NBA: Bucks Sign Mayo to 3-Year, $24 M Deal

Jul 15 2013, 12:04am CDT | by

The Milwaukee Bucks signed guard O.J. Mayo to a three-year, $24 million deal on Saturday.

The Milwaukee Bucks signed guard O.J. Mayo to a three-year, $24 million deal on Saturday. 

Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports negotations took a few days to finish before he agreed to the deal with Milwaukee on July 5. He also adds the Bucks had a pressing need at shooting guard after Monta Ellis opted out of the final year of his contract to be a free agent. The Bucks' other previous shooting guards, Mike Dunleavy and J.J. Redick, signed with the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Clippers, respectively. 

An ESPN update dated July 13 confirmed Mayo has signed the three-year contract with the Bucks. 

Just like Ellis, Mayo opted out of the final year of his contract with the Dallas Mavericks. Had he chosen to stay in Dallas, he would have earned the $4.2 million owed him for the 2013-14 NBA season. Now, he will be commanding a price of $8 million annually at Milwaukee, Gardner notes.  

Ellis will reportedly be signing with Dallas, per Fox Sports Wisconsin. Once this deal becomes official, he and Mayo will swap starting two-guard spots. 

The Bucks also attempted to lure point guard Jeff Teague from the Atlanta Hawks, but the Hawks matched the offer on the same day Mayo signed with the Bucks. In spite of this, Milwaukee managed to sign Luke Ridnour in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves.   

Mayo reportedly drew attention from other teams such as the Timberwolves, Clippers and other teams prior to him commiting to Milwaukee. He averaged 15.3 points and shot a career-high 40.7 percent the three-point area with Dallas in the 2012-13 NBA season.

Can Kevin Love Accept Diminished Role with Cavaliers?

Aug 28 2014 1:05pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor isn't wrong about the difficulties Kevin Love will face with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but he may have missed the mark on how well the superstar big man will respond to them. Taylor, in an interview with Derek Wetmore of ESPN1500, said: I question Kevin if this is going to be the best deal for him because I think he's going to be the third player on a tea ...

Early Win-Loss Predictions for Milwaukee Bucks Next Season

Aug 14 2014 10:07pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It has been a summer of major change for the Milwaukee Bucks, and, given that fact, it might be easy to forget that this team finished the 2013-14 season with a 15-67 record—the worst in franchise history. With a new and bright outlook, the Bucks will take the floor this year in hopes of improving upon the atrocity of a season ago.  And while expectations should be tempered, fans should be thrilled for this new era to start. It won't take mu ...

Is There Hope in Sight for Minnesota Timberwolves After Losing Kevin Love?

Aug 8 2014 12:04pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

You'd be forgiven for thinking the Minnesota Timberwolves are cursed after news of Kevin Love's departure became official, but the truth isn't quite so severe as that. Chronic mismanagement in a situation where the margin for error has always been razor-thin is the culprit. Maybe that's its own type of curse, but at least it's one that can be practically corrected. Thanks to the habitual gaffes of ...

Can Kendall Marshall Find Permanent NBA Home with Milwaukee Bucks?

Jul 19 2014 7:14pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Los Angeles Lakers' summer makeover has included the return of several familiar faces, but Kendall Marshall won't be one of them. The organization waived the 22-year-old on Friday with the hope of potentially bringing him back in the event he cleared waivers. That's not going to happen. Milwaukee's interest is well-founded. Marshall averaged eight points and an impressive 8.8 assists ...
