Mavericks Mavs and Odom agree to part ways

Quote:
Lamar Odom's brief and bumpy ride with the Dallas Mavericks has come to an abrupt end.

The Mavericks and Odom spent Easter Sunday working out a parting, according to sources close to the situation, that frees the struggling Odom to leave the team immediately without actually being released.

"The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it's in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team," Odom said in a statement to ESPN.com.

Sources said Monday that Odom's departure will be immediate and that the Mavericks intend to simply list him as inactive for the rest of the season instead of outright releasing him, leaving open the possibility that they could still trade him after the season in conjunction with the draft. Any team that has Odom on its roster as of June 29 must buy him out by that date for $2.4 million or otherwise accept responsibility for the full $8.2 million that Odom is scheduled to earn in 2012-13.

Even if either side had pushed for a formal release, there is little upside to taking that step now with Odom ineligible to play in the playoffs with another team because he wasn't waived before the March 23 deadline.

One source close to the 32-year-old told ESPN.com that the decision sets Odom up to "clear his head and start getting ready for next season" after his career-low numbers and minutes continued to dip as the season wore on.

Mark Cuban saved the Hornets a shitload of bread. Good job.
Odom and his ugly wife should just release a sex tape, then they'd be true celebrities.

The Lakers are not a championship team. He wanted out after feeling betrayed when the Lakers tried to ship him off for Chris Paul. He's a mental midget that is regretting his trade request.

That's what i don't get. He asks to be dealt...he gets dealt to a contender then has trouble dealing with it. Ridiculous!

Odom is a very emotional person lol

some players like Jose were able to deal with being traded, that trade getting nixed and then staying with the original team, whereas Odom felt there was no way he could stay a Laker.. i thought a second rounded for him was a huge steal but the Lakers must've been aware that he's fallen off or not interested/motivated in relation to basketball, really no excuse for his terrible play this season.

Well Dallas is even worse than Lakers. Plus, Odom specifically requested a trade to Dallas, so I'm sure he wanted to play (well) for a "championship" team.

Where does it say he requested to go to Dallas? I don't remember seeing that, I just remember he didn't want to stay with the Lakers. There is really no reason to under-perform then.

At least he's giving the Mavs back his whole salary for playing like a suck all season and putting out 50%.


HAHAHAHAHA....late April Fools.

Odom's problem is he loves shooting from outside but he isn't a great shooter.

Odom's representatives pushed for the trade to Dallas after it became known that the Lakers had agreed to trade Odom to the league-owned New Orleans Hornets as part of a Chris Paul blockbuster that was ultimately vetoed by NBA commissioner David Stern in his role as the Hornets' lead decision-maker.
