DALLAS (AP) — Lamar Odom is done in Dallas, a mutual decision that comes with the defending NBA champion Mavericks trying to make sure they get back in the playoffs.

General manager Donnie Nelson said Monday it's been a difficult and frustrating year for Odom, the team and the fans and that it's time to move on. The Mavericks have nine games left in the lockout-shortened season and are seventh in the Western Conference standings.

Odom has been placed on the inactive list and will not be with the Mavericks the rest of the season.

The NBA's reigning Sixth Man of the Year was traded to Dallas after the Los Angeles Lakers initially tried to send him to New Orleans in the Chris Paul deal that was nixed by the league.
