After nearly dealing O.J. Mayo to the Indiana Pacers at the NBA trade deadline, the Memphis Grizzlies' message to Mayo was clear: we are fine without you.

Mayo experienced two phenomenal seasons with the Grizzlies to start his career, but in his third year he dropped out of the starting lineup and saw his numbers, consistency and confidence all plummet.
