Darius Earvin Johnson-Odom (born September 28, 1989) is an American professional basketball player for the Iowa Wolves of the NBA G League. In 2009, he transferred to Marquette University from Hutchinson Community College. As a senior, Johnson-Odom was named first-team All-Big East.
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. Johnson-Odom was assigned to the Lakers' D-League team, the Los Angeles D-Fenders, several times during 2012–13 season.
On January 7, 2013, Johnson-Odom was waived by the Lakers. It was the final day for NBA teams to cut players on non-guaranteed contracts before their contracts became guaranteed 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.
He joined the Boston Celtics for the 2013 Orlando Summer League. On September 25, 2013, he re-signed with the Lakers. However, he was later waived again on October 16. On October 18, 2013, he signed with the Sichuan Blue Whales of China. In November 2013, just four games into the season, he left the Blue Whales.
On January 3, 2014, he was acquired by the Springfield Armor.
On June 14, 2015, Johnson-Odom signed with Trabzonspor of the Turkey for the 2015–16 season. On December 28, 2015, he left Trabzonspor and signed with Olympiacos Piraeus of Greece for the rest of the season.
On June 11, 2016, Johnson-Odom signed with Dinamo Sassari of Italy for the 2016–17 season. On February 1, 2017, he left Sassari and signed with Vanoli Cremona for the rest of the season. On September 28, 2017, he re-signed with Cremona.
On September 24, 2018, Johnson-Odom signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves. This came after it was announced that an Italian anti-doping court suspended him for eight months after he tested positive to a THC test on May 6, 2018. On October 13, 2018, he was waived by the Timberwolves. Johnson-Odom was added to the Iowa Wolves opening night roster.
