Here is a small tidbit about the talks between Mitch and Odom’s agent.
Pasadena Star News: The dialogue between them has been steady ever since, according to Lakers spokesman John Black, although Black did not classify their communication as “negotiations.”
“I wouldn’t say that, no,” Black said. “Basically Jeff and Mitch continue to stay in touch, pretty much on a daily basis.”
A recent report indicated that talks between the Lakers and Odom have heated up in recent days, although Black stopped short of saying that.
“They’re continuing to talk,” Black said. “But I wouldn’t say anything significant has come from it.”
