It’s no secret that the LA Clippers are trying to re-acquire Lamar Odom. The problem, apparently, is getting rid of Mo Williams. Per the AP and Salt Lake Tribune: “An agreement is in place that would send Lamar Odom back to Los Angeles for a second chance with the Clippers and reunite Mo Williams with the Utah Jazz, a person with knowledge of the deal said Thursday night. That person spoke on condition of anonymity because a three-team deal between the Dallas Mavericks, Clippers and Jazz is still contingent on Williams exercising his $8.5 million player option for next season. That person said that was expected to happen by Friday. Williams was drafted by the Jazz in 2003, and played 57 games as a rookie before going to Milwaukee, Cleveland and then the Clippers. The Jazz are in position to absorb Williams’ salary without sending a player to Dallas by using a trade exception created last season when they dealt Mehmet Okur to New Jersey. […] A high-ranking Jazz source with direct knowledge of the situation said Thursday evening they’re not aware of Mo Williams expressing a willingness to join the Jazz. Utah remains open to the deal, though.”
