UPDATE: Eric Pincus of Hoopsworld chimed in, via Twitter, on the situation. It doesn’t sound like Spurs or Suns can even afford Odom:
- unimpressed by LAT article suggesting the Suns/Spurs would try to make salary cap room for Odom at $10 mil per
- suns would have to clear say $27 mil in salary – good luck there
- spurs need to clear some $22 million at least – those are conservative numbers – to open up room for Odom at $9 mil starting
Here is some Odom news…
L.A. Times: San Antonio and Phoenix are interested in trying to sign Odom. Both teams are trying to clear salary-cap space to see if they can get a deal done with Odom, who is looking for at least a four-year deal worth an average of $10 million a year. Suns Coach Alvin Gentry is familiar with Odom, having coached him when they were both with the Clippers from 2000 to 2003.
