OJ goes UFA RT @CAGrizBlog: Griz issue qualifying offers to Arthur, Speights, making them RFA. Won't issue QO to Mayo or Hudson.


Dan Wolken ‏@DanWolken
@casey_young He will get offered higher than his QO anyway. Griz admitting he's gone.

Where does he go? Boston was willing to trade for him, so I'm sure they'll make an offer. Any other potential teams interested?

I don't want the C's to make an offer to him. He's such an inefficient shooter. I don't see the point in overpaying for this guy when you can find 40% FG shooters anywhere.

S&T to the Lakers. Grizzlies always treasured Josh McRoberts for some reason (and were willing to make a Mayo-McRoberts swap a yr ago with Indiana), and they need a legitimate back up to Conley as the other 3 guys they have are way too young to contribute in the playoffs for them (Josh Selby, Jeremy Pargo and Tony Wroten).


Josh McRoberts + Steve Blake + 2013 1st rd pick to Memphis for OJ Mayo.

If somebody does what the 2nd tweet says, they overpaid.

Any team stupid enough to pay Mayo more than his $7.4M qualifying offer deserves to be stuck with that bad contract.

Definitely. Makes the Gordon trade even better for us just for the simple fact that we won't consider overpaying for Mayo. I'd much rather have two years of Gordon than five years of Mayo.

His contract may not be the greatest, but figuring you get a more than adequate PF to replace Pau plus a young, versatile 6th man.. it may be one of the better deals you'll find

I cant believe they just let him go like that. At least under restricted free agency they would have the right to match or can even force a S&T.

On the right team, OJ Mayo can be an allstar. He didnt fit in with the grizzlies but they are making a mistake by letting him go like that.

Mayo should go to a mediocre where he can get the touches he deserves. Somewhere like Washington, Houston,

Mayo is a good player but he did not fit the Grit and Grind mentally the Grizzlies have.Mayo needs to go to a run and shot team.

Girzzlies were dead last in 3 point makes and attempts for the third year in a row which was bad news for Mayo who never got the green light.

Something around the MLE salary would be my guess, unless it gets into a bidding war and someone overpays. Personally, I don't see the Celtics overpaying for him. I wouldn't anyway. I think Bradley makes a fine SG for them.

well, that logic doesn't make sense based off your original post is all I mean. Either a player is overpaid or he isn't in your eyes, right? It can't be, "well, he is overpaid at $7 million because he was signed without someone getting something back".

Ask the Hawks that and see what they say. I'd rather suck complete *** than be a second round eit every year. At least you have a chance to obtain a bright future and further improve your team. With a team like the Hawks and the team you showed, you know exactly what you're getting every year: a middle of the pack team that never achieves anything beyond the last year and has to wait it out until their most likely ****** contracts run their course.

Cubby

I've been thinking about it and I honestly think Chicago is the best place for him. He has an open opportunity here to start and get his shots. He can showcase how good he truly is and he would be playing for a contending team. He'd be "the man" until Rose gets back and then he'd play alongside him. They're both good friends from what a read since they work out together in LA.

Timberwolves are the perfect team for him. He would get a ton of open looks with Rubio. He would also get a shot to play pg when Rubio is on the bench. Adelman said he wants more ball handlers so I think kahn will make a big run at him.

Nuggest-The perfect system for OJ both defensively and offensive.
Sixers-Running team
Warriors-same thing
Celtics-Rondo

Bad teams for OJ.
Bulls-Not a great defender and to much half court for OJ.
Lakers-Plays best at the starting SG position and with Kobe looks like a bad mix.
Wolves-I see the same thing happening all over again he will be solid but won't make an impact to take them over the top.

You're underrating Mayo if you think he doesn't fit well with the Bulls. We would get out on breaks, but we don't really have anyone besides Rose and Rip to get on the break. We need another shot creator and he's just that. Plus, he's around where Rip is defensively and he's quick, so he should be fine. He won't be guarding the best wing anyways.

Blitzbolt
06-30-2012, 06:37 PM
Super inconsistent in the half court.To big for PGs to small for SGs we had Tony Allen who lock down the best wing in any team but Mayo was getting burn by bench players.

Well we need a fast break partner for Rose. He fits the bill. Deng guards the best wing anyway. We need a combo guard that can create offense for himself and shoot the rock. He's perfect honestly. Plus, with Thibs as his coach, you never know with his defense. Know what I mean?

Grizzlies have been a top 10 defense since Hollins became the coach first in Steals and force turnovers for 3 years in a row.
Mayo never created his own shot as a grizzlies so I don't know where you got that 'create his own offense thing' the reason I think he could do better with Boston is because of Rondo all his assist.

OJ needs a system like the knicks had before the coaching chance and I'm sure he will prefer a team who runs more.

He never really got a chance in Memphis though. Their offense is insanely explosive in their starting lineup so it makes sense to have a defender like Allen in with them. He'd get a golden opportunity in Chicago. Plus, with Rose he'd get a lot of opportunities of open shots and it's not like we are asking him to be the number on scorer. Just a guy that can do it on occasion to help out Derrick.

Sign and trade would need to happen since we are over the cap. Watson and Korver combine for about 8 million so say we sign OJ to that size contract, we trade those two to you. Plus, drafting Teague makes Watson expendable.

Sign and trade would need to happen since we are over the cap. Watson and Korver combine for about 8 million so say we sign OJ to that size contract, we trade those two to you. Plus, drafting Teague makes Watson expendable.

That sounds amazing we should tell our FO's to do this deal somehow.

If the Nets don't do a deal for Joe Johnson, they're considering a significant offer for Memphis shooting guard O.J. Mayo, Y! sources said.

4yr/35mil is my guess
