The team's best shooter, Darius Johnson-Odom, started out in a horrific shooting slump. Johnson-Odom was a blisteringly good shooter in 2009/10, hitting 47% of his threes, but hit only 13 of his first 50 this season, and has shot only 36% from there in total. He has nonetheless countered that with an improved dribble-drive game; undersized at 6'2, but decently athletic, very strong and fearless, Johnson can make shots around the basket better than he used to, and is always looking to get to the foul line when around the basket. That same combination of physical tools makes him quite the defensive combo guard, too.
In his first pro season, Johnson-Odom confirmed what was known - he can score, either by throwing himself thorough unafraid at the basket in the pursuit of contact, or through his streaky yet explosive jumpshot. His height, 6'3, is his main disadvantage. But if you're good, then you're good, and at some point height becomes arbitrary. Johnson-Odom has NBA talent. More importantly here, Johnson-Odom has everything you need to be a sensational summer leaguer. He should dominate here.
Darius Johnson-Odom - Johnson-Odom replaced Flynn with Sichuan, and appeared in four games for the team. However, despite scoring 82 points on 48 shots and 58% shooting in 120 minutes, the last placed Blue Whales replaced him last month, and he is again unsigned.
Note: Non-US teams that the player

that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
