing to use the trade exception that they received from the Mavs last year in a trade for Odom in order to get him.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave. Looks like Khloe Kardashian might get her wish after all.
