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.

Milwaukee Bucks 2014-15 Season Preview: Roster Breakdown, Win-Loss Prediction

Oct 23 2014 8:44pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

After putting together a franchise-worst record in 2013-14, it's cliche to say that things can only get better for the Milwaukee Bucks when 2014-15 tips off. But, despite the 15-67 record the team turned in a season ago, that's exactly the mentality needed to turn things around. And with an abundance of young talent, it's not unreasonable to think brighter days are right around the corner. It didn't take long for the direction of the ...

The second overall pick in the most recent NBA draft should be the No. 1 rookie by the time the 2014-15 season ends.

Parker boasted the most complete offensive game among the top-tier prospects, which is a big reason why he was chosen to be the new face of the Bucks franchise. During a recent scrimmage, t ...
