Dallas Mavericks free-agent guard O.J. Mayo met with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night in Los Angeles, a league source said. Mayo is scheduled to also meet with the Detroit Pistons,Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz.
At one point, I thought Mayo would be the Pistons’ top offseason target.
In his first 21 games last season, Mayo shot an incredible 53 percent on 3-pointers. In his final 61 games, he shot a mediocre 35 percent on 3-pointers.
Overall, Mayo shot a career-best 41 percent from beyond the arc, but perhaps that number was boosted by a fluky, hot start. He’s still a solid outside shooter, and he could help the Pistons space the floor. Really, because of his slumping finish, one that included Rick Carlisle getting on him for inconsistent effort, Mayo might come cheap enough for the Pistons to get him after signing one of Josh Smith or Andre Iguodala.
