ESPN: Mavericks Sign Guard O.J. Mayo


NBA via Memphis Grizzlies(NEW YORK) — The Dallas Mavericks may not be having the offseason they envisioned going into free agency, but they continue to add on quality players to their roster. The team has reportedly signed guard O.J. Mayo to a multi-year contract.

“I will be signing with dallas! #Mavsnation,” Mayo posted on his Twitter feed.

The 24-year old guard had spent all four seasons of his career with the Memphis Grizzlies after a draft night trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

He had an up and down career with the Grizzlies during the course of his career. He averaged 18.5 and 17.5 points per game his first two seasons as a starter for the team, but 11.3 and 12.6 points per game the past two seasons as a backup. It is unknown if the team plans on starting him or bringing him off the bench.

This is the latest move for the Mavericks who have undergone a makeover this offseaon. Only two players remain from the team’s championship roster last season (Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion). In the past week they’ve added Chris Kaman, Elton Brand, Darren Collison, Dahntay Jones, and Mayo.
