Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom won't be going to the NBA Development League after all. Although originially headed to play for the Texas Legends, Odom has been summoned to rejoin the Mavericks for their Saturday game against the Utah Jazz.

Odom is averaging 7.7 points and 4.5 rebounds in 32 games for the Mavericks this season.
