Keep reading to see how our source puts it…
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says Lamar Odom WILL rejoin the team after a brief stint down in the D-League … claiming L.O. simply needs to get his timing back.
Cuban explains, “[Lamar] is doing great. D-League is rehab. [He] needs to get in great shape and then rejoin the Mavs.”
He continues, “Know how baseball teams send a guy down to the minor leagues to get some games in and get timing back? Same thing.”
“Things are going great. He is working super hard. All is good.”
Lamar Odom has been dropped from the Dallas Mavericks roster and sent down to the NBA Developmental League… in the midst of his worst season as an NBA player.
The Mavs have assigned Odom to play for the Texas Legends … which means he’s officially off the Mavericks roster … but will still receive his $8.9 million annual salary.
According to ESPN, Odom was dropped to the D-League to “get his legs back under him.”
Odom had missed a few games to deal with family issues back in L.A. Odom’s father said the NBA star took care of him during a recent stomach illness.
Odom has struggled immensely ever since he was traded away from the Lakers at the beginning of the season … and turned in career low stats with the Mavs.
