Mmm I understand it...
Mo could refuse the player option to go to another Nba team to take more than our MLE.

If we trade Gasol for two good players ( Smith + Teague, for example ), Mo'll can arrive to win something with us. I think that there aren't other contenders wich want to give him his 8.5mill.
Be the change that u wanna see in the world.

I think Lakers traded Norm Nixon to the Clippers

not a lot of trades has happened with our Pacific Division rivals in recent years. I dont remember any with GSW, Clips, SAC, PHX (Robert Horry in 97 is last I remember) before they did the divisions we used to be in same division as POR and no trades with them either.




Beat me to it. We traded for Byron Scott (or the rights to him, I can't remember.) I was thinking it was Jamall Wilkes, but I think you are correct, it was Norm Nixon.

It was Nixon to the San Diego Clippers for the rights to Byron Scott in 84. Wilkes joined the Clippers after his contract ran out with the Lakers in 85

Well no wonder I don't remember the trade with the Clippers, I was born in '84. :man10: So there hasn't been a single Lakers/Clippers trade in my lifetime, wow.

Finally, Mo Williams has until Saturday to exercise his $8.5 million player option for 2012-13 and he will pick it up instead of going into the 2012 free agent market. Williams wants to start at point guard and his agent, Mark Bartelstein, is looking for teams that need someone to fill that position.


I know of a place just a stones throw away.

Mo / Sessions PG rotation would be phenomenal.

http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/8108044/sources-utah-jazz-help-lamar-odom-los-angeles-clippers-deal
The Utah Jazz have emerged as the potential third team in the Los Angeles Clippers' ongoing trade discussions to acquire Lamar Odom from the Dallas Mavericks, according to sources close to the process.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Jazz are willing to take on Mo Williams in a three-team trade scenario that would send Odom to the Clippers and enable the Mavericks to shed Odom's salary without taking back any salary.

The ball now is now in Williams' court. The trade cannot be completed unless Williams agrees to invoke his $8.5 million player option for next season by Saturday's deadline, which means that the 29-year-old is essentially deciding if he wants to return to the Jazz  where he began his career in 2003-04 -- or test free agency this summer.

The Jazz can absorb Williams' salary without sending a player to the Mavericks by using a trade exception created by last season's trade of Mehmet Okur to New Jersey.

The deadline for the trade to be completed, though, is realistically Friday, because that's the deadline in Odom's contract by which point Dallas must either pay $2.4 million to buy out Odom's $8.2 million salary for next season or have him on the books for 2012-13.

So this trade basically comes down to Mo. If he opts in, I guess this trade goes through

Trade rests on Mo Williams' willingness to accept $8.5M player option for next season to return to Jazz or go to free agency this summer

I wouldnt be surprised if Lakers expressed interest to be the 3rd wheel in this trade to make it work but DAL/LAC didnt want to help us and looked elsewhere. Not hard to find a taker for Mo. UTA will probably give up a future 2nd round or something insignificant which the Lakers couldve offered as well

Agreed completely. I would bet that the Lakers volunteered and the two turned them down in favor of someone they don't care about.

I doubt we even had any serious interest in using the TPE right now without already having a move in place to reduce salary.

It's about as likely as winning one with Joe Johnson on the roster with Kobe at over 20 million a year. :man12:

Why not? It's not like he'd be our #1 option. He'd be our fourth option behind Kobe, Drew, and Pau.

We should make that trade, resign Sessions, Hill, and Ebanks. Amnesty Blake. Sign Antawn Jamison to the mini MLE.

Mo Williams (24)/Ramon Sessions (24)
Kobe Bryant (33)/Andrew Goudelock (15)
Metta World Peace (24)/Devin Ebanks (15), Antawn Jamison (9)
Pau Gasol (33)/Antawn Jamison (15)

Mo Williams To The Jazz?

The Utah Jazz have emerged as the potential third team in the Los Angeles Clippers' ongoing trade discussions to acquire Lamar Odom from the Dallas Mavericks, according to sources close to the process.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Jazz are willing to take on Mo Williams in a three-team trade scenario that would send Odom to the Clippers and enable the Mavericks to shed Odom's salary without taking back any salary.

The ball now is in Williams' court. The trade cannot be completed unless Williams agrees to invoke his $8.5 million player option for next season by Saturday's deadline, which means that the 29-year-old is essentially deciding if he wants to return to the Jazz  where he began his career in 2003-04 -- or test free agency this summer.

Williams' agent, Mark Bartelstein, told ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard: "Mo and I are looking at a lot of different things right now. He'll make his decision in the next day or two."

The Jazz can absorb Williams' salary without sending a player to the Mavericks by using a trade exception created by last season's trade of Mehmet Okur to New Jersey.

The deadline for the trade to be completed, though, is realistically Friday, because that's the deadline in Odom's contract by which point Dallas must either pay $2.4 million to buy out Odom's $8.2 million salary for next season or have him on the books for 2012-13.

Earlier this month, with Odom's buyout deadline looming, Dallas officials green-lighted Odom's agent, Jeff Schwartz, to try to find a new home for Odom via trade. The Mavericks and Schwartz also have discussed pushing the deadline back into July if an Odom trade can't be struck by Friday.

The Mavericks' interest in an Odom deal is purely to gain financial flexibility, which necessitates a third team to take on Williams. One possibility discussed, sources said, was Dallas taking back former Mavericks point guard Devin Harris to complete a three-team deal with the Clippers and Jazz, but the Mavericks are trying to avoid absorbing any salary in the move.

If no trade can be struck, either this week or before an adjusted deadline, Dallas is expected to eventually buy Odom out and make him a free agent, with big-market teams such as Miami and New York also planning to pursue him in that scenario.

Although Williams is a former All-Star coming off a solid season with the Clippers in which he often played out of position at shooting guard, Dallas has little need for him given its long-planned pursuits of marquee free agents Deron Williams and Steve Nash and its oft-stated desire to bring back championship-winning point guard Jason Kidd when free agency starts at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.

The Mavericks are one of two finalists, along with the Brooklyn Nets, for Dallas-area native Deron Williams and have long planned to pursue the re-signing of Nash -- who left Dallas for Phoenix in the summer of 2004 -- in the event Williams decides to stay with the Nets.

Sources told ESPN.com on Tuesday that another team to express interest in Mo Williams is the Los Angeles Lakers, who still have a trade exception big enough to absorb Williams' contract that they created when they dealt Odom to Dallas.

Odom, meanwhile, is eager to return to his adopted home of Los Angeles to resume his career after what amounts to a lost season after his trade from the Lakers to the Mavericks in December.

The move to Dallas followed Odom's inclusion in the Lakers' original three-team trade with New Orleans and Houston that would have landed him with the Hornets and placed Chris Paul in the same Lakers backcourt as Kobe Bryant. But that trade was called off by NBA commissioner David Stern, who has insisted he took that step as the Hornets' lead decision-maker at the time because the Hornets were owned by the league. A few days later, Stern signed off on the Hornets' deal to send Paul to the Clippers.

Drafted by the Clippers in 1999 and a winner of two championship rings in the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons with the Lakers, Odom never fit with the Mavericks and left the team by mutual consent before the playoffs began after a nightmarish three months.

Odom has been working out on his own ever since and will attempt to earn a spot on the team bound for the London Olympics next month when he reports to Team USA training camp in Las Vegas.
