Knicks sign Odom for remainder of season
NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Knicks have signed former NBA champion Lamar Odom, who was out of the league this season.
The move gives new president Phil Jackson an offseason to look at the versatile forward who thrived in his system. Odom helped the Los Angeles Lakers win NBA titles in 2009 and 2010, and was the Sixth Man of the Year in 2011, Jackson's final season as coach.
But Odom has never captured that success again. He last played in the NBA with the Clippers in 2012-13, averaging 4.0 points in about 20 minutes per game, and appeared in two games for a team in Spain this season.
Good for him I guess? Only thing that's weird is... The Knicks signed him the day of their last game, he was listed on the NBA.com roster, and got an Inactive. Only thing is, their season ended today. Weird? Maybe Phil was locking him up for next season.. Either way, best hopes to him.
