Okay, here’s your rumor du jour to get things started on this Wednesday morning: According to sources quoted at ESPN.com, Deron Williams’ Beşiktaş Milangaz is actively pursuing the Los Angeles Lakers’ Lamar Odom to join the Eurochallenge side while the NBA player lockout continues.
“Odom turned 32 earlier this month and is considering whether to accept the proposal,” states the ESPN article, which also informs that Beşiktaş officials had been chasing the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Kevin Love and the Chicago Bulls’ Luol Deng. Love formally declined an offer on the weekend, telling media that “I didn’t feel it was the right decision for me at this time.”
Beşiktaş is reportedly also looking into signing free agent Nene or Team Poland/Phoenix Suns big man Marcin Gortat; Gortat is described as “highly interested” in getting with the Turkish team.
But if Odom signs up? BiE’s already imagining the reality TV program…
