Clippers coach Doc Rivers met with Lamar Odom, who is currently
out of the NBA.
Rivers and Odom talked Friday at the team’s practice facility.
Odom averaged a career-low 4.0 points and 5.9 rebounds last season
with the franchise. He became a free agent last summer and wasn’t
signed by any team.
The Clippers have 14 players on their roster, leaving them one
short of the maximum of 15.
”I’ve always had interest in him,” Rivers said Saturday night
before the Clippers hosted the Nets. ”But honestly, it really
didn’t go much further than that.”
Rivers said he wanted to see how the 34-year-old forward looked
because he hadn’t see him since becoming Clippers coach last
”He looked like his weight was way down and he was in great
shape, but that doesn’t mean a lot,” the coach said. ”But that
was it for me.”
Odom was arrested on a DUI charge in August and there have been
reports of a tumultuous personal life in recent months. He is
married to reality star Khloe Kardashian.
