NBA Free Agency: Milwaukee, Mayo close to deal


Just yesterday the Milwaukee Bucks were being hammered for letting J.J. Redick walk for a couple second round picks. Today they found his replacement — O.J. Mayo

Yahoo! NBA Insider, Adrian Wojnarowski, is reporting that the Bucks and Mayo are nearing an agreement to bring the former USC shooting guard to Milwaukee.

Earlier today, reports indicated that the Bucks were preparing a “substantial” offer to New York Knicks free agent J.R. Smith.

Obviously, something between now and then has changed.

Mayo, who played with the Dallas Mavericks last season, averaged 15.3 points, 4.4 assists and 3.5 rebounds.

Early Tuesday morning, it was reported that the Los Angeles Clippers and Minnesota Timberwolves had interest in the five year pro. The Clippers went on to complete a three-team trade, acquiring J.J. Redick, while the Timberwolves signed Kevin Martin away from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Bucks still have a decision on whether to retain restricted free agent Brandon Jennings. However, most reports indicate that Jennings will remain in Milwaukee.
