HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) -O.J. Mayo has new representation - LeBron James' agent, Leon Rose.
Mike Woelfel, a Huntington lawyer for Mayo's family, confirmed the signing, which was first reported Friday by The Herald-Dispatch of Huntington. Woelfel didn't immediately return a telephone message to The Associated Press.
Mayo and agent Calvin Andrews of Bill Duffy Associates parted ways last month over the distraction of allegations first revealed in an ESPN report.

Mayo played one season at USC before declaring for this month's NBA draft.
