NBA News: New York Knicks Officially Sign Forward Lamar Odom

The New York Knicks have officially decided to bring in two-time NBA champion Lamar Odom for the rest of the season according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News:

The move to sign Odom is an interesting one to say the least. Many believe Odom’s basketball career was over after no NBA team signed him earlier in the season and his short stint in Spain didn’t go as planned.

It remains to be seen whether Odom has anything left in the tank after an exhausting year filled with controversy. Odom was constantly surrounded and followed by paparazzi while dealing with rumors of drug use and a pending divorce with reality star Khloe Kardashian.

Odom’s contract with the Knicks is reportedly a two-year deal with the second year non-guaranteed according to Bleacher Report’s Howard Beck:

With Phil Jackson taking control of the Knicks, the former Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls head coach wants familiar faces in New York to help change the culture. The consensus as of right now is that Jackson may attempt to resurrect the triangle offense in New York while bringing in players like Odom to run it.

    Wow but why???LO is old and coming off drug problems oh well best of luck.

      Phil knows what it takes to win and what kind of role players to have on a team in order for it to win.. that’s the reason why, and that’s the reason he is winningest of all…. people cannot understand that….

      This is a decisive move… as Odom will have longer time before next season to familirize himself with the players that Phil is going to retain…. and allows for Phil to strategize early. Odom is also an excellent compliment to Melo as he doenst need the ball in his hands to be effective.

    It’s a nice gesture from Phil.Maybe MWP will be back also?

    Lamar better see this as a gift from god! if it wasn’t for Phil, everyone knows his career was over. I’m pulling for him though… still.

    Not Lakers news. Moving on.

    When Phil fails horribly with the Knicks, Laker fans will be relieved that we didn’t bring him back. He is an over-rated, mind-bender that happened to inherit the 2 greatest players of all time in their primes. I don’t deny that he is a talented coach, but definitely far from the savior that so many fans believe him to be
