Grading the Lamar Odom Trade for Each Team

Mo Williams will go back to where he was originally drafted.

NBA.com reports that the four-team trade that will send Lamar Odom to the Clippers and Mo Williams to the Jazz is complete now that Williams has exercised his player option. 

With that, the first veteran trade of the post-NBA draft off-season is completed, and Odom goes back to where he became a two-time NBA champion, but this time he'll be wearing Clipper's red and blue instead of Lakers yellow.

Mo Williams' first team was the Utah Jazz, and with his contract expiring after next season and turning 30 in December, it could be his last opportunity to be a starting point guard. 

Dallas, meanwhile, made a big move toward having the space to acquire Deron Williams by getting rid of the contract. The Houston Rockets sent cash considerations to the Dallas Mavericks and received the Clippers' second-round pick in forward Furkan Aldemir.

Here are the grades for each team involved in the trade.
