The road was tough and the journey difficult, but Lamar Odom is back in the NBA.

The estranged husband of Khloe Kardashian signed an unusual contract with the New York Knicks yesterday, coming on board for the final game of their 2013-2014 season (a loss last night in which he did not play) and agreeing to a team option for the 2014-2015 season.

Based on the deal, the Knicks can see what sort of shape Odom is in this summer before deciding to pick up said option or not.

It's adios to Spain for Lamar Odom. The athlete's basketball comeback in a Spanish pro hoops league is over almost as quickly as it began due to injury.

Khloe Kardashian’s future ex-husband only played in two games for the Laboral Kutxa Baskonia Spanish team before making an early departure.

After an ongoing back injury has sidelined him, he returned to the U.S. for treatment. He’s expected to be out of commission for at least a month's time.

Whether or not he’ll return to Europe to complete his two-month contract is unclear, according to reports, but many consider it unlikely for the 34-year-old.

After becoming a free agent last year, the troubled star was hoping to sign with the L.A. Clippers or Lakers, which never came to fruition ... shockingly.

Odom arrested last year for a DUI and after reports of infidelity, drug use and crack videos, his reality star wife of four years filed for divorce in December.

Lamar Odom is apparently still holding out hope that things will work out with Khloe Kardashian, saying that his estranged spouse "will always be my wife."

Maybe legally, if he avoids signing the divorce papers long enough.

Is Khloe Kardashian taking Lamar Odom back? This tabloid cover seems to think so.


Odom, who just signed with the Spanish pro team Baskonia (a.k.a. Laboral Kutxa), acknowledged that the divorce may happen, but he hopes it doesn't.

Either way, their union will never completely be over ... in his mind.

"I love my wife. She'll always be my wife, no matter what," he said.

"Who knows? We don't know exactly if [the divorce is going through]. Only time will tell. I hope not. But even if we were divorced, she would always be my wife."

The athlete went on to say that marrying the reality star was one of the greatest things he'd ever done. "Those were some of the best years of my life," he told Us.

Lamar Odom is going away again.

But not to rehab this time... to Spain!

The ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian has signed a two-month contract with a professional basketball team in that country, Laboral Kutxa. It includes an option to be extended for the rest of the season.

Odom played for the Los Angeles Clippers during the 2012-2013 season and was close to a return with that squad in November.

Khloe Kardashian is filing for divorce from Lamar Odom, reports say, and it will all go down today. She will cite irreconcilable differences for the split.

According to TMZ, the divorce filing should be basic from a legal standpoint, as a prenuptial agreement kept all all of the couple's assets separate.

Khloe and Lamar have no kids; he has three from a previous relationship.

As previously reported, the final straw was not his crack use, or alleged cheating with Polina Polonsky, or DUI arrest, or his refusal to go to rehab.

It was the NBA player's random, infamous freestyle rap video.

Leaked last month when there still appeared to be a glimmer of hope in the duo's crumbling relationship, the clip showed Lamar rapping incoherently.

After the leak of the so-called Lamar Odom crack video - he claims he wasn't on drugs, just really drunk at the time - she took off her wedding ring.

Lamar Odom swears he is not on crack again, despite a video that surfaced this week and would certainly suggest as much to the untrained observer.

The athlete admits he fell off the wagon last week, when the video (below), was shot, but he insists he was merely drunk out of his mind. No crack.

Phew?

The alleged Lamar Odom crack video posted by TMZ shows him slurring his words in an L.A. bathroom and rapping shirtless with Jamie Sangouthai.

In it, the 34-year-old raps about how he uses drugs "make the pain go away," and also notes that "When Khloe's out of town, I still be on the DL."

Odom's friend adds after that last part, "You know what it is / We the QU [Queens] pimps / Ask any of these shorties / We ran through their cribs."

Despite getting specific in the video about using crack and cocaine (and alluding to cheating on Khloe Kardashian), Lamar swears he is not on drugs.

He clean and training at the University of Rhode Island for his supposed return to the Clippers ... though one has to wonder if they've also seen this.

Lamar Odom's drug problem may not be as under control as he'd like us to believe, at least based on this video, shot this month and obtained by TMZ.

In it, the athlete raps incoherently rapping without his shirt on, talking about drugs, making money without the NBA, and cheating on Khloe Kardashian.

Lamar does not smoke crack in this video. Let's make that clear. Yet it's a celebration of sorts for the drug lifestyle that torpedoed his career and marriage.

He appears to be out of it, rapping about his fragrance Unbreakable, how he uses drugs to "make the pain go away," and even drops Kanye West's name.

One key line he raps: "And when Khloe's out of town, I still be on the DL."

His friend adds, "You know what it is / We the QU [Queens] pimps."

Lamar Odom has now confirmed that reports this past weekend are true. He is in discussions to return to the L.A. Clippers, the last NBA team he played for.

Spotted at LAX earlier, he made it clear that something is indeed going on between him and the team, which did not re-sign him after the 2012-13 campaign.

Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said he met with Lamar Friday to have a discussion and there is a buzz that serious negotiations are underway with Odom.

The team does have a roster spot, so it's not out of the question that the estranged Mr. Khloe Kardashian could be back on the NBA court before long.

Odom, 34, certainly wants back in the game, because he's been seriously training for the last month, and seems to have convinced the Clips he's drug free.

Lamar Odom had a two-hour meeting with L.A. Clippers management Friday, perhaps signaling that he may return to the franchise for which he last played.

The 34-year-old power forward, who is still a free agent, did not have his NBA contract renewed by the Clippers after a disappointing season in 2012-13.

He has been battling widely-publicized substance abuse issues as well as marital problems with wife Khloe Kardashian over the past couple of months.

Nothing is on paper yet, but Lamar may get another chance at pro ball yet.

"He's been talking to them for weeks," says a Kardashian family source.

"He's close to signing. They were definitely apprehensive but Lamar has shown huge improvement over the last few weeks and everyone around him believes he's sober."

Lamar Odom will reportedly check into rehab "any day now," with the support of estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, in an attempt to salvage his marriage.

The troubled, 33-year-old basketball star has, according to a new report, paid for a three-month stint at a rehabilitation facility in Malibu, Calif., in full.

If this report is true, we'd be a little surprised, as Odom has been notoriously resistant to the idea before, when he was in the throes of crack addiction.

He's been opening up about his life and health lately too, and appears to be in better shape than he was previously. So why would he go now?

Perhaps he has been self-healing and had some success, but knows he needs additional treatment to win back the trust of Khloe and the Lakers?

The report says Kardashian was on the line to to support him when he made a call to the rehab facility, which certainly falls in line with that theory.
