The Lakers waived guard Darius Johnson-Odom on Wednesday. Johnson-Odom was originally drafted by the team with the 55th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft but was cut during the 2012-13 season by the Lakers. He rejoined the organization for training camp and made three preseason appearances averaging 3.7 points and 1.3 assists in 8.2 minutes a game. The Lakers now have 16 players under contract 11 with guaranteed deals. Of the five who aren't guaranteed both Shawne Williams and Elias Harris have $100000 of their contracts locked in. The most the Lakers can carry into the regular season is 15 players. Though the team appears likely to bring more than the minimum of 13 there's no guarantee it will go with 15.
