An inside source at has clarified that Lamar Odom will sign a contract with the Miami Heat  on Wednesday.

If this signing does indeed go through, the Heat will add a premier, versatile 6-foot-10 forward with endless abilities to their roster.

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, GM Pat Riley is expected to make a "harder push" for Utah Jazz's all-star forward Carlos Boozer if the Heat sign Odom.

If they could bring both Odom and Boozer in, the Heat organization can confidently say that their mission to extend Wade's contract will be a guaranteed success.
