After losing out on Deron Williams, the Mavericks and Mark Cuban faced the wrath of the media.
Considering the failure to bring in a huge name to play along with Dirk Nowitzki, many pundits labeled the Mavs one of the losers of free agency so far.
Since then they've stepped their game up and have quietly put together one of the best free agent classes of the summer.
Not only did they bring in two cheap, effective big men in Elton Brand and Chris Kaman and traded for Darren Collison, they also reeled in swingman O.J. Mayo.
On Monday night, Mayo took to his Twitter account to announce that he would be moving to Dallas to play for Rick Carlisle.
While the former USC Trojan has come off the bench the past two years for the Grizzlies, Mayo clearly has the athletic ability and scoring prowess needed in a starting shooting guard.
The third-overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, Mayo found great success in his first two years in the league averaging around 18 points per game.
While his production has dropped off a bit over the past couple of years, Mayo is one of most underrated signings of the offseason and a change of scenery might be just what the doctor ordered for the young talent.
