Free agent shooting guard O.J. Mayo has attracted a lot of attention on the free agent market, but his fun has ended. Mayo has reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with the Milwaukee Bucks. The news was announced on Friday night.
From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
Milwaukee has reached agreement with OJ Mayo on a three-year, $24 million contract, league source tells Y! Sports.

That’s a great payday for Mayo and one that doesn’t come as a shock.
With how desperate the Bucks were for a starting shooting guard and with all of the interest in the free agent shooter, Milwaukee had to do everything they needed in order to land Mayo under contract. They are hoping he can make up for the losses of J.J. Redick and Monta Ellis.
