141320407 Mavs May Trade Odom To Clippers

DALLAS (CBS SPORTS) - Lamar Odom could be heading back to where he had his best days in the NBA, where he won Sixth Man of the Year and championship rings. He could be headed back to Staples Center, back to Los Angeles. To play for the Clippers though — not the Lakers.

According to ESPN, the Los Angeles Clippers are engaged in trade discussions to bring Odom back to the franchise that drafted him. The Dallas Mavericks are very motivated to move Odom, as Friday marks the last day he can be bought out for $2.4 million. Though there are reportedly discussions between Odom’s agent and the Mavs about moving that deadline back while they search for a trade partner.

What the Mavs want is to not have to take on any money in a deal moving Odom, as they have manuevered for financial flexibility this offseason to make a push for Deron Williams. Taking on money complicates that so, as the report notes, a third team could be key to a deal getting done. Dallas could save a little money in trading Odom rather than just straight buying him out, but whatever the case is, he won’t be on the Dallas Mavericks much longer.
