Lamar Odom Signs $2 Million Deal With Besiktas of Turkey | Robert Littal Presents BlackSportsOnline

Lamar Odom Agrees to $2 Million Deal to Take His Talents To Turkey

Deron Williams seems pretty smart now.

He was criticized heavily for making the early jump to Turkey, but he has been collecting checks while other NBA players have been going back and forth with the NBA Lockout.

After Kevin Love turned down an invite to go to Turkey, Odom jumped at opportunity to play besides Williams.

Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom has reached an agreement in principle to sign with Besiktas of Turkey and team up overseas with Nets star Deron Williams, according to sources close to Odom.

Final details will not be sorted out before Friday, sources said, but Odom has indicated that he plans to join the Istanbul-based team as early as next week if the NBA lockout continues.

Sources told ESPN.com that the deal would pay Odom in excess of $2 million if he spends the rest of the season with Besiktas. The deal — first reported in Turkey by NTV Spor and local journalist Mete Aktas — will include an opt-out clause to return to the NBA as soon as the lockout ends, same as in Williams’ contract.

No word if the new reality show will be Lamar and Khloe take Turkey.

    I’ve been searching for a way to fix a zipper problem (one of the teeth is missing), and came accross a good article that isthat’s basically a step by step tutorial explaining in detail what you need to do in order to repair your zipper. I was able to repair mine in less than 20 minutes. I just linked to the article in my post here. Has anyone else ever have to fix a zipper? IMO it was very easy and worth fixing.
