LAMAR ODOM IS NO LONGER A MAVERICKS PLAYER AFTER REACHING MUTUAL AGREEMENT
Wed, 11 Apr 2012 03:53 AM EDT

The Mavericks and Odom spent Easter Sunday working out a parting, according to resources close to the scenario that frees the struggling Odom to leave the team straight away without really being released. Football betting lines

“The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it’s in the best interest of both parts for me to stand back from the team,” Odom declared in an announcement.

“I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for the two of us, but I wish the Mavs’ franchise, my squad and Dallas admirers nothing except continued success in the defense of their championship.”

Resources announced that Odom’s exit will be speedy and so the Mavericks intend to just list him as inactive for the remainder of the season rather than outright releasing him, leaving open the chance that they could still trade him after the season together with the draft. Any team that has Odom on its register as of June 29 must buy him out by that date for $2.4 million or otherwise take responsibility for the full $8.2 million that Odom is lined up to make in 2012-13.

Whether or not either side had pushed for a formal release, there’s little upside to taking that step now with Odom unsuited to play in the playoffs with another team because he was not waived before the March 23 cut off point.

One source near to the 32-year-old recounted the call sets Odom up to “clear his head and begin to get ready for next season” after his career-low numbers and minutes continued to dip as the season wore on.

Odom’s delegates pushed for the trade to Dallas after it became known that the L.A Lakers had agreed to trade Odom to the league-owned New Orleans Hornets as part of a Chris Paul smash hit that was eventually halted by NBA commissioner David Stern in his role as the Hornets’ lead decision-maker.

All though Odom’s season-long struggles to adjust to his new environment, Mavs officers and players have frequently voiced conviction that the previous Laker could still be a playoff X-factor, pointing to the team’s 0-7 record without him as proof that his presence – if only for the minute relief Odom gives star forward Dirk Nowitzki – has helped the team on some point.

After declining to offer defensive anchor Tyson Chandler more than a 1-year offer in the offseason to save future salary-cap flexibility, even after Chandler’s pivotal role in the Mavericks’ championship breakthrough last season, Dallas exploited the ensuing trade exception made by Chandler’s sign-and-trade move to the N.Y Knicks to bring Odom in with the idea that the parties could help each other significantly on a 1-season basis.

Dallas was initially seen as an ideal destination for Odom to start over after the jolt of being dropped by the Los Angeles Lakers, but he began the season well short of peak shape after a tumultuous summer on a personal level and never really caught up.

Odom leaves the Mavericks averaging only 6.6 points and 4.1 rebounds in 20.5 minutes per game while shooting 35.2% from the field, all career lows by some distance.

Unlike a leave Odom was given just before the All-Star break, there aren’t any plans to bring him back to the team this time, sources claimed.
