Lakers Trade Lamar Odom To The Mavericks

Lamar Odom

The Lakers, who get a first-round draft pick in 2012 from Dallas, lose a versatile big man who was a strong locker-room presence and last season's sixth man of the year.The Lakers made a trade Saturday, but it wasn't for Chris Paul or Dwight Howard.

Senh: The Lakers are officially rebuilding. They kinda gave him away for nothing much in return. Sure, next year's draft is supposed to be deep, but Lamar Odom is the sixth man of the year.
