Sacramento Kings forward Caron Butler remarked on the ongoing situation regarding Lamar Odom, who has been hospitalized after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel, after last night's 107-100 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Caron Butler on Lamar Odom: "Extremely saddened by that news. I got a text from a mutual friend and I'm praying for him right now."— Jason Jones (@mr_jasonjones) October 14, 2015
Butler and Odom became teammates with the Miami Heat in the 2003-04 season and were then traded together along with Brian Grant to the Lakers in exchange for Shaquille O'Neal.
