DALLAS (AP) – A person with knowledge of the deal says Lamar Odom is headed back to Los Angeles for a second chance with the Clippers and Mo Williams will be reunited with Utah.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday night because a three-team deal between the Dallas Mavericks, Clippers and Jazz is contingent on Williams invoking his $8.5 million player option for next season. That person told The Associated Press that would happen by Friday.

The Jazz drafted Williams in 2003, and are using a trade exception created by dealing Mehmet Okur to New Jersey last year. Dallas gets an $8.2 million trade exception instead of having to buy out Odom’s deal for $2.4 million.

The Dallas Morning News first reported that a deal had been struck.
