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 find it really sad that everyone is assuming that he's a crackhead. He seems to be a very decent guy and doesn't have beef with any of his former teammates. For those who are on the Harvey van, you guys suck just like he does! D@#K IN YOUR MOUTH!!!!!!
