4 million possibly? Did we miss the boat here?

$8mil for Mayo + Scola? And we paid Hill how much...?
I don't think we did, he wanted the big money and we wouldn't have even had the 4 mil past Sunday. The market dictated his worth and he went to a place where he can compete for the starting spot, for 4 mil (if that is correct).

Larry Bird is must be pissed after reading about this. Mayo for 4 million a year....omg.
You can't get champagne from a garden hose.
There is no ****ing way he took 4 million.
I figured he'd get at least 6 million per. Another find by the Mavs.
lets wait for something beyond speculation. i don't believe he would take 4 mil. S&T is much more likely.
what is disheartening is that the mavs offseason plans blow up completely, and they still--easily--end with a more exciting set of acquisitions than we do.
to be fair, i say "more exciting" rather than "better" but i would argue both are true.

O.J. Mayo looking for $8M per year, Suns not interested http://www.iamagm.com/article/oj-may …
^This was 2 hours ago. I have a hard time believing he signed for $4M a year.
The market set his value. Plain and simple.

Wish our FO would of done that with Hill instead of severally over pay bidding against themselves .
I dont see a S&T here the Grizz aren't in the mode of taking salary on to their team.
Probably a 1 year deal with a chance to show he can produce on a playoff type team to go get paid next year.
But George Hill at 5yrs 40m

We missed ALOT of boats this off season and added a few whales.
There were so many moves, yet none of them were actually really good. They had to sign Roy, so I give them that, but vastly overpaid him. Then, as if that weren't enough, they vastly overpaid George Hill, they traded DJones and DC for nothing but capspace, took a gamble at 4mpy on a back up center, got another guard who has not proved he can stay in the league yet and got a 1 year rental for a back up point guard, who I think will be better than DC, but who knows really... It appears from the outside looking in that there were many missed opportunities because of not being able to change plans on the fly and being stubborn in what seemed like back up plans for every other team.
We will still have a good team, possibly better than last years, but not as good as it could have been.
More likely, the Mavs would use the trade exception that they got from the Clippers for Odom.
That would allow them to pay Mayo 8.2 mil next year.
The Mavs could add a 2d pick maybe, although a trade exception on its own is pretty nice, if you are the Grizzlies. You just never know when a Steve Nash wants to come your way.
To me, that sounds much more likely than this 3-4 mil speculation. Why would he do that. I doubt tht nobody would even give him the midlevel.
It's a two year deal with the second year being a player option. He took 4 million because he knows he's going to try to play his *** off, opt out, and get paid again next summer.
If you look at his numbers, poor playoff performance, and his steady decline he is not worth a whole lot more than 4 million per season.
there are no guarantees in this regard. what if he gets injured.
what if noone offers much again. it's not like this was a down year in terms of spending.
i can get 1 year deals if it's a Jeff Green type of deal. 1 year huge deal, above the market value, and you try to prove your worth. But it's still a huge risk.
but taking less money and less years. it makes no sense for a young guy looking for his 1st contract.
When it came down to it I'd rather have Hill than Mayo. I hope the best for Mayo out west but I like what Hill brings to our team and the continuity that has remained in our starting five.
Try again. He has been in the league for four years and the past two years have been much worse than his first two. Check the numbers.
Wow what a failure by our FO with Hill he is gonna have to show a lot to justify the 8mil a year
It feels like Mayo is already a Pacers. It's just a matter of time...
Mayo's gotten really, really overrated. That's really all I have to say about it. He did not sign for 4 mil or whatever. Watch.
