Looks like things just got real for Lamar Odom and the future of his career.
According to TMZ, the L.A. Clippers refused to re-sign the NBA star in light of his drug abuse scandal. Instead, the team picked up former L.A. Laker forward Antawn Jamison to complete the roster.
NBA sources tell TMZ, team officials really wanted to re-sign Lamar over the summer after he performed well last season, but he was nearly impossible to reach … and they couldn’t make progress on contract discussions.
We’re told the Clippers were STILL interested despite Lamar’s flaky behavior, but after news broke about the NBA star’s issues with drug addiction … the team closed the book on a new deal, permanently.
As we reported earlier, Odom and his wife Khloe Kardsahian are currently separated due to an alleged crack cocaine addiction. He’s yet to confirm or deny the reports.
