LA Clippers set to re-sign Lamar Odom?

Los Angeles Clippers could complete the signing of Lamar Odom once they return from their seven-game road trip on December 14, reports

The 34-year-old free agent forward has been heavily linked with a return to his old squad, as coach Doc Rivers continues his search for cover for injured shooting guard J.J. Redick.

Redick has been ruled out for at least six weeks after fracturing a small bone in his right hand and tearing his right ulnar collateral ligament in Friday's 104-98 win over the Sacramento Kings.

"He's somebody that I've always liked and I like him more now after hearing from Phil Jackson to Vinny [Del Negro] to all the players the type of guy he is in the locker room," Rivers was quoted by ESPN last week.

"When I hear that stuff, without saying exactly what I heard, you want him in your locker room."

Odom averaged four points and 5.9 rebounds per game in 82 appearances for the Clippers last season, but has been without a team since leaving the Staples Center.

He will continue to work out on his own in anticipation of landing an end-of-the-season deal with the Clippers once they return from their two-week tour which begins in Atlanta, and takes in stops at Memphis, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Boston, Brooklyn and Washington.

And, despite Sunday's 105-100 defeat to the Indiana Packers, Rivers is happy to continue relying on Clippers veterans Jamal Crawford and Willie Green to fill the forward void.
