Memphis Grizzlies unrestricted free agent O.J. Mayo has the interest of the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, Chicago Bulls and Phoenix Suns and will make a decision by July 24, according to a tweet from Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

Marc Stein of ESPN.com tweeted on July 11 that if the New Orleans Hornets match the offer sheet for guard Eric Gordon, Mayo would be “courted hard” by the Suns. The Hornets did, in fact, match the Suns’ offer sheet for Gordon, offering him $58 million over four-years.

The Suns now hope to pair either Mayo or Rockets unrestricted free agent Courtney Lee with newly acquired Goran Dragic, who played with Lee in Houston last season.

Mayo, who made $5.6 million last season with the Grizzlies, is one of the more talented scoring guards to enter this summers free agent class. He averaged 18.5 points in the 2008-09 season as a rookie, but scored only 12.6 points in 26 minutes per game last season.
