Mavs’ O.J. Mayo Already Checked Out?
In fact, (O.J.) Mayo’s lack of production and (Mavs coach Rick) Carlisle’s now-obvious frustration level seemingly increase the likelihood that Wednesday’s game will be his last in a Mavericks uniform.
Of course, this could be the finale for some or all of the nine Mavericks who are in the final year of their contract or, as in Mayo’s case, have optional deals for 2013-14. Mayo holds his option, meaning it’s up to him whether to stay at a $4.2 million salary or declare for free agency.
If his four-turnover, two-point, one-assist showing against Memphis is an indication, perhaps Mayo already has his bags packed. In mind, body and spirit he seemed to be someplace other than American Airlines Center.
