Lamar Odom officially assigned to Legends

The paperwork is in and Lamar Odom is now a member of the Texas Legends, the Mavericks announced.

Last season's NBA Sixth Man of the Year will play for the Frisco-based D-League affiliate of the Mavs on Saturday night against the Austin Toros.

It was Odom's idea to take his eventual return to the Mavs to the Legends first. He's expected to report for shootaround Saturday morning.
