  • Re-Signing Lamar Odom Is Not Optional - Silver Screen and Roll
    Why the Lakers should re-sign Lamar Odom, and why Laker fans have a right to care.
  • Lamar Odom update and some other quick hits | Lakers Blog | Los Angeles Times
    The O.C. Register's Janis Carr recently yapped with Lakers Assistant General Manager Ronnie Lester about the team's ongoing talks with Lamar Odom. Carr says Lester informed her that LO's offer has been bumped "a little north of $8 million." More or less what people have bandied about as the "magic number," so to speak. Lester also expressed confidence a deal could go down next week.
  • SHELBURNE: Wrong time for Odom to go free - LA Daily News
    In this week's edition of "While you were off winning an NBA championship last season," also known as the weekly "How the economic meltdown is affecting professional sports" report, versatile Lakers free agent forward Lamar Odom sits team-less and contract- less on July 12 trying to figure out how to swallow a rather large pay cut after the most successful season of his professional career. Meanwhile, the considerably less-accomplished free agent forward Paul Millsap inks an offer sheet with Portland that will pay him $32 million over the next four seasons. Besides a championship ring, talent-gap and experience, what's the difference between them? Age. Millsap is 24. Odom will 30 later this year.
    (You have to feel for Lamar.  [As much as you can for a millionaire.]  Seeing Paul Millsap get $8 Mill and Varajeo's potentially $10 Mill per deal has got to sting.  They aren't half the player Lamar is.  Wrong time, wrong place for LO.)
  • Lakers Win Again, Start 2-0 in Vegas at Lakers.com BasketBlog
    Adam Morrison’s 22 points paced L.A. in its second Summer League win in as many tries as the Lakers defeated Cleveland 88-82 on Saturday afternoon in Las Vegas. A day after scoring 24 points against Toronto, Morrison converted 8-of-16 field goals - including 4-of-6 from downtown - and pitched in four rebounds with three assists against the Cavs.
  • Adam Morrison Has Plenty to Prove -- NBA FanHouse
    The last time we saw Adam Morrison, he donned civilian clothes celebrating the Lakers' NBA Finals victory over the Orlando Magic. It was an awkward scene because Morrison had little to do with the title. Moreover, the player who accompanied him to Los Angeles from Charlotte, Shannon Brown, played a significant reserve role while the former No. 3 pick filled the final seat on the bench, left off the playoff roster. With one year left on his rookie deal, Morrison is trying to use 2009-10 to prove he is a capable NBA player, a major question the past few years.
