O.J. Mayo is headed to Milwaukee to play for the Bucks. The former Maverick signed a three-year deal worth $24 million on Saturday night. Mayo will look to help a backcourt that just lost explosive scorer Monta Ellis to the very team Mayo last played for in Dallas.
Mayo, 25, averaged 15 points a game last season in Dallas. In Milwaukee, he will most likely be asked to up that number, as there are very few scoring threats on the team. With Ellis leaving, and the future of free agent guard Brandon Jennings still up in the air, Mayo could very well become the go-to guy offensively for the Bucks.
This is Mayo’s third team since being drafted in 2008.
Was the pickup of Mayo a good move for the Bucks? Weigh in here in the Bucks forum.
