Yahoo! Sports: Dwyane Wade spent much of his rookie season picking Lamar Odom’s(notes) brain on all aspects of the NBA game, everything from playing tips to travel advice.
He hopes those chats start again soon.
The Miami Heat, who traded Odom to the Los Angeles Lakers five years ago in the trade that brought Shaquille O’Neal(notes) to South Florida, have made the free agent forward an offer to return and help Wade once again. The team has not revealed terms of the offer, although it’s believed to be a five-year package that could be worth around $35 million.
“I want Lamar to do what’s best for him and his family because we love him as family, but on the other hand, we want him back home, to come home,” Wade said Friday in a telephone interview. “His house is still there. It’d be exciting to see what happens.”
