Report: Mavs pick Darius Johnson-Odom headed to Lakers in exchange for cash

Publish date:

After their attempts to trade into the first round failed, the Los Angeles Lakers settled for buying the 55th overall pick from the Dallas Mavericks -- a pick that originally belonged to L.A.

Dallas used the pick on Marquette guard Darius Johnson-Odom, an undersized, stocky two-guard who averaged 18.3 points as a senior and who presumably will get a chance to make the Lakers.
