The Philadelphia 76ers are really, really good at this whole tanking thing.

As if losing 18 games in a row wasn’t enough, the Sixers are doing more to solidify themselves as the worst team in the league. Philadelphia has signed former Laker guard Darius Johnson-Odom to a 10-day contract.

The 24-year-old former Marquette Golden Eagle has spent the season playing for the Springfield Armor. Johnson-Odom is averaging 22 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 6.1 assists per game in 27 games this season. In the 2012-2013 season, Johnson-Odom played four games with the Lakers, but didn’t record a single point.

But at this point, the 76ers are willing to try anything. Michael Carter-Williams, Tony Wroten, and Thaddeus Young are the only three players that are any sort of future building blocks -even though Henry Sims has been playing extremely well as of late- so why not try something new.

Jason Collins recently signed a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets and has now been signed through the rest of the season, DJO could be next in line for a similar deal if he plays well.
