Mavs recall Lamar Odom from D-League

— The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have recalled forward Lamar Odom from the Texas Legends of the NBA Development League.

Odom (6-10, 230) was assigned to the Legends yesterday but did not see any action with the team. He has played in 32 games with the Mavericks and is averaging 7.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 21.4 minutes. He is shooting .357 (89-249 FGs) from the field, .259 (22-85 3FGs) from 3-point range and .577 (45-78 FTs) from the free throw line. The 12-year pro has missed the last four games due to a family matter.

The Mavericks acquired Odom on Dec. 11, 2011 along with a 2012 second round pick and other second round considerations in 2013 from the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for a protected first round draft pick.

Odom is scheduled to be in uniform tonight as the Mavericks host the Utah Jazz at the American Airlines Center.
