Lakers News: Darius Johnson-Odom Is Released By Team

Utah Jazz v Los Angeles LakersAfter five preseason games, the Lakers have made their third cut of the preseason. Reserve point guard Darius Johnson-Odom was released by the team as announced via press release by the team.

Johnson was picked by the Mavericks with the 55th overall pick in 2012 and was acquired by the Lakers that night. Johnson-Odom played in four games for the Lakers last season and in 13 games for the Lakers D-League Affiliate where he averaged 21 points, five rebounds and five assists.

Johnson-Odom’s release should come as a surprise to no one as the Lakers are already log-jammed at point guard with Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar and Steve Blake and still have to cut their roster down to 15 players.

With Johnson-Odom out of the contention, the final two spots will come down to Ryan Kelly, Elias Harris and Marcus Landry. Landry has struggled thus far in the preseason while Harris and Kelly are younger guys the team can develop through the D-League. While Mike D’Antoni hasn’t hinted at which two guys he’s going to keep out of the three, it wouldn’t be surprising if Landry ends up being the odd man out.
