Lamar Odom Signs Contract To Play Ball In Spain

Is Lamar Odom something like the cat with 9 lives, or what?! After alleged drug and alcohol addictions, people are still willing to give the brother a chance. According to ESPN, Laboral Kutxa, a Spanish basketball team, announced that they’ve reached an agreement with the 34 year old former Laker. Odom has signed a two month contract with the option to extend it to the remainder of the season.

He comes to the team filling a roster spot that opened due to an injury.

ESPN reports that these types of deals usually contain clauses that leave room for veterans to return to the NBA if the opportunity presents itself. But sources claim Lamar’s plan is to play out the entire season before determining whether or not he wants to come back to the NBA.

Odom could make his Laboral Kutxa debut as early as this Saturday against Valladolid. Laboral Kutxa is ninth in the 18 team Spanish league and last in the Euroleague group.

Laboral president, Josean Querejeta said in a statement, “We’re very happy to have signed a very important player who has had a long and fruitful career in the NBA. We’ve worked very hard over the last couple of days to make this happen, we felt we needed a boost and had to break the collective cloud that has been hanging over us over the last while so we could get back to winning.”

Lord knows we wish Lamar the best and hope he is able to find some type of peace and whatever healing he may need on the court, over there in Spain.

    good for him i hope this a step towards him getting better

    But is this what he really wants? It was a punch to his gut when he was no longer playing for the Lakers. That’s where he wants to be. It all started going downhill from there. Hopefully this opportunity won’t be blown.

    Maybe this is just what he needs. He is away from the spotlight, away from the Kardashians, and will hopefully refocus on his recovery and his career.
