Darius Johnson-Odom Headed to D-League
The Lakers have sent rookie guard Darius Johnson-Odom to the D-Fenders of the NBA Development League.
Johnson-Odom (55th overall pick) was acquired from the Dallas Mavericks on a draft-day deal acquisition. He made his NBA regular-season debut on Friday night against the Golden State Warriors, playing the final 41 seconds.
While with the D-Fenders, Johnson-Odom will still count toward the Lakers’ 15-man roster limit. The team cannot add an additional player in his stead.
