Lamar Odom: Parts Ways With Mavs

Update: Odom and the Mavericks have agreed to part ways, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Recommendation: Odom had a tough time fitting into the rotation and Dallas, and after he played just four minutes in Saturday's game, the Mavericks decided it was best to move on. This is noteworthy given Odom's name recognition, but considering he averaged just 6.6 points in fewer than 21 minutes per game, his release shouldn't have a negative effect on the Mavericks. It's not clear what Odom's next step will be, but it appears likely he will try to land someplace he is comfortable, possibly in Los Angeles or Miami.
