O.J. Mayo to Become Free Agent
Dallas Mavericks shooting guard O.J. Mayo said he would decline the player option for the second season of his contract, deciding to become a free agent for the second consecutive summer.
Mayo, who could have returned to Dallas for $4.2 million, said he hopes to work out a long-term deal with the Mavs.
“Getting something long term, locking something in is what I think is best for me,” Mayo said Thursday after his exit interview with coach Rick Carlisle and president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson.
