Lamar Odom loves L.A. and L.A. love Lamar. Let’s just hope we can get him re-signed and begin our dynasty.
L.A. Times: There has been no movement in negotiations between the Lakers and free-agent forward Lamar Odom.
Odom, who made $14.1 million last season, is asking for $10 million per year in a new contact. Los Angeles doesn’t appear willing to grant his request, especially with their payroll increasing.
“There’s really nothing to report,” said a source.
If the Lakers don’t re-sign Odom, there only spending tool is the biannual exception, an offer of a two-year contract starting at $1.99 million.
“I hope so,” Kobe Bryant said of Odom returning. “He better be.”
