Lamar Odom is on his way back to Los Angeles as part of a three team deal that sends the former sixth man of the year to the Clippers, and Mo Williams to the Utah Jazz.
The deal between the Dallas Mavericks, L.A. Clippers and Utah Jazz is contingent on Williams exercising his $8.5 million player option for next season.
The Jazz can absorb the entirety of Williams's salary without going over the cap, so it is likely that their contribution to the trade is a draft pick that will go to Dallas.
The Mavericks had until Friday to deal Odom, or buyout his $8.2 million dollar contract for $2.4 million after a season in which he put up career lows in every category and struggled to find his place in the Dallas rotation.
Williams, who was drafted by Utah, has spent time with the Bucks, Cavaliers and Clippers. Las season for the Clippers he put up 13.2 points and 3.1 assists per game while averaging 28.3 minutes per game coming off the bench.
None of the parties have commented on this deal yet as it is still contingent on Williams exercising his option as well as physicals for all the parties involved. But it is expected that all three teams will make announcements sometime on Friday.
