Bucks Sign O.J. Mayo to a 3-Year Deal


According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Bucks have come to terms on a 3-year/$24 million deal with free agent shooting guard O.J. Mayo.



Wojnarowski reported yesterday that the Bucks and Mayo were closing in on a multi-year contract. Mayo, 25, spent last season with the Dallas Mavericks after   playing with the Memphis Grizzlies during his first four years in the NBA. Mayo, 25, was the #3 overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft coming out of college at USC.

Mayo had a bounce-back season with Dallas last year (averaging 15.3 points, 4.4 assists and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 44.9% from the field) after sporting career low numbers across the board in his final season in Memphis. Mayo fills a major need for Milwaukee, whose only shooting guard on the roster prior to the signing was rookie Nate Wolters.

We’ll have more of our thoughts on Mayo and this deal soon, right here on Behind the Buck Pass.
