Lakers acquire Mavs draft pick

The Los Angeles Lakers acquired the draft rights to Darius Johnson-Odom from the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for cash considerations.

Johnson-Odom, chosen 55th overall, finished second in the Big East in scoring last season by putting in 18.3 points per game in a shooting guard role for Marquette.

"I want to be that guy that has that spark off the bench. Brings energy on the defensive end. Knock down open shots," Johnson said on the Lakers' Twitter feed.

The Lakers also selected 7-foot Gonzaga center Robert Sacre with the 60th and final pick in the draft.
