Milwaukee Bucks Daily: O.J. Mayo’s year under the radar


The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as a year after his suspension began, O.J. Mayo continues to keep a low profile.

In this latest edition of the Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we catch up with the latest on former Buck O.J. Mayo a year after his NBA suspension was announced, get the details on the resignation of a major Bucks executive, and more.

On top of all of that, trade chatter continues to vaguely swirl around the Bucks, although as of yet there has been nothing of real substance to suggest any deal could come to fruition soon.

Whether that continues to be the case or not, we’ll have all of the details and reaction here on Behind the Buck Pass, and in this column every morning.
