Besiktas: No Deal for Brook, but Odom official

Besiktas’s talks with Brook Lopez have allegedly fallen through, but that hasn’t stopped the bigs-strapped Turkish club from officially signing Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom, according to NTVSpor.net. This marks the second power forward in the past year married to a Kardashian that Deron Williams has shared a roster with, assuredly breaking some kind of record.

In signing Odom, Besiktas shored up its front line after Semih Erden broke his thumb in Tuesday’s 105-94 victory.

Today is day 147 of the NBA lockout.
