Lamar Odom meets with Clippers’ Doc Rivers

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.
