The Jazz have been identified as a potential third team in ongoing trade discussions involving Lamar Odom and Mo Williams, according to sources.

Utah is willing to acquire Williams as part of a trade that would send Odom to the Clippers.

The trade cannot be completed unless Williams agrees to invoke his $8.5 million player option for 12-13.

The Jazz can use a traded player exception created when they sent Mehmet Okur to the Nets.

Dallas is looking to create cap space by shedding Odom.
