Little by little, Lamar Odom is trying to rebuild his life.
"He is taking steps to get himself back on track," a source tells E! News. "He wants his old life back, although he realizes that might not include Khloé."
But might it include his former employers?
The 33-year old won multiple titles with the Los Angeles Lakers and this same insider says he's "determined to play" alongside Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol again.
Odom has allegedly been clear and sober for more than a week and is priorities are shifting back in to place.
"He just wants to get healthy and be there for his kids," E! says of Lamar and his two children from a previous relationship.
As for his marriage? The future doesn't look nearly as bright.
He and Khloe reunited briefly on October 8 in light of Bruce and Kris Jenner announcing their separation - and the latter does continue to wear her wedding ring. But most friends insist a divorce is inevitable.
Lamar did get a haircut from his brother this week, though, and that sibling says Odom has a meeting scheduled with the Lakers. Should the team resign him?
