Lakers send Darius Johnson-Odom to D-Fenders

Lakers send Darius Johnson-Odom to D-Fenders

Quote:
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.

At 6-foot-2, Johnson-Odom is an undersized shooting guard with tremendous athleticism.

Coach Mike Brown, before his firing, noted that Johnson-Odom needed a lot more seasoning (both offensively and defensively) before he would be ready for regular minutes.

The D-Fenders begin their regular season Nov. 28.

Great for him. Hopefully they can teach him to run the point because he's too small to be a shooter. He's very athletic and that's needed.

The kid is a great athlete. I hope he can develop into a NBA player now.

It'd be great if he develops into a combo guard.
