Reports: New Jersey Nets, Memphis Grizzlies Discussing OJ Mayo Trade

Poor OJ Mayo, who finds his name swirling in trade rumors for the umpteenth time, may land in New Jersey. Reports both the Commercial Appeal and NY Post: “The Nets could pull the trigger on a deal for guard O.J. Mayo, according to league sources familiar with the thinking of the Nets and Grizzlies. Just two days after sources said talks between the Nets and Grizzlies for a trade involving Mayo had fizzled out, a published report said the two teams are talking again. The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported the Nets have offered two scenarios for Mayo — Anthony Morrow in one deal or Jordan Farmar and a pick in another. But one source said there wasn’t anything ‘right now’ but that the Nets could do a deal if they wanted. The Commercial Appeal said it the other way that the decision was in the hands of the Grizzlies.”

    YEEESSSS, OJ Mayo is a poor man Kobe, and I can’t wait until he can really show his talent. Bulls need him more, but Nets will lose Deron, so OJ finally get to put up some juice. BOOK IT!!

    This trade doesn’t make much sense. NOt with how good Marshon Brooks has been.

  • JJ

    Please trade him to the bulls already.

    honestly? one day o.j. mayo will be able to finally realize his potential and memphis will regret trading him, and using him improperly.

    AD: IF the Nets trade for Mayo, chances are he will start next to Brooks, with Brooks playing the Sf position. When Stevenson was out, Morrow started in his place, and he and Brooks were both in the starting 5. The problem waas that if you start Morrow with Brooks, the Nets defense will be suck even more than it usually does. With Stevenson starting today, Morrow will come off the bench. So if Mayo is there, either Morrow or Farmar will go to the Nets, and Brooks could be the 6th man. Love him though.

    @ gerald i agree but brooks right now iss too small to play the 3 but we need more offense but i do know that deron wants morrow on his team but w.e

    Can Brooks really play the 3? I have watched 2 Nets game, so my opinion on him is very limited.

  • AD

    ^^^^ i think hes too small

  • http://Slamonline.com Caboose

    ^He can play SF the same way that Tyreke, DeRozen, Jason Richardson, Richard Hamilton, and Ben Gordon play the 3. That is, decent offensively but horrid on defense simply because of size. He’s better suited as a 2.
