Odom to Continue Comeback With Knicks

Lamar Odom, Phil Jackson’s first player acquisition, will start his comeback at the Knicks’ training facility Monday.

Jackson signed Odom on the final day of the regular season with a non-guaranteed pact for the upcoming season, giving the Knicks time to evaluate the troubled power forward from Queens.

“He’s coming to town this week,” Jackson said in his first comments on Odom. “We know he’s a really good basketball player. He wants to put himself back together, and he has a chance to do that by having the whole summer to work at it and getting himself back in basketball condition to play. He told me that’s what he wants to do. Having a relationship with him. It’s a pretty good risk-reward situation for us.’’

Odom could play on the Knicks’ summer-league team in July in Las Vegas.
