The split was definitely coming. What's interesting is that they aren't just releasing him. Seems like they want to hold on to him as a potential trade chip for the off-season.
I think it is because they missed the window where they could release him and take a lesser cap hit. By trading him for a pick I am assuming they either want the pick or want to mitigate the cap hit that L.O. is going to cause.
Glad to see that Odom is gone because he has been a joke all season long. He stunk it up non stop, put out absolutely minimal effort all season, and then wondered why people booed him. I hope he comes back next year and sucks just as bad as he did this year. Brandan Wright is much more deserving of his playing time and shows every time he hits the court he wants to play for the Mavs and wants to show everyone he wasn't a lottery bust.
