Lamar Odom and the Dallas Mavericks came to terms that it would be best for both the team, and Odom to go their seperate ways. Lamar Odom was only deactivated by the Mavericks Monday not waived, and it would be too late for any team to sign the former Sixth Man of the Year in time for the playoffs anyway. The Mavericks put him as inactive for the rest of the season instead of 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 it's 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.
This season Lamar Odom averaged 6.6 pts and 4.2 rebounds, a career low. And not to mention he stunk it up on the court this year. With the playoffs coming up, Larmar Odom's 6 pts would've been helpful to the Mavericks; even though it's a low from the former sixth man. By next season I'm sure Lamar will be on someone's roster and back to his old self. Could he be a Laker again??
