Odom to Play a Game in the D-League

Under the new collective bargaining agreement, teams can send veteran players down to the D-League so that they can get straightened out. Hopefully this doesn’t signal the beginning of the end of Odom’s playing career.

The Dallas Mavericks hope to have Lamar Odom back in uniform in a matter of days, but it might not immediately be a Mavs uniform, sources said.

Odom is likely to play at least one game with the Mavericks’ D-League affiliate in nearby Frisco to, as one source said, “get his legs back under him.” The Texas Legends play the Austin Toros at home Thursday night, but sources said it’s more likely Odom practices with the Legends on Friday while the Mavericks are in New Orleans and then plays Saturday’s home game with the Legends, also against Austin, while the Mavericks are playing host to Utah.

A team spokesman had said earlier Thursday that Odom will not make the trip to New Orleans. The team plans to provide another update on Odom’s status before Saturday’s game.
