Source: Mavericks to Sign O.J. Mayo
The Dallas Mavericks and shooting guard O.J. Mayo have agreed to a two year deal with a player option in the second year, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
The third overall pick in the 2008 draft broke the news on his Twitter account, saying, “I will be signing with dallas! #Mavsnation.”
He averaged 12.6 points last season, shooting 40.8 percent from the floor and 36.4 percent from 3-point range. Mayo could become the Mavs’ starting shooting guard alongside Collison, Dallas’ new acquisition in a sign-and-trade with the Indiana Pacers, or he could slip into Jason Terry’s former role as the team’s sixth man.
The terms of Mayo’s deal were not known. The Mavs had about $4 million in cap space remaining.
