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.

Pierce ejected in Wizards’ win over Bucks

Nov 1 2014 10:02pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

WASHINGTON — Paul Pierce was tossed before halftime in his first home game with the Washington Wizards, and Otto Porter picked up the slack with a career-high 21 points Saturday night in a 108-97 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Starting the third quarter in place of Pierce, second-year forward Porter — essentially a nonfactor as a No. 3 overall draft pick as a rookie — scored 19 points in the second half and finished 7 for 11 from the field and 6 for 7 from the free-throw line. His pr ...

WASHINGTON — The leadership Paul Pierce was supposed to supply to the Wizards was wasted when he was tossed before halftime in his first home game with Washington on Saturday. The way Otto Porter played in the second half, it didn’t matter. Starting the third quarter in place of Pierce, Porter — essentially a nonfactor last season as a rookie No. 3 overall draft pick — scored 19 of his career-high 21 points in the second half of the Wizards’ 108-97 win ...

Post Up: The LeBron We Know

Nov 1 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: slamonline

Grizzlies 97 (2-0), Pacers 89 (1-1) Zach Randolph (22 points, 13 rebounds, 3 steals) and Marc Gasol (20 points, 6 rebounds, 2 blocks) were at it again, incessantly pounding the ball down low right at Roy Hibbert (8 points, 8 rebounds). In the team’s first two wins, Randolph and Gasol have combined to average 49.6 points and 20.5 rebounds. If these two can stay healthy, their chemistry can take the Grizzlies a long way. Starting guards Mike Conley (17 points ...
