Career highlights and awards

Darius Earvin Johnson-Odom[1] (born September 28, 1989) is an American professional basketball player for Pallacanestro Reggiana of Lega Basket Serie A (LBA). In 2009, he transferred to Marquette University from Hutchinson Community College. As a senior, Johnson-Odom was named first-team All-Big East.[2]

Player profile

Johnson-Odom is listed as a 6'2" tall (1.88 m) and 100 kg (220 lb.) point guard-shooting guard.[3] He was measured at 6'3" tall with shoes on at the 2012 NBA Draft combine.[4]

Professional career

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.[5] Johnson-Odom was assigned to the Lakers' D-League team, the Los Angeles D-Fenders, several times during 2012–13 season.[6]

On January 7, 2013, Johnson-Odom was waived by the Lakers.[7] 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.[8] During his time with the Lakers, however, Johnson-Odom set the NBA record for most career field goal attempts without scoring a point, shooting 0-of-14 on field goals in his 21 minutes of NBA play.[9]

On January 24, 2013, Johnson-Odom joined Spartak St. Petersburg of Russia for the remainder of the 2012–13 season.[5]

He joined the Boston Celtics for the 2013 Orlando Summer League.[10] On September 25, 2013, he re-signed with the Lakers.[11] However, he was later waived again on October 16.[12] On October 18, 2013, he signed with the Sichuan Blue Whales of China.[13] 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.[14]

On March 14, 2014, he signed a 10-day contract with the Philadelphia 76ers.[15] On March 24, 2014, he was not offered a second 10-day contract after his first 10-day contract expired.[16]

On August 2, 2014, he signed with Pallacanestro Cantù of Italy for the 2014–15 season.[17]

On June 14, 2015, Johnson-Odom signed with Trabzonspor of the Turkey for the 2015–16 season.[18] On December 28, 2015, he left Trabzonspor and signed with Olympiacos Piraeus of Greece for the rest of the season.[19]

On June 11, 2016, Johnson-Odom signed with Dinamo Sassari of Italy for the 2016–17 season.[20] On February 1, 2017, he left Sassari and signed with Vanoli Cremona for the rest of the season.[21][22] On September 28, 2017, he re-signed with Cremona.[23]

On September 24, 2018, Johnson-Odom signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves.[24] 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.[25] On October 13, 2018, he was waived by the Timberwolves.[26] Johnson-Odom was added to the Iowa Wolves opening night roster.[27] Appearing in 49 games, Johnson-Odom led the 2018–19 Wolves in points per game among players of any service time, putting up 22.5 points per game.[28]

On March 25, 2019, he has signed with Reggio Emilia in the Italian Lega Basket Serie A (LBA).[29] On July 25, 2019, he extended his contract with Reggio Emilia for 2 more years.[30]
