Lamar Odom and Dallas Mavericks Part Ways in 'Mutual Split'

lamar odom quits dallas

Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom has decided to walk away from the team effective immediately in a decision that had the blessing of team owner Mark Cuban.

The husband of reality star Khloe Kardashian issued 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."

Odom has had a rough year with his career stats at an all time low.  The Mavericks will list him as "inactive" for the remainder of the season, at which time they will be allowed to trade the former L.A. Lakers player.

Lamar and Khloe recently leased a condo in Dallas with plans to begin shooting footage for the family reality show.  We're guessing they'll beat feet back to Los Angeles where their support system is continuing to make big bucks for the Kardashian brand.
