Mavs Trade for Odom
Two days after getting rebuffed by the NBA in an apparent deal for Chris Paul, the Lakers sent Forward Lamar Odom to Dallas for the Mavericks' first-round pick in the 2012 amateur draft.
Odom, 32, was acquired by the Lakers in 2004 as part of the Shaquille O'Neal trade.
He won the sixth-man-of-the-year award last season after averaging 14.4 points and 8.7 rebounds.
The Mavericks lost free-agent Forward Caron butler to the clippers a few days ago and would be able to comfortably restock their frontcourt with Odom.
