Report: Lamar Odom to join New York Knicks

Free agent forward Lamar Odom will reportedly join the New York Knicks before the end of the current season.

Lamar Odom will reportedly sign for the New York Knicks before the end of the regular season later today.

The former Los Angeles Lakers forward has been a free agent for much of this season following his arrest for driving under the influence last summer, playing just two games in the Spanish league.

According to ESPN, recently-appointed Knicks president Phil Jackson, who worked with Odom during his spell as Lakers coach, is keen for a reunion with the 34-year-old.

Signing the forward before the end of this season would allow the Knicks to offer him a contract without guarantees for the next campaign.
