This may be the back up plan IF they do not re-sign Odom, but there is interest in Shelden Williams.
L.A. Times: Because they are already over the salary cap, the Lakers have few options available to them if they don’t re-sign Lamar Odom.
They can sign a veteran forward for about $1 million. They also must decide by Aug. 1 whether to bring back seldom-used guard Sun Yue for $736,000 next season. The Lakers have also considered forward Shelden Williams.
