OJ Mayo

He's on Memphis's bench now and Last 10 games:

23.4min 8.6pts | 2.0rebds |1.2assits | 0.400% | 0.320% from 3pts

He's not in the plans anymore... thought?

We need a scorer...

He'd be ideal here as a proper 2 who can shoot and finish.

Why would Memphis want to give away a potential all-star for an overpaid bench player that's locked up for 3 years? I don't even know why Mayo is being shopped.

Mayo is delicious. Especially chipotle mayo.

I wouldn't mind Kleiza going to Memphis... better record and in the West... better weather... so many gorgeous southern girls... closer to where he went to high school (Montrose Christian) and college (Missouri).

Unfortunately in the article it states:

Quote:
The Grizzlies have one of the cheapest owners in the NBA in Michael Heisley. I highly doubt that he will re-sign O.J. to a deal when his contract is up.
So if the owner won't resign Mayo who is currently coming off the bench, I doubt he will want Kleiza at almost 5,000,000 a year.

I prefer Kleiza land in Philly though. Equally sh!tty team but a great city.

I'm sure Weems wouldn't mind returning to his neighboring state either

With the recent extensions to Rudy Gay and Mike Conley, it seems as if O.J. Mayo or Zach Randolph may not stay with the team in the near future. According to Chad Ford of ESPN.com, the Grizzlies may trade Randolph or Mayo by the trade deadline:

"Michael Heisley came into the season pretty sure he had a playoff contender on his hands. He just extended Gay and Conley and he can't afford to let Gasol go. And Xavier Henry's played well for them. I think Mayo and Randolph have a better than 50 percent chance of being moved by February."

Too bad other teams could make better offers. Memphis could still make the playoffs. It is way too early for them to give up on that 8th seed. That franchise could really use the extra revenue from post-season gates. They better get something good in return for him.

On another note, this probably confirms that Heisley is fully prepared to match any offers made to Gasol.

That deal hardly saves Memphis any money. And they have to take on Kleiza whose been playing like shit. He makes $5 mill this year.

And why would they toss in Thabeet? They used a 2nd overall pick on a project player but you think they will give up on him after 18 months, and then take Kleiza instead? No. Not happening.

Since the the Heat are starting to find a groove, that pick will probably be in the 23-25 range. It won't be that exciting to Memphis.

Other teams can make better offers.

Toronto doesnt have a chance to land Mayo. Other teams will offer better players for him.

Yup. At least right now.

For the record, Jeff, I would love to be wrong about this. If Derozan + Miami's pick (or something like that) landed Mayo, I would applaud Colagelo. But I just don't see it happening.

Probably not, but it could be part of it. All depends on what they're looking for. If they want another young star at a different position then we're fucked, if they want capspace so they can add the right pieces next summer + a prospect/pick then we can do something.
