|Lamar Odom Traded To Clippers|
Lamar Odom is going, going, back, back to Cali, Cali. Not with the Lakers, but with the team that drafted him back in 1999, the Clippers. Odom was part of a four-team trade yesterday that will see the Clippers send Mo Williams to the Utah Jazz, Odom will go back to the Clips while the Dallas Mavericks received draft rights to Tadija Dragicevic from Utah along with cash considerations from the Houston Rockets.
Houston got the draft rights to second-round pick Furkan Aldemir in the deal and the Jazz got the draft rights to Shan Foster.
The deal had been agreed to in principle on Thursday but was dependent on Williams agreeing to opt-in to the final year of his deal and remain with the Jazz. The final-year is worth $8.5 million.
Williams is also returning to the team that drafted him, he was taken by the Jazz in the 2003 Draft but played only one season there.
Odom returns to the Clippers after a poor showing in Dallas after being traded by the Lakers prior to the season, the Clips hope that a return to his home will spur the former Sixth Man of the Year winner to his past form.
