Darius Earvin Johnson-Odom[1] (born September 28, 1989) is an American professional basketball player.

Johnson-Odom was born in Raleigh, North Carolina. In 2009, he transferred to Marquette University from Hutchinson Community College. As a senior, Johnson-Odom was named to the Preseason All-Big East First Team.[2]

Professional career[edit]

Johnson-Odom spent three seasons at Marquette University before he was selected 55th overall in the 2012 NBA draft by the Dallas Mavericks, who immediately traded him to the Los Angeles Lakers.[3] Johnson-Odom was assigned to the Lakers' D-League team, the Los Angeles D-Fenders, several times during 2012–13 season.[4]

On January 7, 2013, Johnson-Odom was waived by the Lakers.[5] It was the final day for NBA teams to cut players on non-guaranteed contracts before their contracts became locked for the season. He played four games and had just 6 minutes in total for the Lakers, spending most of his time in the D-League where he was the D-Fenders' leading scorer, averaging 21 points per game.[6]

On January 24, 2013, Johnson-Odom joined Spartak St. Petersburg of Russia for the remainder of the 2012–13 season.[3]

He joined the Boston Celtics for the 2013 Orlando Summer League.[7] On September 25, 2013, he re-signed with the Lakers.[8] However, he was later waived again on October 16.[9] On October 18, 2013, he signed with the Sichuan Blue Whales of China.[10] In November 2013, just 5 games into the season, he left the Blue Whales.

On January 3, 2014, he was acquired by the Springfield Armor.[11]

On March 14, 2014, he signed a 10-day contract with the Philadelphia 76ers.[12] On March 24, 2014, he was not offered a second 10-day contract after his first 10-day contract expired.[13]
