The Milwaukee Bucks and free-agent guard O.J. Mayo have agreed upon a three-year, $24 million deal, according to multiple reports. The deal can’t be made official until July 10.

Mayo, who signed a two-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks last season, decided to decline his player-option with the Mavericks to test free agency. The Bucks traded guard J.J. Redick to the Los Angeles Clippers in a part of a three-team deal involving the Phoenix Suns earlier this week and, as Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski reports, the Bucks may stand to lose guard Monta Ellis, as well.

The 25-year-old Mayo averaged 15.3 points on 44 percent shooting to go along with 4.3 assists while playing in all 82 games for the Mavericks last season.

It doesn't matter one bit. Next to the Sacramento Kings, the Bucks are the worst organization/team in the NBA.

I'm glad that Mayo found a place to land.  I always thought he just needed shot, and Dallas put him in the position to prove his mettle.  $8 million/yr?  Time to turn up production, my man!
