Free-agent forward Lamar Odom is a little perplexed at how contract negotiations have been proceeding with the Lakers.
The free agent says he's frustrated but hopeful a deal will get done despite lengthy negotiations, but Kupchak says he isn't as optimistic as he was. Rumors of interest from Miami swirl.
He sounded frustrated he hasn't been able to come to terms with the Lakers on a contract. But he sounded hopeful he and the Lakers will get a deal done.
"I don't know," Odom told The Times in a phone interview. "That's why there are negotiations. I don't know. Of course I hope they can get it done.
"It's negotiations. Both sides are going to give and take. That's part of it. I don't know how long it's going to take."
Odom and Schwartz are seeking more money and years.
