Lamar Odom just confirmed to TMZ ... discussions are underway for a return to the team he loved -- the L.A. Clippers.
We got Lamar at LAX about an hour ago ... and he made it clear something is going on between him and the team.
Coach Doc Rivers said he met with Lamar Friday to have a chit chat and there is a buzz that serious negotiations are underway.
Lamar certainly wants back because we know he's been seriously training for the last month ... and as far as we know he's drug free.

Kim & Kanye
Hunting for Real Estate ... AGAIN
Bigger, Better, More Private
11/13/2013 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West haven't even moved into their $11 million Bel Air mansion, and they're already on the lookout for an upgrade -- scoping out sprawling properties to build a secluded MEGA-MANSION ... far away from worldly distractions.
Kim and Kanye checked out the 10-acre plot of land over the weekend -- way in the back of Bel Air, not far from the $11 million house they bought in January -- and sources tell us, they're interested in purchasing it in order to build a newer, bigger house.
We're told the couple likes the plot of land particularly because it's more sequestered than the other place -- which is still under construction -- and now that they have a baby, privacy is more important than ever.
They're not decided just yet -- but we're told if they choose to purchase the new property, they'll sell the one they just bought.
According to sources, the plot of land alone is going for $10 million -- and building on top of it will cost a fortune more.
Not like they can't afford it.

Pulled Over on L.A. Freeway
11/12/2013 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian was just pulled over on an L.A. freeway -- and it caused total pandemonium.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Kim was pulled over for speeding while trying to evade multiple cars driven by paparazzi (not TMZ).
According to sources, the paps (roughly 5 cars total) had been chasing after Kim, and once she was pulled over, they jumped out of their cars IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FREEWAY to snap photos of Kim in her car ... resulting in tons of traffic.
We're told a paparazzi helicopter was even hovering overhead.
And police are PISSED -- our law enforcement sources are saying the paps endangered multiple lives with their risky photography, including Kim's, other drivers on the road, and the officers involved.
We're told the California Highway Patrol cited one photog for speeding and the rest got away. According to sources, the CHP is now looking into the incident further to see if the case can be sent for further prosecution. As one source said, "They're not getting away with this."
Kim didn't get away scot-free though -- we're told she was cited for speeding too.
It LOOKS Like Kanye ... BUT ...

A video has just surfaced showing a man purported to be Kanye West fist fighting like a champion ... knocking 2 guys out cold. If it's Kanye it could be disastrous in his upcoming criminal case because prosecutors want to show he's violent by nature -- HOWEVER....
TMZ has confirmed ... the fighter is NOT Kanye. The video was shot in Austin, TX and Mr. Kardashian wasn't there at the time this hit the Internet.
Our Kanye sources say he's aware of the video and laughed, saying if it were really him, he'd be in jail for sure.
All that aside, you gotta see this video. It's awesome.

Lamar Odom has a savior ... and it turns out it's the other guy in the Kardashian house who left the Klan ... Bruce Jenner.
Sources connected to both Bruce and Lamar tell TMZ ... Lamar has been spending a lot of time with Bruce at his new home in Malibu. They spend hours together during which Bruce counsels Lamar on various life issues, including how to stay clean and whose company he should and shouldn't be keeping.
Bruce is telling confidantes Lamar is CLEAN -- free of drugs and alcohol.
We're told Bruce feels he's a positive influence on Lamar and can make a huge difference in his life. Bruce has told friends he loves Lamar and thinks he's a "good soul."
As Bruce told one friend, "Everybody's got s**t in their life and they need to learn how to deal with it. Lamar didn't deal with his very well."
Bruce is also telling friends ... Lamar is working out constantly and has not given up on his dream to return to the NBA.
And Bruce is saying ... it doesn't matter that Khloe is pulling the plug on her marriage ... he will stay close to Lamar because he genuinely cares for him.
Aw, What A Dad...
Flies Home To Take Care of Baby

Kanye West clearly has new priorities ... leaving an epic birthday party for Leo DiCaprio in NYC and flying all night back to L.A. for North West's doctor's appointment.
We're told Kanye and Kim landed just before 6 AM ... and rushed home where Kanye picked up Nori and headed to the doctor's office in Bev Hills. FYI ... guess who didn't go? Mama K was otherwise engaged.
The kid's fine. It was just a routine baby visit.
Maybe it'll impress the judge in the assault case.
We Sold Our Bras To Raise $$$ For Vets
11/11/2013 2:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian's bra is capable of supporting a whole lot more than her boobs ... it's also helping support U.S. military families.
The Kardashians organized the charity yard sale yesterday -- for their reality show, natch -- to raise money for two charities -- the No Kid Hungry Foundation and the Greater L.A. Fisher house -- which provides housing for families of wounded warriors.
Our Kardashian peeps tell us ... the family raised about $6K by selling their old lingerie, clothing, artwork and household goods ... and the family will match the loot so the total take is $12K.
Tim Byk, founder and exec. director of Fisher House, tells us, "They reached out to us, they found us. Maybe they will make it over to the house for a pizza party."
Cash aside ... we're told the Kardashians are also donating all the items that didn't sell yesterday ... to the Fisher House families.
Kinda nice ... for Veterans Day.
Falls On Ass
... For a Pile of Old Crap
11/11/2013 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian went to a yard sale, and then nearly had one of her own -- tripping over a pile of old crap ... right in front of cameras.
Kim showed up for the sale in a parking lot in the San Fernando Valley ... and proceeded to step backward onto a pile of old stuff while talking to Jonathan Cheban.
Result ... Kim go boom! Although her fall was well cushioned.
Now, before you laugh too hysterically ... you should know the sale was organized by Kendall, Kylie, and Kris Jenner to support NoKidHungry.org -- a worthy and important cause.
Okay. Now go ahead and laugh.

Lamar Odom is living the life of a vagabond ... never staying in one place too long. Latest stop -- a friend's home.
Lamar dropped off a fully-packed suitcase at a pal's house in L.A. on Wednesday -- which also happened to be his 34th birthday.
TMZ broke the story ... Lamar and Khloe Kardashian are secretly selling their Tarzana mansion -- although Lamar hasn't lived there for months -- and Khloe plans to divorce Lamar once she thinks his life is stable enough to handle it.

Bootyful day for a stroll in Santa Barbara today -- Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ventured out this morning for a walk with baby daughter North West, and even though the sun was shining ... it was a full moon.
Nice break from L.A. court, where Kanye's lawyer Blair Berk pled not guilty on the rapper's behalf just a few hours ago in the photog-beating case.
For Kim, Kanye, and North West -- life is just a walk in the park.
He Can't Keep Up the Khloe Lie Anymore
11/7/2013 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Odom seems to be waiving the white flag over his marriage -- at least that's the way it appeared when he was asked about Khloe Kardashian on his way out of lunch to celebrate his 34th birthday.
Lamar went to Casa Vega in the San Fernando Valley -- a place Kim, Khloe and the rest of the klan often go for good Mexican food.
Watch the video and see the look on Lamar's face when he tries to deal with the Khloe question.
TMZ broke the story ... Khloe plans to divorce Lamar, but she's made a decision NOT to prepare or file any legal docs, because she thinks it could be the last straw in his fragile life. On top of that, there's no pressing reason to pull the trigger on the marriage ... yet.
