The [Odom] wait could be over Tuesday

Alongside the ESPN article saying this should be over “in the next few days,” it looks like others are reporting the same thing. This should all be over by Tuesday.

O.C. Register: John Ireland reportedly said on ESPN 710 radio this morning that Lamar Odom would sign with the Lakers sometime in the next couple of days. Ditto the info coming from the Miami Herald, which echoes the time frame I got from the conversations I had over the weekend. The wait could be over Tuesday.

Additionally, here is what the Miami Herald had to say…

Miami Herald: This situation appears to be coming to a head within the next 24-48 hours. But even as this episode drags on, you have to wonder what happens with the Heat if Odom stays with the Lakers. If Plan L.O. goes up in smoke, is there a Plan B?

    I’ll believe it when I see it….This has taken so many turns and twist who knows what might happen next…Stay tune

  • Al the Laker fan you should meet

    Hmmm well here we go LA I can see it going either way now. I hope he stays in LA.

    Lets hope he stays, if not w/e because im sick of these dramas between odom.

  • purple and gold for life

    If he stays he better not be inconsisten anymore. Especially considering how much of a fuss he has been putting up to resign with the Lakers. I’m tired of his missed left handed layups. Isn’t he left handed by the way?

  • Lamar

    i want this lame ish to end!!!

  • hihfiah

    well i hope he re-signs cuz i dont think the lakers could afford to sign another player like odom, so if he goes to the heat then we literally lose a player, so even i f odom is inconsistent and sometimes suck at games, he can rebound and thats a plus besides bynum will get healthy next season and odom roll in the lakers will become more insignificant and trust me odom plays better as a 3rd 4th scorin option.

  • jeremy

    John Ireland is a good source of information re: the Lakers. But like everyone else, ill believe it when i see it. I dont know if im gnna ba ble to sleep tonite…lol

    The problem with that is that we do have the two lamest people on that list. And we could actually use Lamar. Also the only thing lame about not signong Lamar is that Buss isnt going to replace him with anything decent, he will just pocket the cash and try to get by. So hopefully we do sign him. But yeah yeah FUKKKKKK Sasha and Luke!

  • Robert

    Either way, we can at least have 1 or 2 months of Summer to NOT THINK about what’s going to happen with the Lakers, and LO.

    Hooray! We can return to talking about useless things like Ron Artest’s clothing habits.

    can only assume you are joking? he is pretty much the MOST left handed player in the league

    Do you know that feeling when your significant other is tickling you? It’s so sensual and exciting being tickle by your love ones. Well with me, I would only feel that way for the first few minutes but if it prolong then I would be totally turn off and piss off. This is how I feel about this whole thing with Lamar. A foreplay that has gone on too long. I can’t concentrate on enjoy the Championship. I can’t plan to go on any kind of a decent vacation this summer. I finally forced to say “The Hell with it” and booked my vacation last week to go in two weeks. Do you know what kind of deal I got, NONE. A lot of us are scambling to get nickles and dimes for tickets to see them next year. And here Lamar is piss off and holding out on us because he can’t live with 36 MILLION. STOP TORTURING US!!!! We have supported you in every way for many years now. Enough, be done with it.

    If Lamar goes, i think a good option would be to sign Marvin Williams, not as versatile, but similiar in that he can play both forward spots, very athletic, and is yet to fulfill his potential (sounds like lamar) and is pretty good at defense. What do you guys think? He is also a lot younger and was taken #2 over all for a reason

  • Zen and Tonic

    Come back home LO! Get this done and we can spend the rest of the summer laughing while the Heat scrambles…

    kwame brown was drafted 1st overall for a reason too u know…

  • xtro

    u want more rings? u know where you need to go, LO.

  • THELAKERSWON09

    If you leave no one will ever hear you’re name again lamar odom.

  • THELAKERSWON09

    It was so fu-cking dumb offering him less though… wtf buss?!

  • LakersFirst

    With or Without LO, the Lakers will be fine! I’m not worried either way.

  • TonyF

    Same hype different hour. Like LO’s game, different every hour.

  • http://sirtoken@aol.com Steve in vegas

    Excellent, I hope Dr. Buss offered him $1 dollar more than the Heat after taxes factored in! That way Odumb’s agent can brag how he held out for a better deal. Take that big ole commission of 10cents extra to the bank.

  • Please Leave LA Lamar

    Give Tim Thomas the vet min and move on. very comparable to LO.

  • lakergreg

    If Odom stays with the Lakers but has to sign for less than he was offered a week or two ago, or if he has to sign with Miami because the Lakers reduced their offer from earlier, then ODOM NEEDS TO FIRE HIS AGENT.

    At the same time, Ariza needs to FIRE HIS AGENT.

    They both screwed with Dr. Buss and, one way or another, they’ve each paid the price.

  • Mitch4Pres

    i isnt believing shiit untill he signs on the dotted line

  • http://Firefox Fdog

    Dr. Buss used his poker experience and will get Odom to sign for less money than what was initially offered….Frickin’ brilliant! The Lakers get their man, save a little on luxury tax and make LO’s agent look like an A-hole. You gotta love it…

  • gmacc

    Isnt’t this the same thing we heard/read last week? “…could be over”! I want him to stay, but please stop giving this so much attention where nothing is happening! Why not just stop reporting “could be’s” and wait til something ACTUALLY happens!!! Lakers should say “here it is! Take it or leave it!” and if takes it gr8, if not move on and focus on finding or replacement! It’s just like dealing with a child. Stop giving him attention he doesn’t deserve and he’ll stop acting up! SIGN OR KICK ROCKS L.O.! Go 2 Miami and barely make the playoffs or stay in L.A. and have a gr8 chance @ another title! Seems like a no-brainer to me! Then again, i am just a working man who doesn’t make millions of dollars a year to do something I “LOVE”!!!

  • gmacc

    …sorry i meant “something i ‘SUPPOSEDLY’ Love”…cuz if i loved it i would make da decision based mostly on winning and not on acting like i can’t live off 9 mil a year! Hit the strrets Buss there’s plenty of players in on the blacktop than can give you what Lamr gives you 4 half what he wants! LMAO

  • http://iklklkl aaron24

    I agree a million dollars is a lot for a lot of people. Compare this people goes to college and becomes an engineer makes couple hundred thousands a year and odom is making more than 10 times as much in 6 month

  • chenk

    LO GOT OWNED DURING THIS NEGOTIATION PROCESS. LAKERS SHOULD HAVE REDUCED IT TO MLE (SAME AS HEAT) + $1. The price is still too high for player like him.

  • EVan T

    ARE ARIZA AND ODOM’S AGENTS RELATED?

  • Victor

    Get this done! Either get odom or not, we need to move on. Its taking too much time already.

    LO is becoming the Brett Favre of Basketball. Sign with somebody already.
