Odom, who played 14 NBA seasons and won two titles with the Lakers, had previously signed a contract with the Mighty Sports Philippines to play in the Dubai International Basketball Championship, which is currently underway. Upon conclusion of that tournament, Odom will return to the United States as he prepares for the BIG3 draft.
The 2019 BIG3 season will get underway in June, and they expect a significant influx of talent as the league has expanded from eight teams to 12 this year.
