However, Rhode Island coach Jim Harrick persuaded three of his four instructors to allow him to make up his work.
The coach also had Odom work with De Gregorio, who had become a Rams assistant and was the player's closest friend in college.
Odom spent seven seasons with the Lakers, who traded him to the Dallas Mavericks in 2011. He was traded back to the Clippers in 2012 and played briefly in Spain in 2014.
Odom played on the United States national team, winning a bronze medal in the Olympics in 2004 and a gold medal in the FIBA World Championship (known later as the World Cup) in 2010.
Odom was brought in to play as the team's starting power forward, and along with the budding Wade and veteran Eddie Jones shared the scoring load with 17.1 points a game to go with a career high 9.7 rebounds.
The Heat opened the season losing 7 straight games, but ended up playing better and competing for a seed in the playoffs.
Battling injuries, Odom was limited to 56 games in 2006–07, but finished with an average of 15.9 points and 9.8 rebounds per game.
When Bynum was injured in a game against the Memphis Grizzlies in January, Odom returned to the starting lineup.
However, after a Sports Illustrated report questioned his unexpectedly high score of 22 out of 36 in the ACT, the school released him in July 1997 before he ever played a game for them.
He was named to the NBA All-Rookie Team, but twice he violated the league's drug policy in his four seasons with the Clippers.
He signed as a restricted free agent with the Miami Heat, where he played one season in 2003–04 before being traded to the Lakers.
He played college basketball for the University of Rhode Island, earning all-conference honors in his only season in the Atlantic 10 Conference.
He was drafted in the first round of the 1999 NBA draft with the fourth overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers.
