According to league sources, the Milwaukee Bucks and former Dallas Mavericks guard, O. J. Mayo, have reportedly agreed on a 3-year, $24 million deal.
Mayo, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard, is a much needed pick up for the organization as Monta Ellis, J. J. Redick, and Mike Dunleavy have all departed the team in the last few weeks for free agent deals.
The unrestricted free agent opted out of the second year of his contract with Dallas, and will make about $4 million more per season with Milwaukee.
Last season with the Mavericks, Mayo was second on the team in scoring, averaging 15.3 points per game while starting every contest of the 82 game season. Mayo also averaged 4.4 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game in 2012-2013, playing over 35 minutes a night.
The 25-year-old played one season of college hoops at USC and was the third overall pick of the 2008 NBA draft. Mayo played his first four years in the NBA with the Memphis Grizzlies before going to Dallas for a year.
The Bucks and Mayo will be able to sign the deal on Wednesday when the league's moratorium period ends.
