Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom has signed a two-month contract with Spanish basketball club Baskonia, the club said on Tuesday.
Lamar Odom, 34, an NBA free agent who hasn’t played since finishing out last season with the Los Angeles Clippers, is filling a roster spot that opened up because of injury. Baskonia said the deal includes an option to extend the contract until the close of the season.
The two-time NBA champion with the Lakers who has also played for the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat, was expected in the Basque capital of Vitoria this week, and could make his debut on Saturday against Valladolid.
Baskonia was ninth in the 18-team Spanish league and last in its Euroleague group, with a match against fellow Spanish club Barcelona on Thursday.
Lamar Odom averaged a career-low 4.1 points and 5.7 rebounds in 88 NBA games last season with the Clippers.
Lamar Odom was arrested for DUI last summer before getting divorced from wife Khloe Kardashian in December.
