MILWAUKEE (AP) - Signing with the Bucks in the offseason meant also adding family duties for O.J. Mayo.
And he welcomes the opportunity to be closer to his younger brother in Milwaukee.
Mayo was one of the Bucks' big summer acquisitions after signing a three-year deal as a free agent. He'll be counted on to add scoring punch in the backcourt.
Mayo turns 26 next week. Little brother Todd Mayo is a junior guard at Marquette. He's coming back from left knee surgery in the offseason, and will be looked upon to replace former star Vander Blue, who left for the NBA following his junior season.
Both the Bucks and Marquette play home games at the Bradley Center in downtown Milwaukee.
The Bucks open the season Wednesday in New York against the Knicks.
