After the most disappointing season of his NBA career, Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom is returning to where it all started for him professionally: Los Angeles.
RumorFix has learned that Lamar and Khloe will be moving back to LA permanently after the former NBA “Sixth Man of the Year” inked a deal with that other Los Angeles basketball team: The Clippers. Odom was introduced by the team on Monday as their newest off-season acquisition.
The signing comes on the heels of Odom’s worst statistical season ever, in a turbulent run with the Dallas Mavericks. The star’s season ended early when Dallas executives and coaches decided to bench the baller permanently because of his lackluster play; play brought on by off-court problems and Odom’s depression with having been abruptly traded to the team by the Los Angeles Lakers.
“There’s a lot of things I want to make right. I know what kind of player I am and I just want to get back to that level. I told coach that I’m 100 percent in for whatever he needs and wants to get done. I’ll be his soldier,” Odom tells ESPN.
Odom, 32, was drafted by the Clippers 13 years ago where he played for four years before stints with the Miami Heat, Lakers and Mavericks.
