They didn't word the article well... it's unclear whether that means it's $33M if the Lakers opt to keep Odom or $33M if the Lakers opt to decine his contract... all it says is "excercise".
If its $33M guaranteed regardless of keeping him or not... good deal, if its the same $27M deal with a team option for $6M in the final year... bad deal.
