Grizzlies Unlikely to Extend O.J. Mayo?
Although (O.J.) Mayo is eligible to negotiate a long-term contact extension with Memphis by Wednesday, the Griz aren’t compelled to agree to a deal or trade him at the moment.
“It remains to be seen whether something happens or not,” Griz general manager Chris Wallace said about a Mayo contract extension. “If it doesn’t happen I wouldn’t read much into it. We didn’t extend Rudy and resigned him. It’s a floating situation. I wouldn’t say (Mayo) is a lock to be with us after this year and I wouldn’t say he isn’t. There’s so much ground to be covered between now and July.”
Meanwhile, Mayo keeps paving the wave for a productive season.
“I’m happy in Memphis. Don’t get it twisted,” Mayo said. “I love the foundation we’ve built. This is my comfort. I’m good.”
