Lakers News: Team Waives Darius Johnson-Odom

djoThe moves keep coming for the Lakers. After it was announced that they lost their three best big men on Sunday night, it was announced on Monday that they have released rookie Darius Johnson-Odom.

Johnson-Odom, who was the 55th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, was acquired by the Lakers from the Dallas Mavericks on the night of the draft. He only appeared in four games for the Lakers this season, where he totaled four rebounds and one assist in six minutes of game time.

The move is most likely a precursor to bigger moves from a struggling team. Although his contract would have been guaranteed had he lasted until Tuesday, so it could just be a small money saving opportunity for the team.

Regardless, it looks very much like the Lakers are clearing roster space for either a free agent signing or a potential trade.

At least things are always interesting in Los Angeles.
