Thread: How about trading for OJ Mayo?

    Default How about trading for OJ Mayo?

    Dunleavy isnt getting any younger, and shooting guard is one of the weaker spots on this roster.

    He IS playing off the bench in Memphis right now, and it looks like they may be looking to trade him.

    I really hope OJ Mayo becomes a Pacer!

    He is a 6'4 SG shooting 40% from the field and does very little outside of scoring. Pass.

    They should be looking to trade him.

    Dunleavy is a better defender than Mayo. Mayo is too small to defend NBA wings. Everybody goes bananas on him.

    I think he's playing off the bench because he was late to the pre-game shoot-out - tv commentators said he and Randolph arrived late but they didn't say they were benched because of that - but if he's playing 2 guard in a team with a normal PG, that's the best role for him, a combo-guard to bring off the bench.

    Um, he's having an off year obviously.

    But this is a talented guy who needs a new place to recover and play up to his potential.

    Last year, he averaged 18 on 46% shooting.

    If we can get Mayo, not only do we get another 3 point shooter, we get a guy who can put the ball on the floor to score the ball

    Randolph closing the game out strong. Late is working.

    Even as a scorer, Mayo is not prolific, versatile or efficient enough to be more than a 3rd option. 18ppg on 55 TS% last season, doesn't draw fouls, relies on jumpers.

    Other than scoring: defensive liability, rebounding liability, subpar playmaker.

    Good player to pair with a big point-guard or with a playmaking wing. He'd look good as a Phil Jackson's point-guard.

    OJ Mayo can create his own shot. That is the most enticing thing about acquiring him, in my opinion.

    OJ Mayo is far from what this team needs for reasons cordobes stated.

    He really wouldn't make this team better. He might put up better stats than Dunleavy but I really don't think he would help the Pacers win.

    Of course he would. So would every PG that got to throw it to MJ and Kobe on 80% of their teams possessions.

    Only reason for him coming off bench is cause him and Zach Randolph were late for pre game warm ups. I don't like his game at, very over rated player IMO.

    Rajon Rondo wouldn't.

    If he could play PG, Mayo would become a plus defender + a plus rebounder. That and his good scoring and shooting would make him a much more interesting player. I'd like to see him in Atlanta, playing alongside Joe Johnson.

    We have a solid at worse SG in Rush and a promising young SG in George. So I don't see the need to Mayo.

    I'd take OJ Mayo over any SG on this roster in a heartbeat. Yes, he's struggling this season, but with Rudy Gay's increased aggressiveness he just needs to make adjustments.

    Look at his last two seasons and tell me who on our roster can do better at the 2:

    2008: 18.5ppg/4rpg/3apg on 44% FG / 38% 3FG / 88% FT with over one steal
    2009: 17.5ppg/4rpg/3apg on 46% FG / 38% 3FG / 81% FT with over one steal

    Honestly, those numbers tell me that he's been a LOT better than any player on our team not named Granger over the past two-plus seasons. Not only is he going to get better just this season, but I think career averages of about 18/3/3 on 47%/38%/85% is very realistic. How could you NOT want that from a guy who's been a complete team player since he entered the league and is bound to get better? I'm not saying he's ever going to be an All Star or an undisputed first option, but he has as much potential as any third year player in the entire league.

    I'd trade anyone on our squad not named Collison or Hibbert to get Mayo. Granger is debatable (my only problem with Danny is his shot selection and his inability to consistently create off of the dribble).
