Michael Heisley Denies OJ Mayo Trade Talk

Heisley admits that he’s interested in acquiring Chris Paul, but tells the Commercial Appeal that he’s not willing to shop Mayo to get him: “A report that Memphis offered guard O.J. Mayo in an attempt to trade for New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul drew the ire of Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley and a strong denial. ‘Unequivocally, O.J. Mayo was not part of any discussions about a trade for Chris Paul,’ Heisley said Monday night. ‘That is not true. Where do these people get this stuff?’ Yahoo! Sports reported on its website Monday that ‘The Memphis Grizzlies offered O.J. Mayo as part of a package for Paul recently, but talks went nowhere.’ Heisley acknowledged that he approached New Orleans about Paul’s availability but insisted ‘Mayo was not part of the package that I talked to them about.”‘

    Not gonna happen anyway. It would take Mayo, Gay, Gasol, and first round draft picks for the next 30 years from Memphis for the Hornets to trade Chris Paul.

    2 stories from Yahoo about Chris Paul trades? Is Yahoo just reaching for stories?

    I second LeoneL. He took the words right out of my mouth.

    That would be a dumb move on the part of Memphis.Mayo has nowhere to go but up.

    Would make more sense if it was Rudy gay in the rumors since memphis could just sign and deal him. They could package him conley and a couple picks for cp3

    OJ Mayo will be better than Chris Paul in 3 seasons
