The Knicks announced Friday that they have waived former Laker Lamar Odom. The Knicks had added Odom to give him a chance at redemption late last season after hiring Phil Jackson as President of Basketball Operations.

The Knicks signed Odom to a multi-year deal in August. Odom has been at the center of controversy over the past year. Last summer he was arrested on DUI charges the same week rumors surfaced he was dealing with a significant drug problem. He plead no contest on the charges in December. He signed with a Spanish team in February but returned in March after an injury.

Odom, 34, played six seasons for Jackson in LA. The Knicks also announced they have re-signed former Thunder No. 11 pick Cole Aldrich.
