Report: Odom to Clippers depends on Jazz, Mo Williams
According to sources close to ESPN.com's Marc Stein, the Clippers, Jazz and Mavericks may be closing in on a three-way deal that would see Lamar Odom go to the Clippers.
The Mavericks would deal Odom to the Clippers for Mo Williams, who would be flipped to the Jazz. The Mavericks in the deal would essentially be trading Odom's salary without taking back any. The Mavericks have a Friday deadline to pay Odom a $2.4 million buyout on his $8.2 million salary. If the buyout doesn't occur, Odom's salary will be on the books for the Mavericks next season.
For the deal to go through, Mo Williams would have to invoke his $8.5 million player option for next season. If Williams fails to exercise the option, he would become a free agent.
