Lamar Odom

Clippers Won't Re-Sign

Crack Was Last Straw

Lamar Odom
will remain a free agent -- at least for now -- because the L.A. Clippers refused to re-sign him in light of his abuse of drugs, including crack cocaine ... TMZ has learned.

NBA sources tell TMZ, team officials really wanted to re-sign Lamar over the summer after he performed well last season, but he was nearly impossible to reach ... and they couldn't make progress on contract discussions.

We're told the Clippers were STILL interested despite Lamar's flaky behavior, but after news broke about the NBA star's issues with drug addiction ... the team closed the book on a new deal, permanently.

Former L.A. Laker forward Antawn Jamison has since struck an agreement with the Clip Show, and the team's roster is now full ... meaning Lamar's SOL ... at least with the Clippers.

I am sure the trashians are proud of themselves for ruining this mans reputation, life and career. I hope he fights back and takes their ill gotten gains. The devil owns their souls, if they have any.

Since when do sports teams negotiate directly with athletes? He has an agent and a lawyer and any conversations about renegotiations would be handled by them. And you also expect us to believe the NBA is consulting TMZ before making decisions about their rosters?

Lmao at TMZ thinking it was their story that is the reason why they won't re-sign the contract. And who's your source for all of this again? Oh, that's right - Kris.

Stupid MF, some people should not get the opportunities some of these A-holes get. Basketball, football, baseball stars make all that money to wind up using some of the nastiest, dirtiest drugs in the world. Crack really that is the one of the worst drugs; I don’t feel a hint of bad for his ass.

Lamar Odom needs psychiatry with group meetings about his contribution to teams. Fiba World Championships change him from rebounder, defender, and assist person to three point shooter and defender. As Clipper, his minute's don't due fair judgement of his playing abilities due to Coach Negro's decision's in use of player's and time. He won two championships with Laker's and Kobe. Maybe, Jeannie Bush should consider bring back some friend's for Kobe like Lamar, Brian Cook, Derrick Fisher, and Vadimar Radmonovic.
