Thread: Grizzlies' O.J. Mayo becomes unrestricted FA

  1. #1

    Default Grizzlies' O.J. Mayo becomes unrestricted FA

    The Grizzlies have opted not to extend a qualifying offer to O.J. Mayo, making him an unrestricted FA.

    Mayo's QO came with a steep $7.4 million price tag, more than he's likely to earn annually on the free market, though plenty of teams will be vying for his services. The Knicks, Celtics and Pacers have all been interested in Mayo at various times -- it's worth noting that he views himself as a PG going forward.

    I would love to have a big PG like him, but we need more distribution qualities from a PG... Not scoring...

    How about no.

    Let's either keep DC or trade for a point. Get a backup SF and PF. We have 3 SGs, so we don't need OJ.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Maybe he wants to come here to distribute? Even if he doesn't, let's go get him!

    I'd offer him anwhere from 4-8 million a year on as many years as we can give him. He would be a great 6th man.

    I would love to see him run the pick and roll with Plumlee.

    He would be an average player. We don't need anymore average players. Mayo is what he is going to be at this point. He has had ample opportunity to prove he is a superstar. We are becoming the Atlanta Hawks. Signing him would make us even more so.

    Mayo still has a ton of potential. He is still the same prospect that was compared to the likes of Kobe Bryant. You all act like he is already 35 or something. He is and will be better than that player most of you wanted Jamal Crawford.

    We already got our OJ last night. If we drafted someone like Machado we would have had a chance to sign him.

    I'd be weary of an amazing vertical jump until I saw him dribble through some cones...

    I thought the Pacers just drafted their off the bench SG. I see no reason for OJ or Chucker Crawford. Especially at the price tag that comes along with them.

    I don't like this because I secretly want Brandon Roy.

    Rather sign Machado for money reasons and us having a more diverse group of guards.

    A PG going forward? Really, now why did he have to go say that. I did not view him very favorably as a PG when he was in
    Memphis.

    If I had to choose between Mayo and Hill at $7M, I'd take Mayo.

    The problem with that is that we've established chemistry with Hill on the team, not Mayo.

    You aren't the only one. I would too. He is a much better 2 with untapped potential. Especially considering that Hill will now want starter's money, he'll be in the $8M range for some teams. I'll take Mayo as a new 6th man at guard and start DC again. He proved he could play well in the playoffs, I thought.

    I would imagine that Mayo would do as well at PG as Jalen Rose did...not great.

    I doubt Mayo would come to the Pacers to come off the bench, but if he was willing, you have to seriously consider it. That said, I wouldn't make him a top priority this offseason.

    What on Earth gave Mayo the idea that he'd be a good Point Guard?

    His Agent?

    In all the years that I have read and seen OJ....I have never thought for once that he's a good PG much less a distributor.

    Given that we have Orlando....I'd rather have GH since he ( at least ) has shown that he is capable of running the point.
