CLIPPERS AND MAVERICKS ARE IN TALKS FOR ODOM’S TRANSFER
Fri, 29 Jun 2012 03:54 AM EDT

The L.A Clippers have engaged in trade discussions to bring Lamar Odom back to the Los Angeles team that drafted him, according to sources close to the scenario. Football betting lines

Yet the deal, sources declared, could hinge on the willingness of a 3rd team to take on the agreement of Clippers vet guard Mo Williams, which would allow the Dallas Mavericks to send Odom to the Clippers with no important cash returning to the Mavericks.

With a Fri. deadline looming for the Mavericks to buy out the final year of Odom’s contract for $2.4 million, Dallas officers have green-lighted Odom’s agent, Jeff Schwartz, to try to get a new home for Odom this week via trade. The Mavericks and Schwartz also have discussed pushing the cut-off point back into July if an Odom trade cannot be struck before Friday.

The Mavericks’ interest in an Odom contract, though, is purely to gain financial adaptability, which possibly requires a 3rd team to take on Williams. If no trade can be struck, either this week or before a modified deadline, Dallas is predicted to at last buy Odom out and make him a free agent, with big-market teams like Miami and N.Y also planning to pursue him in that scenario.

Although Williams is a former All-Star and still a valuable contributor at 29-year-old, Dallas has little need for him given its long-planned pursuits of marquee independent agents Deron Williams and Steve Nash and its oft-stated desire to bring back championship-winning point guard Jason Kidd when free agency starts at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.

Mo Williams has maintained all season that he intends to exercise his $8.5 million player option for the 2012-13 season despite the fact the L.A Clippers have Chris Paul and promising youngster Eric Bledsoe at point guard, and want to bring back veteran guard Chauncey Billups, even after the 35-year-old suffered a season-ending Achilles injury.

Yet it is still to be seen whether Mo Williams will hold to that stance. He has until June 30 to make that call and his agent, Mark Bartelstein, lately asserted that he and the Los Angeles Clippers were “kind of exploring all” to find the best solution.

Sources recounted that one team to express interest in Williams is the Los Angeles Lakers, who still have a trade exception big enough to absorb Williams’ deal that they created when they dealt Lamar Odom to Dallas.

Odom, in the meantime, is eager to return to his adopted home of L.A to restart his career after what amounts to a lost season after his trade from the Lakers to the Mavericks in December.

Drafted by the Clippers in 1999 and a winner of 2 championship rings in the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons with the L.A Lakers , Odom never fit with the Dallas Mavericks and left the team by mutual consent before the playoffs started after a nightmarish 3 months.

Odom has been working out on his own ever since and will attempt to earn a spot on the team bound for the London Olympics the month after next when he reports to Team USA training camp in Las Vegas.
