Former Lakers and Clippers forward Lamar Odom will resume his basketball career after signing with Spanish franchise Laborla Kutxa.

Odom played last season for the Clippers, but had yet to find a home again in the NBA.

The 6-foot-10 forward will join former Chicago Bulls’ forward Andres Nocioni in Basque.

In a tweet, the team unveiled Odom’s No. 7 jersey and urged fans to buy a replica.

After winning two titles in seven seasons with the Lakers, Odom was traded to the Dallas Mavericks.

Odom has averaged 13.3 points, 8.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists a game in his 14 NBA seasons.

Last year, he contributed just 4.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists a night for the Clippers.
