Lamar Odom Rumors: Clippers Interested In Possible Deal With Mo Williams

According to a report from the Los Angeles Times Broderick Turner, the Los Angeles Clippers are interested in bringing back former Clipper Lamar Odom as part of a deal for point guard Mo Williams, and could be getting a deal done sooner than later.

The Clippers have had conversations with the Dallas Mavericks about bringing back forward Lamar Odom to the team that drafted him, according to several people who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

The Clippers would trade Mo Williams to the Mavericks for Odom, the people said, but Dallas wants L.A. to get a third team involved before discussions can continue.

Dallas has a Friday deadline to buy out the final year of Odom's $8.2-million contract for $2.4 million. Williams would be paid $8.5 million in the final year of his contract, so the deal would work under the collective bargaining agreement.

Odom spent much of last season not playing basketball after behavior problems and other injuries kept him off the court for most of the year, while played lackluster ball when he was in uniform. Hopefully a move back to L.A. could spark his fire once again.
