The agent for Mo Williams confirmed Friday that his client will be reunited with the Utah Jazz as part of a three-team deal that will send Lamar Odom back to Los Angeles for a second chance with the Clippers.
Mark Bartelstein said the deal was finalized about 3:45 p.m. MDT and Williams is expected to hold a news conference in Salt Lake City next week.
The Jazz drafted him in 2003 but allowed him to leave after one season, a decision that general manager Kevin O'Connor said was the worst he ever made.

Dallas faced a Friday deadline on a $2.4 million buyout of Odom's $8.2 million option for next season.

The year was 1999. Lamar Odom was the fourth pick in the NBA Draft, joining a young Los Angeles Clippers team which had just won a horrendously low nine games in the Lockout-shortened 1998-99 season. Whilst the arrival of Odom only resulted in a 15 win season for the severely talent-deprived Clippers, things were starting to look up for LA's other team.
The following season...
