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.
