Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said the meeting he had with free agent Lamar Odom at the team's practice facility Friday went well and that the organization is interested in the forward. No deal was imminent between the Clippers and Odom, but the team will continue to monitor things. "I've always had interest in him," Rivers said Saturday. "I've always liked him. The teams he has played on, the coaches who have coached him have always liked him… I hadn't seen him. I just wanted to see him." Odom has said the Clippers are the only team he would play for, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. "It really was I just wanted to see him physically and see how he was doing," Rivers said. "He looked good. He looked great. He looked like his weight was way down and in good shape. But that doesn't mean a lot." If the Clippers offer Odom a contract, it would be for the veteran's minimum of about $883,000, the executives said. Rivers, the Clippers' vice president of basketball operations, was asked where things were left between him and Odom.
