Thread: Rush/McRoberts for Mayo .... dead?

    Default Rush/McRoberts for Mayo .... dead?

    MikeWellsNBA Mike Wells
    As it appears Jamal Crawford may end up n NYC, the Pacers r expected to reach out to Memphis about OJ Mayo again.
    In 49 states it's just basketball, but this is Indiana!

    I'd live with it, but I'm surprised we still have interest now that we have George Hill and the continued development of Lance Stephenson.

    My guess is it will be a redo of the the deal at the deadline that fell through. Josh (S&T) to Memphis for Mayo.

    We may actually see a Mayo for McRoberts swap, thanks only to Marc Gasol's price tag (and drafting Selby). Otherwise, no way Memphis does this.

    Wasn't it reported that it is only a matter of time before George Hill is the starting point guard? If so then this makes more sense IMO.

    Not a big fan of Mayo, but for the right price (S&T of Josh), why not?

    I think Mayo is an undersized 2 though, just like Hill.

    Nice inside info we have here....

    The 2 teams could possibly do a sign n trade. The Grizzlies have too many guards and they're interested in free agent Josh McRoberts.

    Maybe this is why the Pacers didn't want to sign Josh. They wanted to see if Memphis still had interest in him and would be willing to do a sign-and-trade for Mayo.

    Not a huge Mayo fan, but adding West and Mayo would make for an interesting season as long as the price is right.

    I'm hoping this deal goes down. Mayo would nicely fill the role you were hoping Crawford would at a discounted price. If its a home run we have the inside track to resign him, if he's a bust you can easily let him walk because you would have almost nothing invested.

    I would rather have Mayo than Crawford. S&T with McRoberts would mean Josh will get 5-6 million as well. Without looking I believe Mayo makes 5.4 this year off the top of my head.

    I would like Mayo because he can fit for the future plans and I don't like West because he doesn't fit those plans.

    Mayo is better than Crawford. Better all around.

    Considering that I've assumed McRoberts would just walk, getting OJ Mayo out of it would be great.

    Mayo was pretty decent in the playoffs. Like Granger, he can be good/very good defensively when motivated.

    Mayo could be in Pacers future plans providing he does what they hope. West is just a Rental.

    Great news! We've stuck Out with our first, second, and third options!

    Does the NBA have a version of Moneyball?

    Agreed. I think Hill's a better player though.

    I don't know what kind of contract Josh will get, but it can be less than Mayo's in a s&t because we are under the cap. That way we can offer Memphis a little cap relief to sign Gasol. Provided Josh agrees to sign for less than what Mayo makes.
