Is Mo Pulling for Lamar?

mo_odom

Earlier today Mo Williams expressed his interest in Lakers forward, Lamar Odom, via Twitter. The Lakers recently pulled their $27 Million dollar offer from Odom, and it’s no secret that the Cavaliers are shopping around for a forward that can shoot the ball. The latest news from Cleveland is that the Cavs are currently looking into signing Rob Kurz, a free agent forward who spent last season with the Golden State Warriors.

It’s clear that Odom would be a great fit in Cleveland and could potentially be the new starter at PF. However, there is only one problem. Lamar Odom is a bit on the expensive side. Last year Odom earned $14 Million from the Lakers and will most likely be looking to sign for somewhere around that amount. Sadly, the Cavaliers only have about $4 Million left of the MLE. Although a deal is unlikely, the only way the Cavs would be able to bring Odom to Cleveland would be via sign and trade.

    Lamar is now rumored to be possibly going back to Miami. Seems like this guy is set on getting paid for what could be his last “big” contract.

    @Drew I’m not sold on Kruz either but maybe they are looking at another big that can shoot. He has a little range and can rebound the ball, but your right about this guy not really helping us when a championship.
