Mavericks, F Odom agree to part ways
Odom struggled in Dallas averaging just 6.6 points per game
Lamar Odom's days with the Dallas Mavericks have come to an end.
The two sides agreed to mutually part ways -- although Odom will be listed as inactive, rather than being released, ESPN.com reported on Monday morning.
"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. "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."
In February, Yahoo! Sports reported that Odom asked the team for a buyout but was denied by owner Mark Cuban.
Acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers during offseason, Odom has been a bust in Big D. The team even considered Odom for a demotion to the NBA Development League.
The reigning NBA Sixth Man of the Year has averaged just 6.6 points after putting up 14.4 with the Lakers last season.
