Report: Odom going from Mavs to LAC; Mo Williams to Jazz


Posted Jun 28 2012 7:35PM - Updated Jun 29 2012 6:26PM

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The agent for Mo Williams confirmed Friday that his client will be reunited with the Utah Jazz as part of a three-team deal that will send Lamar Odom back to Los Angeles for a second chance with the Clippers.

Mark Bartelstein said the deal was finalized about 3:45 p.m. MDT and Williams is expected to hold a news conference in Salt Lake City next week.

The Jazz drafted him in 2003 but allowed him to leave after one season, a decision that general manager Kevin O'Connor said was the worst he ever made.

While there was no official confirmation from the teams yet, Bartelstein said it was done.

Dallas faced a Friday deadline on a $2.4 million buyout of Odom's $8.2 million option for next season.

Williams' decision to exercise his $8.5 million player option cleared the way for the deal.
