Jazz reportedly in trade talks with Mavericks, Clippers

ESPN's Marc Stein reported Thursday the Jazz are involved in trade talks with Dallas and the Los Angeles Clippers as part of a three-team deal centered around Lamar Odom.

Utah would reportedly receive guard Mo Williams, who began his career with the Jazz and was drafted No. 47 overall by Utah in 2003. Odom would join the Clipers, while the Mavericks would shed the often-troubled Odom and his $8.2 million salary.

A source with close ties to a player mentioned in the reported trade said Thursday they were aware the Jazz were interested in acquiring Williams.

A high-ranking Jazz source said they hadn't heard anything about the reported trade and asserted the team was focused on the 2012 NBA Draft.

Another team source wouldn't comment when reached but didn't deny the potential trade.

Williams holds an $8.5 million player option with the Clippers next season. The Jazz could absrob Williams' contract with a $10 million trade exception acquired in the Mehmet Okur deal.

Mark Bartelstein, Williams' agent, represents the Jazz's Gordon Hayward, Earl Watson, Jeremy Evans and DeMarre Carroll.

Bartelstein did not immediately respond to a message about the reported trade.

Williams, 29, has averaged 13.8 points and 4.9 assists during a nine-year career with four teams. He averaged 13.2 points while shooting 38.9 percent behind the 3-point line for the Clippers last season, but often played out of position while dealing with a rotation that featured Chris Paul and Eric Bledsoe.
