Lamar Odom back in NBA?

17 November 2013 / 2 years 11 months ago

Lamar Odom is said to be in the final stages of negotiations to bring him back to the NBA with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The star, whose four-year marriage to Khloé Kardashian has been rocked by allegations he cheated on her and has been battling an addiction to crack cocaine, is reportedly in the final stages of negotiations to bring him back to the Los Angeles Clippers.

A source told E! News that the 33-year-old met with head coach Doc Rivers and Clippers GM Gary Sacks yesterday (15.11.13) and said the deal was "done."

It has been reported that the star had been working out to make his way back to the court and has been sober for a month.

A source said last month: "He is taking steps to get himself back on track."

The road to Lamar's NBA comeback has not been without struggle. The 14-year veteran, who previously played for the Clippers during the 2012-2013 season, was arrested for a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) on August 30 and later pleaded not guilty.

At the time of Lamar's arrest, 29-year-old Khloé and the rest of the Kardashian family had been urging him to seek treatment.

The couple have since been attending counselling sessions and are "using it as a forum to talk through all of their issues"

A source added: "Khloé has been very, very hurt by everything. There is a lot about Lamar that she is just learning and if they have any chance of making this work, there is a lot they need to come to terms with."
