Lakers Withdraw Offer To Odom
« on: July 15, 2009, 10:11:09 AM »
Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss, upset that free-agent forward Lamar Odom(notes) has yet to respond to the team's contract offer, has withdrawn the proposal, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Times reported that the Lakers offered Odom his choice of a three-year, $30 million contract or a four-year, $36 million deal. Odom reportedly is seeking a contract closer in value to five years, $50 million.

Buss also isn't happy Odom's agent, Jeff Schwartz, has negotiated more extensively with the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat than the Lakers, the Times reported.

Lakers spokesman John Black said talks could still resume in the future.


 :-X...doesn't sound final but this could really hurt LA

Yeah we'll see what happens. If they dont go after someone else, and basically lost Odom/ Ariza for Artest....i think they got worse.

Depending on a unpredictable nutjob and an up-and-down injury-prone inexperienced big is not a good thing if you want to repeat

those close to Odom say he wanted to accept the offer but his agent was being a dickhead

they want 5 years  $50 million   :laugh:

you don't give 5 years to someone unless they are superstar calibur

they offered 3 years $30 million..... turned it down

then they offered 4 years  $36  ($9 a year).... turned it down

so now the only teams that can offer him anything are Miami and Dallas

5 years... $36 million  :laugh:

so basically the Lakers called his bluff.... they offered him the most and he declined

what an idiot... have fun in shitty Texas  :-X

you never know.... I'm just sayin what the LA Times said

"Lamar, trust me buddy"  who the fuck knows what these guys are thinking?

they're retarded to turn down $30 over 3  and look for $50 over 5  in this economy

pure stupidity

If LA don't get Odom back next year, It's also partly because they also banking on Bynum stepping up his game.
The Odom spot will then be replaced w/Bynum & the Nut (Artest) sharing the dirty work.

That said, Lamar man up boy, It's LA or nuthin'...lol
