One report claims that there is NO Odom deal on table at this point; despite reports from BSO.

JOG: I had several conversations today with people close to the Lakers, and asked each about the status of Lamar Odom.  Here’s what I learned:

–The best offer the Lakers had previously offered was Odom was for four years, $36 million.  But the fourth year was a team option, that the Lakers had to either exercise, or buy Lamar out for $3 million.  That means Odom turned down a guaranteed three year, $30 million contract.

That offer is no longer on the table, nor is any offer from the Lakers. I’m told that if Lamar called the team today and said he would accept these terms, he would most likely be told that the offer is no longer available.  Again, this is my opinion based on multiple conversations.  I have not spoken directly to Mitch Kupchak or Jerry Buss.  If Lamar and Dr. Buss got together over dinner, maybe that original offer could resurface, but I’m told that’s highly unlikely.

The common opinion seems to be that the Lakers made Odom an offer that was far above market value, and he turned it down.  It’s my feeling that the team no longer thinks he’s worth a guaranteed $30 million in the current market.  Unless somebody has a change of heart, Lamar most likely will have to take less to come back to the Lakers.

We had Jalen Rose on the show Wednesday, and he says that’s exactly the way this is likely to play out.  Jalen thinks the Lakers won’t offer Lamar the original $10 million a year, but he will settle for less and return to LA.  Under this scenario, his mistake of not taking the original offer could cost him millions.  Of course, if he signs with another team, the most he’s likely to get paid is the full mid-level exception of around $6 million a year.  Jalen suggested that the new offer would probably be “around seven or eight million.”

  • JFK-analysis-at-TLN

    this is just crazy…John Ireland does not know about the meeting in Vegas between Lakers and Odon (he said it in the Blog…he also made it clear that what he was saying was just his OPINION….
    could BSO be right- not likely..but we don’t know..

    what we do know is that we are tired of all this crap…..

  • LakeShow4Life

    This dother clucking smit is getting on my nerves. I don’t even care anymore.. the Lake Show will still be champions next year with or without Odom. I don’t give a spam about these flitch a.z.z. updates.

    Like I said, I have known Robert Littal for personally for a long long time. He has always been credible and I have his back…..I am not saying that you all to have to believe me, all I am saying is that he has always been credible and there are chances that Ireland and Bucher are going to look really bad in the morning. Lamar will be a Laker…period. I’m sticking by Robert and BSO.

  • Daniel

    Never trust a “BREAKING NEWS” that ends in a question mark. You guys are ridiculous…stop announcing “BREAKING NEWS” if you have to add a question mark after it – just report as is: “RUMOR”

  • taxwinter

    what is this rumor that Odom will join Ariza in houston?

  • http://deluxpro.com LakersBack2Back

    STOP POSTING RUMORS

  • ronin99

    I agree with everyone who isn’t happy. TLN is playing with everyone. Please post something to confirm whether he signed or not. RUMORS are for OLD LADIES and SMELLTICS!!!

  • taxwinter

    OMG…hehe anyway, hopefully LO will stop playing hard to get now, he should learn from Ariza’s case…he can transfer to other team but he cannot get the same opportunity …his stock value will for sure dive down if he will play somewhere else..

  • Odom_fuc-kin_bia-tch!

    TLN is putting these fake news to generate traffic on the site. Thus making $$$$.
    old tactic.

  • Victor

    TLN is a nice blog for the laker fans.. And I respect whats in it. But these recent postings of UNRELIABLE AND UNVERIFIED “they said.. we heard.. we learned.. they posted..” freakin heresays pisses me off big time. Saying that TLN is a filter site is a sh!tty excuse. BE PROFESSIONALS. You can always label every unverified sh!t as: ‘RUMOR’ not BREAKING NEWS. Work it. Please. Stop pissin on your blog TLN.
