Former Commodore power forward Rod Odom will get to live out his NBA dream with with a former teammate. Odom will join the Golden State Warriors for their NBA Summer League campaign. Former Vandy teammate Festus Ezeli will also particpate, having missed last season with a knee injury. The team's first game will be played against the Charlotte Hornets in Las Vegas on July 11th.
Odom will be a long shot to make the team, but his stellar college career and shooting ability will be enough to get a few looks from team officials. Odom scored 985 points in 134 games in a Vanderbilt uniform, good for an average of 7.35 points per game. Odom was stellar from three point land, nailing nearly 39 percent of shots from beyond the arc. Odom's invitation to the Warriors summer league continues the pipeline from West End to Oakland. Ezeli was drafted by the Warriors in 2012, and Lance Goulbourne was a free agent signee of the team in the same year.
