Is apology from Lamar Odom on the way?


Is Lamar Odom making amends with Mark Cuban and Mavericks fans?

A tweet from ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher indicated that the former Sixth Man of the Year has owned up for his forgettable stint in Dallas five months after it ended:

Asked about Odom's apology Friday evening, Cuban declined comment.

The Mavs acquired Odom from the Lakers last December, but the forward arrived in Dallas out of shape and in a fragile mental state. He averaged career lows of 6.6 points and 4.2 rebounds with the Mavs, his worst season as a pro.

His disappointing stay came to an end when Cuban dismissed Odom from the team after a confrontation between the two at halftime of the Mavs' game at Memphis on April 7.

Dallas dealt Odom to the Los Angeles Clippers in a four-team trade this offseason that created financial flexibility for the Mavs.
