Lakers Rumors: Lamar Odom still wants to be a Laker

Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder, Game 6

According to reports, Lamar Odom is currently going through some trying times, yet his intention is still to return to the Los Angeles Lakers.

According to Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York, a source close to Odom in his native New York says that the former Sixth Man of the Year still wants to come back to his old team:

The problem at this point is whether the Lakers still want Odom.

Mitch Kupchak was said to have met with LO back in July, yet it seems nothing has come from that meeting. It appears that the Lakers have moved on from Odom, and if the reports about Lamar are true, it seems unlikely that the Lakers would want to get involved with the two-time champion at this point in time.
