Odom to the Heat??

>> Friday, July 17, 2009

Lamar Odom has been offered a contract believed to be worth 35 million dollars by the Miami Heat. All indications were that Odom would return to the Lakers following the departure of Trevor Ariza a few weeks ago, but talks apparently broke down between the Buss family and Odom earlier this week.

Odom, a 6'10" forward with guard skills, could help entice Dwayne Wade into earlier contract talks and helps move the Heat back into a competitive standpoint within the NBA's Eastern Conference.
