Mo Williams will pick up '12-'13 option and accept trade to Utah, league source says.
Williams' decision completes trade sending Lamar Odom to Clippers without Mavs having to take back salary.
If Clips had been unable to find a home for Williams, they would've had to buy Odom out for $2.4M today.
"Only paperwork" left to be done on trade sending Odom to Clippers to Jazz, source says.
That's "only paperwork" left to be done on trade sending Odom to Clippers to and Williams to Jazz. My bad.
Of course, it's Mavs who would've had to buy out Odom today if Williams didn't accept deal.
really good player named "Negative $2.4M." RT @kd4mvp35 @KBergCBS Who is going to Dallas?
RT @NBAPR NBA and NBPA reach arbitration settlement agreement of proceeding on behalf of Billups, Hickson, Lin and Novak
RT @NBAPR Under settlement, union agreed to limit ruling by arbitrator in exchange for the league's agreement to drop its appeal.
RT @NBAPR Rule now is that players claimed from waivers will have the same Early Bird rights as if they had been traded (cont.)
RT @NBAPR ... but will not have full Bird rights unless they are claimed through the league's amnesty procedure.
League announced that they reached an agreement on Bird status of Lin, Novak, Hickson & Billups, ending the appeal. Most importantly,
...Lin is now Early-Bird, so the Knicks are no longer in big trouble. They will now be able to use Bird exception to match offers for Lin,
...putting their MLE back in their own control, and allowing them to avoid a hard cap at $74 million. While the appeal was pending, it was
...back to status quo with Bird rights, and Lin & others would have opened free agency as non-Bird free agents -- exposing Knicks to offers
...for Lin over $3M and subjecting them to the hard cap.
