Re: Update: ****er OJ Mayo signs with Mavericks

Wtf Mayo. This whole time it seemed like he was waiting on Phoenix and now this shit? Cuban must of opened the wallet.

I like Lee and if we can get him for 3-4M I'd be ok but Mayo would of a been another PERFECT building block.


oh and **** Shannon Brown. I want no piece of him. Biggest chucker I've seen in a long time.

Not confirmed but it's what being floated out there.


I'd have to think, Suns would've offered more if he waited. Not 8M per like originally reported though.

Re: Update: ****er OJ Mayo signs with Mavericks

Suns definitely would of offered more. Seemed like we were looking at 7M starting from what I've read? Not sure on the years but I'm guessing 3 with option on 4th?

Re: Update: ****er OJ Mayo signs with Mavericks

That's pretty much market value for Mayo. He has not performed well enough to earn a bigger contract and he's running low on potential as he'll be 25 at the start of the season. If you don't think he's going to get a lot better, then 9 million over 2 years is more than enough.

Re: Update: ****er OJ Mayo signs with Mavericks

if he plays well, mayo can be the 2nd option on dallas with the defense focused completely on dirk. then he can opt out and set up a big deal for next year.

definitely some risk involved on his part, but it also makes sense.

Re: Update: ****er OJ Mayo signs with Mavericks

Quote:
DALLAS -- For guard O.J. Mayo, he was not in a "show me the money'' mood during free agency this summer.

Mayo's business manager, LaPoe Smith, said his client was more interested in getting involved in a winning situtation than trying to break the bank.

"It wasn't about the money,'' Smith said. "It was about being in the right situation.''

The right situation for Mayo turned out to be the Dallas Mavericks, who signed him to a two-year contract Thursday for approximately $8.5 million. The second year of the contract -- for about $4.5 million -- is a player's option.

Smith said Mayo turned down one contract this summer that was worth $11 million. He said he also turned down an offer from the Phoenix Suns that was worth between $9 million-$10 million so he could play for the Mavs.

O.J. Mayo turned down a more lucrative offer from the Suns in order to sign with the Mavericks.

"You've got to know what the young man wants in his life,'' Mayo's business manager, LaPoe Smith, said. "He didn't want to go to a team that loses 60 games.
"That's not any fun. O.J. deserves better than that.''

Mayo agreed to a two-year contract for $8.5 million with Dallas, with the second year being a player option.

"Hopefully with some of the veteran guys they already have and me bringing some new juice to the team, hopefully we can get back to that level,'' Mayo said. "I think we can, because I know the pedigree of Coach Carlisle -- he’s a terrific coach.

"He’s one of the main reasons I came here. I just have a lot of faith in his ability to get the job done. And then just watching Dirk’s work ethic and Vince and Shawn … it’ll make me a better player, I believe.''

Really? 60 games? I mean I'm not saying we are great or even playoff bound but I think 20-62 isn't exactly an accurate prediction either.

I mean I can understand wanting to go to a 'contender' for less money but I wouldn't put Dallas in that bracket. But hey if you're more interested in winning than money then more power to ya. You are a rare professional athlete.

Re: Update: ****er OJ Mayo signs with Mavericks

Exactly. Not losing 60.

Taking less money is just as dumb his reasoning. . He won't see that next yr. Guranteed. And Mavs aren't a contender either.


Mayo can still suck my balls.
