Lamar Odom will be back at Staples Center on Monday, giving his former teammates a chance to catch up.

Not that a few haven't attempted to communicate with the forward in the month since the Lakers traded him to the Dallas Mavericks.

"I tried to call him," forward Pau Gasol said, "but he's hard to reach."

The Lakers could always leave a message. Or not.

"His voicemail is always full," forward Luke Walton said. "He was like that when he played here."
