07:17 AM ET 08.29 | As interest in Lamar Odom's future draws concern, his on-court options remain somewhat in limbo, too. After planning to officially sign veteran forward Antawn Jamison Wednesday at the veteran's minimum worth $1.4 million, the Clippers no longer are interested in resigning Odom, according to a league source familiar with the team's thought process. Once Jamison's signing becomes official, the Clippers will have 14 players under contract, one player shy of the NBA's imposed maximum number of players allowed on a roster. But the Clippers plan to fill out the last roster spot at some point during training camp, which begins in late September, according to a source. The Clippers would welcome Odom to training camp, though it remains unclear if he'd be interested in just that.

Why bother when you know he's gonna fail his drug test?

Shocking even after spending a year w/ the Clippers and knowing all these facts about him.

Time to cut Lamar loose. Bring him to camp and it could wreck the chemistry of the team.

Lamar's life if nothing but a mess the second he married into the Kardashian family. So let them deal with it. Knowing Kris Jenner, she'll try to get a TV deal to tape Lamar in rehab for ratings and money. But only if she gets her 10%.

I don't think anyone would welcome him back after his disastrous performance with the Mavs, I'm glad the Lakers got rid of him...

Lamar's life has been nothing but a mess since the second he was traded by the Lakers. I don't think it's the Kardashian family that has caused his troubles.

Rumor has it that the Lakers have told Lamar that they will guarantee him a roster spot if he checks into rehab right away.

He should be back to 6th man status. I'm surprise they didn't take Fisher back also.

The Clippers stole Jamison from the Fakers so why try to get this looney Bin who exchanged his sweet tooth to nose candy.

I hope Lamar can get out of this situation. He had some bad setbacks in his life like losing his baby son. He seems to be a good guy. Good luck to him.

For the drug connection or to have a fall guy on hand?

How can you steal what is not wanted and freely available? Don't worry he will pick his Cavs uniform for his induction into the HOF....

Mark Cuban really effed up Lamar!

August 29, 2013  11:53 AM ET

Has he surfaced yet? Any sightings? We may need to get Geraldo on the case.

He'll go in under the uniform to your other favorite team. The Wizards!
