-- 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.

Well HOW can THIS be true? Hasn't TMZ trashed this MAN for MONTHS claiming he's a crackhead, alcoholic who's addicted to all sorts of stuff?
.
NOW we have THIS! I find it hard to believe that ANY team would talk to this guy if he's as bad off as TMZ and the Trashkanians have made him out to be.

Looks like the "empire" IS Krumbling. NO Stopping it now.

What's odd to me is Lamar was pretty buddy buddy with Rob, notice how Rob has been absent thru all this Lamar bashing. I have a feeling ROB knows the TRUTH and has probably been told to STFU and stay QUIET (contract) while the Pimp and her WHORES trash this guy.

What do you know. He's back to work like I thought he would be. No rehab and no Wookie "saving" him. He needs to dump that KarTrashian trash and sue the "Informer/Liar" for Defamation of character but I guess you wouldn't want to sue your mother in law.
Dump that S**tty family and make a real one Lamar

WAIT! I thought he was on a multi-week crack binge in a gated community crack house, whacked out on hillbilly heroin, cheating with other women, missing, buying scouring pads, smoking more crack, in-rehab, spiraling downward, being repped by Robt Shapiro, wandering the streets near skid row, smoking more crack, buying an anniversary gift, too doped up to NEGOTIATE a divorce settlement for a pre-nup that can't be negotiated, smoking more crack, ready to OD and barely sipping miso soup. What NBA team would talk to him?
