Report: Odom to train at Knicks facility, could play summer league
Remember how the Knicks signed Lamar Odom right at the end of the season? He'll be working out at their facility starting on Monday.
Lamar Odom will begin working out at the New York Knicks' training facility on Monday, according to the New York Post's Marc Berman. Knicks president Phil Jackson signed Odom on the last day of the regular season, but his contract for next year is not guaranteed. He could play on New York's summer league team, according to the Post.
“He’s coming to town this week,” Jackson said in his first comments on Odom. “We know he’s a really good basketball player.
“He wants to put himself back together, and he has a chance to do that by having the whole summer to work at it and getting himself back in basketball condition to play. He told me that’s what he wants to do. Having a relationship with him. It’s a pretty good risk-reward situation for us.’’
The 34-year-old forward enjoyed some of the best years of his career playing for Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers. It's impossible to know how much he has left to offer the Knicks, but in the past he's been a great fit in the triangle offense.
