Lamar Odom & Dallas Mavericks Part Ways
10:25 am, April 9th, 2012
Lamar Odom and the Dallas Mavericks are parting ways after less than one season.
The NBA star (and Khloe Kardashian’s husband) has worked out an agreement with the team to cut ties immediately following Easter Weekend discussions.
Rather than being released outright, Odom will be made “inactive” for the remainder of the season.
“The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it’s in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team,” Odom said in a statement.
He continued, “I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”
Odom was traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to Dallas last December but never found his groove with the Mavericks, battling inconsistent play and coping with family issues while posting career-low numbers.
