Lamar Odom has been training with hopes of getting picked up by an NBA team, and reportedly two of his former teams, the Lakers and Clippers, are interested.

According to a report by TMZ, some officials for the Clippers might want to give Odom a shot, but a few of the players don't think it would be a good idea and feel his personal issues will get in the way.  

Los Angeles Clippers players don’t want Lamar Odom because they feel he’ll only be a distraction to them, according to a report.

Odom, 34, has been working out lately and a recent report indicated the Clippers would sign him at some point this season. If the team’s players had their way, he wouldn’t be signed back.

The one time Sixth Man of the Year's fall from grace has been well-documented as various reports of him using crack surfaced, and he was arrested on a DUI this past summer. 

Most recently, a video surfaced of a topless Lamar freestyle rapping about hooking up with women, and using/selling drugs.  Teams have shown in interest in LO but have maintained that he must be clean and sober before they'd give him a shot.
