Lakers offer to Odom “a little north of $8 million” a year

OC Register’s Janis Carr bumped into Lakers assistant GM Ronnie Lester at summer league in Las Vegas and he revealed that the Lakers offer to free agent forward Lamar Odom is now a“little north of $8 million” and he expected a deal to get done early next week.

That would seem to jibe with reports out of Portland (one of the two teams with the requisite cap space to beat the Lakers offer) that the Trail Blazers had signed Utah power forward Paul Millsap to a four-year, $32 million offer sheet. Millsap is a restricted free agent, so Portland’s cap space is now tied up for seven days, while the Jazz decide whether to match the offer.
