The Clippers have been in trade talks with the Mavericks about acquiring Lamar Odom, according to sources.

A deal could depend on the willingness of a third team to take on the contract of Mo Williams, which would allow Dallas to preserve cap space.

The Mavericks have also been discussing pushing back Friday's deadline to buyout the final season of Odom's contract for $2.4 million with his agent Jeff Schwartz.

Mo Williams has maintained all season that he plans to exercise his $8.5 million player option for the 2012-13 season.

The Lakers, according to sources, have expressed interest in Williams and have a trade exception that was acquired from Dallas for Odom.
