Knicks sign Lamar Odom for remainder of season

Lamar Odom has signed to the New York Knicks for the remainder of the season.

Knicks President Phil Jackson announced the news Thursday, however he remained tight lipped on the terms of the deal.

Odom has been surrounded by controversy in his personal life this season, with his alleged drug abuse and cheating on his wife, Khloe Kardashian.

After being dropped by the LA Clippers, Odom appeared in two games for Spanish team Baskonia.

The veteran forward and troubled reality-TV star has signed a deal for “the remainder of the season” with a non-guaranteed second year in 2014-15.

Odom’s non-guaranteed second year on his contract — likely for the veteran minimum — also will make him available to be included in any trades this summer for salary-cap purposes.

Odom’s signing reunites him with Knicks president Phil Jackson, who was head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers for Odom’s tenure there.
