ORLANDO, FL - JUNE 14:  Lamar Odom #7 of the Los Angeles Lakers runs up court in the first half against the Orlando Magic in Game Five of the 2009 NBA Finals on June 14, 2009 at Amway Arena in Orlando, Florida.

Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom is on course to stay with L.A. after all.

Lakers Assistant General Manager Ronnie Lester has said that the Lakers are willing to pay Odom around the $8 million price range. He also stated that the deal could be done by next week, which is good news for Lakers fan.

Odom is the best player right now on the NBA market for the Los Angeles Lakers. Odom has certainly expressed his desire to stay with the Lakers after they won the franchise's 15th championship.

Lamar can produce numbers like these in a nightly basis: 15.1 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game.

The Lakers have the potential to repeat without Odom, but Odom increases their likelihood of doing a feat like that.

Now let's hope Lamar Odom doesn't have the same agent as Trevor Ariza.

Thanks to Randy Garcia for pasting this on a comment I accidently bumped into. Very much appreciated.
