O.J. Mayo has undoubtedly worn out his welcome in Memphis as the team opted to not extend him a qualifying offer, but a number of teams could use a scoring 2-guard that can put the ball in the basket a myriad of ways.
Mayo gave the Grizzlies a dynamic scorer off the bench, once he finally embraced his sixth man role. He is a solid three-point shooter, but is great at breaking down opposing defenses off the dribble and getting to the rim. He can even run the team's offense for stretches.
Mayo is not overwhelmingly athletic, but he's not afraid draw fouls well and can move well without the basketball. He would be a great second or third scoring option for a team that needs a player capable of creating their own offense.
He is not excellent with one-on-one defense, but he bought into the Memphis system and proved to be capable of forcing turnovers and getting out on the break for easy scoring opportunities.
His field-goal percentage needs to improve (40.8 percent), but he is capable of carrying a team's offense when he gets hot.
Matt Moore of CBS Sports reports that Phoenix will look into Mayo if New Orleans matches their offer for Eric Gordon, which is very likely. Partnering with Goran Dragic in the backcourt would give the team a pair of dynamic guards capable of creating offense for themselves and their teammates.
Other potential teams are Indiana, Sacramento, Dallas and Utah, according to ESPN's Ric Bucher.
Mayo is still young and capable of being an above-average starting 2 for years to come. Every team in need of backcourt depth should be making calls about the USC product.
