The Milwaukee Bucks lost J.J. Redick to the Los Angeles Clippers and many expect Monta Ellis to leave town in free agency, so the Bucks are left looking for a shooter to add in their line up. With the opening on their roster, the team appears to be shifting their focus to none other than O.J. Mayo.
From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
Milwaukee is nearing a deal to sign free agent guard O.J. Mayo, league sources tell Y Sports.

Mayo had been strongly linked to the Minnesota Timberwolves, but the team opted to sign Kevin Martin. With the Bucks looking to secure a starting shooting guard, Mayo would be a great option for the team if they can complete a deal.
