What Happened To OJ mayo?
He was a child prodigy, the next superstar. Played Varsity when he was in 7th grade. Was taken 3rd overall.Had good rookie season (18.5ppg 3.8rpg 3.2apg 1.1spg 38.0mpg) But now he is declining instead of improving. He isn't even starting anymore (xavier henry took his spot!) his scoring average is down to 13.3 his minutes down to 32 he is shooting 38.7% from the field!! What happened to OJ?
I don't think Mayo is a part of the Grizzlies future. Now with Henry starting, and with Sam Young and Tony Allen coming off the bench playing SG, that makes Mayo expendable. I can see a team with a need at SG trading for him.
I'm waiting on Stanford Hoops to answer this question.
For Pekovic and Memphis' first rounder they gave to Utah for Ronnie Brewer that was traded to Minny for Al Jefferson.
he started playin people his own age and size lol
@bron42 - Thats kind of ironic isnt it? considering he was a 12 year old playing with 17 year olds a 7th grader averaging 23 points in Varsity level!
trade Mayo to Cleveland x Jamison
trade Mayo and Gasol and future pick draft to Denver x Melo
trade Mayo to New York x Chandler
He started shooting way too many 3's. He was on my fantasy and I was not very happy with his performance, so I decided to trade before he hit rock bottom and now I believe he officially has. I traded him for Richard Jefferson, although I think I might have gave up too much to get Jefferson, oh well.
Utah should try and get him. Send Miles and Memo. I think Mayo could really flourish with Dwill along side him as well Big Al and Millsap.
StF616: OJ was actually 14 years old in 7th grade lol
He's on the trading block according to Marc Stein.
I would LOVE Mayo on the block.
Mayo and Thabeet for Randolph, Gallo and Chandler
I think Mayo is a player that has 2 have the ball in his hands to be effective an with the emergence of Mike Conley and a much improved Rudy Gay he just isnt having he impact he use 2
Also i think Mayo would be a nice fit in New Orleans next to CP3, CP3 setting him up while also OJ being able to share the ball handling duties with him would be good for the both of them, Also his outside shooting ability is a plus. Maybe u could piece a trade involving Marcus Thornton/ Marco Bellinelli and Aaron Gray/ David Anderson for Mayo and Thabeet/Aurthur
Mayo for Flynn and Pekovic
Draft either Kanter or Melo who will probally be in reach and Minny has the tools to be a challenger out West
hed be that 2 guard that the jazz need id been wondering if him getting cut off the world team has affected him i actually thought hed come out this year wiht a chip on his shoulder and play well but it could have had a negative effect on him
