Lamar Odom was just added to the Dallas Mavericks lineup, but it doesn't look like he'll be staying on it very long. He has just released a statement saying he is going to  "step away from the team" ... effective immediately.

He added, "I'm sorry that things didn't work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs' organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship."

ESPN reports, Odom will be listed as "inactive" for the rest of the season, which means he will still be eligible for traded after the season.

It's still uncertain what all of this means for Odum's girlfriend Khloe Kardashian and their reality series, "Khloe and Lamar". The couple had just taken out a lease on a $7,500 per month condo and were slated to start shooting the new season of their show in Dallas.
