Lamar Odom – who has been taking a short break from basketball since his release from the Dallas Mavericks in April 2012 – was spotted with his son, Lamar Jr., and a friend as they picked up some cold beverages and snacks in New York City on Wednesday (June 20).
Looks like the former Los Angeles Laker and his reality TV star wife, Khloé Kardashian may be returning to the West Coast to live near family for awhile. Radaronline.com reported that the hoops star is in talks with his first NBA team – the LA Clippers – to return to the franchise for the upcoming season. A source close to Odom shared, “Lamar wants to return to Los Angeles and the Clippers want him. They just need to work out finances and contractual issues.”
The Khloé and Lamar couple have been wanting to have a baby for some time now and have been open about their struggles on their reality show.
“Khloé wants to be near her own family when she and Lamar start their family and this new job for him will make that all happen so easily,” the source added. “She was happy to move to Dallas and would move anywhere for Lamar, but having him on a team in LA is a dream come true.”
Odom has another child, Destiny, with his ex-girlfriend Liza Morales. The former couple had a third child, Jayden, that passed away as an infant from SIDS in 2006.View Slideshow »»
