-- Lamar bailed on the flight to NYC. We're told he became uneasy about making the trip after we posted this story about his plans -- and he has not rescheduled.

Lamar Odom is flying to New York later today ... to meet with honchos from several basketball teams, and he's carrying what he claims is proof that he's clean and sober ... sources connected with Lamar tell TMZ.

Our sources say on Tuesday ... Lamar underwent blood and urine tests for drugs, and he tested NEGATIVE for drugs.

This is consistent with what other sources have told us about his time with the Kardashians on Tuesday.  We're told he was lucid and showed no signs of being under the influence of drugs.

We're told Lamar has had private conversations with execs from several teams who have expressed interest in him, provided he could show he was clean ... and the purpose of the trip is to meet with them and possibly strike a deal.

Our sources also say Lamar wanted to go to New York to visit his family, and get away from "the negative energy."

And finally, our sources tell us Lamar says he's had his fun with drugs and is ready to re-start his basketball career.  Fact is ... he's done that before.

BOYCOTT KMZ.....why keep making up stories for your. Krap family of idiots?...all of your stories are supplied by PIGMOM and are fodder for that Krappy falling in the ratings scripted "reality " show. You had Lamar hooked on drugs and selling jewelry to buy drugs and now he is clean and sober?...KMZ. Has ZERO credibility...just like the Krapdashians.

Most addicts can go clean just long enough to pass a test if something important is happening. Other than pot, most drugs leave your system within a few days.

So, does this mean Lamar is going to see his Dad now? How many other family members does he have in NY?

I like your last sentence, coughcough...FACT IS...um, ya, it's a fact according to who? Oh that's right, whatever pimpmomager sells you is an honest to God fact right? I so hope Lamar has a lawsuit in the wings as soon as the divorce is finalized.

You do know that it only takes 2 to 5 days for cocaine to leave your system? So he could've smoked crack last Saturday and pass a drug test today.

the teams better have it made known that before they will give Lamar a final deal he has to prove his clean with mandatory drug tests. or he finaly goes to rehab as a condition of them signing him.

A team interested in a lackluster 33 year old rehabbing drug addict ? Yeah, right. He couldn't hit the floor with a basketball at this point!

Why are all the comments always insulting and negative? If Lamar Odom has a drug problem i hope he has a positive support system around him to get better and wish him good luck. Also people who make comments about Khloe's looks are jealous. She is very pretty and nobody knows their real business. Show respect.

Maybe Lamar got tired of Khloe's self obsession with her "camel toe" & her "vagina" that she talks about CONSTANTLY! Product of a sick & vulgar minded woman.
