The Milwaukee Bucks have signed free agent guard O.J. Mayo.
The Bucks agreed to terms on a three-year, $24 million contract with Mayo last week. But thanks to a series of moves that general manager John Hammond has in the works, the Bucks had to wait until Saturday to make the contract official.
The 25-year-old Mayo averaged 15.3 points for the Dallas Mavericks last season. His signing should help the Bucks deal with the loss of J.J. Redick to the Clippers and the expected departure of Monta Ellis.
With Dirk Nowitzki out with a knee injury, Mayo averaged 20.9 points and shot 52.9 percent from 3-point range in the first month last season. He tied a career high with 40 points against the Rockets on Dec. 8.
