Former Commodores Lance Goulbourne and Rod Odom reunite in NBA Summer League

Posted on 17 July 2014 by Allen


Two dynamic former Commodores Lance Goulbourne and Rod Odom have reunited in the NBA Summer League. Both players signed with the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors already have former Vanderbilt Center Festus Ezeli on the roster after drafting him in the first round in the 2012 NBA Draft. Ezeli was assigned to the Summer League and will likely see how he progressed after missing the entire 2013-14 season.

Before signing with the Warriors Summer League team Gouldborne had been the starting forward for the Goyang Orions of the KBL. Then in March he signed with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA D-league. Averaging 12.6 points and 8.1 rebounds for Santa Cruz the former Commodore was invited to the NBA D-League’s fifth-annual Elite Mini Camp in Chicago. After the camp it was announced on July 3rd that Goulbourne was signed to the Summer League to play for the Warriors in Las Vegas. But once Summer League play began he was ruled out for the season due to an injury to his wrist. The injury apparently occurred before the season and according to various reports is a fracture and he will miss the entire season.

Odom had a really good season at Vanderbilt as a Senior. When Eric McClellan was kicked off the team early in the season Odom stepped up and averaged 13.6 points. He was named to the All-SEC Second Team and was on fire, scoring 26 points to upset Tennessee in Memorial Gym in February.

Odom had a good pre-draft workout for the Warriors but was no drafted. In late June it was announced that he had signed with the Warriors first Summer League team. In Golden State’s first game the former Dore sharpshooter played 3 minutes scoring no points in a win over Charlotte. He has not played in any other games.

Hopefully Ezeli can get healthy and get some minutes in to shake the cobwebs off this Summer and help Odom make the roster next year.
