Looks like former Dallas Mavericks’ bust Lamar Odom will be resuming his basketball career.

The catch is that it won’t be in the NBA.

The 14-year veteran will be signing with a club in Spain, most like Laboral Vitoria.

Odom was not signed by a team during the offseason after his play has diminished over the last two seasons and after reports of drug use have surfaced.

Odom was set to be traded to the then New Orleans Hornets in the turned down Chris Paul trade.

Odom was sent to the Mavericks, where he didn’t even last a season.

He then signed with the Los Angeles Clippers last offseason, putting up career lows of 4.o points and 1.7 rebounds.

Odom holds career averages of 13.3 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 3.7 assists.

He also won the 6th man of the year award during the 2011 season.
