Sports Whispers: This Roster is Full: Clippers Sign Antawn JamisonAntawn Jameson; Will Not Re-Sign Lamar Odom
Lamar Odom will remain a free agent because the L.A. Clippers refused to re-sign him in light of his abuse of drugs, including crack cocaine.
Team officials 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.
The Clippers were still interested despite his recent behavior, but after news broke about his drug addiction, the team closed the book on a new deal, permanently.
Former L.A. Laker forward Antawn Jamison has since struck an agreement with the Clip Show, and the team’s roster is now full, at least with the Clippers.
