Lamar Odom

DROPPED from the Mavericks

3/2/2012 12:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0302_lamar_BN_01
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.

Holy crap! Let me guess... He's going to retire and start coaching. I wonder how the K Klan will try to spin this! That family is just bad luck. Run Lamar! Run away.

This headline is misleading. He is playing ONE game to get his legs and body back into basketball with the D-League team before re-joining the Mavs.

What a horrible headline.. He going for one game, and agreed to it because he has been off for a week... Making it sound way worse than it is...the only way they can do that is if he agrees to it
