Clippers Unlikely To Sign Lamar Odom This Week

The Clippers got a bad piece of news today when they learned guard J.J. Redick will be sidelined six-to-eight weeks with a fracture in the small bone (pisiform) of his right hand and a tear of his right ulnar collateral ligament (UCL).  Despite that setback, the Clippers are unlikely to sign Lamar Odom before their long road trip ends in mid-December, according to Marc Stein of (on Twitter).

A report last month indicated that Odom only wanted to sign with the Clippers, but last week, coach Doc Rivers indicated that there was competition for his services.  For what it’s worth, Rivers says he’s more comfortable with the idea of signing the 14-year veteran after speaking with Phil Jackson and Vinny Del Negro, both of whom have coached Odom.
