Lamar Odom Signs Contract With Team In Spanish Basketball League

Via ESPN

Lamar Odom is on the verge of launching his basketball comeback in Spain, as the 34-year-old has reached an agreement with Laboral Kutxa.

The club announced that the former Los Angeles Lakers forward has a two-month contract, which includes an option to extend the deal for the remainder of the season, to fill a roster spot that opened up because of injury.

Such deals typically contain out clauses that allow established veterans such as Odom to return to the NBA if the opportunity arises, but sources told ESPN.com on Monday that Odom’s plan is to play out the rest of this season in Spain before determining whether to attempt an NBA comeback.

Odom could make his debut Saturday against Valladolid. Laboral Kutxa is ninth in the 18-team Spanish league and last in its Euroleague group.

Other current NBA standouts who have played for Laboral Kutxa — long known as Tau Ceramica — include Goran Dragic, Luis Scola, Jose Calderon and Tiago Splitter.

Hopefully Lamar can get is act together over in Spain. They don’t smoke crack there, do they?
