Celtics Rumors: Lamar Odom Reportedly Seeking Buyout, Eyeing C's

Lamar Odom's time in Dallas may be coming to an end. The former Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers forward is reportedly seeking a buyout from his contract with the Dallas Mavericks, according to a report from Hoops Authority, and is interested in joining either the Boston Celtics or New Jersey Nets.

After speaking with a league executive Tuesday night, Hoops Authority has learned that Odom is seeking a buyout from the Mavericks, with his focus set on taking his talents to the Boston Celtics or New Jersey Nets. (via Hoops Authority)

The reports have not been confirmed by any other basketball sources, but it is an interesting thought for the Celtics, who are in desperate need of shaking things up. Odom has averaged 14.4 points and 8.7 rebounds in his career and is averaging 7.7 points and 4.5 rebounds through 32 games this season in Dallas.
