TMZ initially reported that Lamar Odom had been missing for 72 hours after reportedly being thrown out of the house by his wife. Now, Lamar's agent has told Marc Stein of ESPN that TMZ's report is not true.

According to Marc Stein...

The agent for NBA veteran Lamar Odom said Monday that Odom's whereabouts are known by his family and that he still has aspirations to return to the NBA.

TMZ reported Sunday that Odom has been missing for 72 hours after a dispute with wife Khloe Kardashian. TMZ also reported that people close to Odom feared that he was involved with drugs.

Jeff Schwartz, Odom's longtime agent, told ESPN.com: "Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is."
Kardashian reacted angrily to the report on Twitter, saying: "Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk s--- about my family."

Without disclosing further specifics, Schwartz added: "Playing in the NBA is still very much a part of Lamar's plans."
Odom spent last season with the Los Angeles Clippers and has been pursued in free agency this summer by the Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers.

And, yes, my friends, the Odom saga continues.
