UAAP stars join NBA vet Odom in PH squad

/ 05:25 AM December 20, 2018

It looks like Mighty Sports’ participation in the Dubai International Basketball Tournament will be more than just a comeback tour for former Lakers star Lamar Odom.

The team is looking to be highly competitive this time.


The Philippines’ representative to the tournament has surrounded the veteran Odom with a solid cast of stars, including well-loved Barangay Ginebra import Justin Brownlee and UAAP standouts Juan Gomez de Liaño of UP and Santi Santillan of La Salle.

The team, which will go up against Middle East clubs, also tapped American Randolph Morris, an import for China pro league squad Beijing Ducks.


Odom announced his plan to play for Mighty Sports through his Instagram account, adding that he is excited to be given an opportunity to represent the Philippines.

PBA D-League standout Gab Banal and former PBA ace Joseph Yeo will bolster Mighty.

Odom is scheduled to arrive in January next year.
