After spending just one season in Dallas, O.J. Mayo is on the move again.
According to ESPN.com, Mayo and the Milwaukee Bucks have reached an agreement on a three-year, $24 million contract. Although the deal can’t be officially signed until July 10 – when the NBA will begin authorizing player trades and free agent signings – league sources are confirming the move.
Mayo will bring plenty of scoring to a Bucks team that finished with a record below .500 last season. He averaged 15.3 points and 4.4 assists per game in 2012-2013 with the Mavericks, which were his best personal numbers since the 2009-2010 season.
The Bucks cleared some cap space earlier this month when they traded J.J. Redick to the Los Angeles Clippers. Though Redick was productive for Milwaukee after being acquired from the Orlando Magic midway through last year, Mayo will certainly give the team a more dynamic scoring threat – one that could compliment Brandon Jennings quite well.
