Lamar Odom asked Lakers to trade him, source says

After the Lakers tried and and failed to trade Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol for New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul on Friday, a team source said Odom was so upset he asked general manager Mitch Kupchak to trade him. Kupchak told Odom he would “think about it.” Jeff Schwartz, Odom’s agent, then phoned Kupchak on Saturday to say the versatile 6-foot-10 forward still wanted to be dealt. The team hasn’t completed the proposed trade to the Dallas Mavericks, but the source indicated Kupchak was merely attempting to comply with the wishes of an unhappy player.
