The Los Angeles Lakers have waived former Marquette guard Darius Johnson-Odom, trimming their training camp roster to 16 players.

The Lakers announced the move Wednesday.

Johnson-Odom was a second-round draft pick by Los Angeles in 2012.

He played in four games for the Lakers last season, spending most of the year in the D-League and Russia.

Johnson-Odom played in three preseason games with the Lakers this fall.

The Lakers are in the middle of a weeklong trip to China for two exhibition games against the Golden State Warriors.
