Darius Johnson-Odom signs with 76ers

Chris Marion Photography

Darius Johnson-Odom, the ex-Laker who helped turn the Armor season around, will get another chance at the NBA. He was signed to a 10-day deal by the Sixers on Friday. Johnson-Odum worked out for the Nets last week but Brooklyn signed Jorge Gutierrez, then of the Canton Charge, to the 10-day deal.

Adrian Wojnarowski first broke the news Thursday

MInutes later, the 24-year-old combo guard out of Marquette seemed to confirm the news in a tweet...

DJO averaged 22 points in 27 games on 43 percent overall and 37 percent from three as well as six assists.  He's been listed as the No. 2 in the D-League Prospect Watch for the last two weeks.

Johnson-Odom is the third Armor player to get called up this season.  Lorenzo Brown, another point guard, was called up by the 76ers before the season began and had his contract guaranteed for the year in January.  Adonis Thomas, who the Nets signed and then cut in training camp, was called up two weeks ago by the Magic. He reaches the end of his second 10-day deal over the weekend.  At that point, they will have to decide whether to keep him for the rest of the season. If they don't, he's likely to return to Springfield.

Gutierrez's 10-day runs out this weekend as well.
