The SportsXchange

Free-agent forward Lamar Odom has been in a Los Angeles hotel while friends are trying to get him help for a drug problem, ESPN reported Monday.

Odom's agent, Jeff Schwartz, refuted a report from TMZ that Odom was missing for 72 hours after having a disagreement with wife Khloe Kardashian.

"Lamar is not missing," Schwartz said. "His wife knows exactly where he is."

TMZ also reported Sunday that some of Odom's friends are afraid that he may have a drug problem. ESPN reported Monday that a source said friends are trying to get help for Odom.

"Playing in the NBA is still very much a part of Lamar's plans," Schwartz said.

Odom, 33, averaged 4.0 points and 5.9 rebounds in 82 games last season with the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers have expressed interest in him for this season.
