O.J. Mayo has informed teams he's interested in signing for more than mid-level money, according to Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald and Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld. According to Kyler, Mayo's representatives view the 24-year-old as a consolation prize for teams who miss out on Eric Gordon – potentially the Pacers, Rockets, Suns, and Hornets.
If Mayo isn't considering offers for the $5MM mid-level exception, that takes a number of potential fits out of the running. The Celtics, Clippers, and Timberwolves are among the clubs that might have interest in Mayo at that price, but likely don't have the means to offer any more.
According to Kyler, Mayo and his agent have heard from a "large number of teams" and expect to ink a deal for more than the mid-level when the moratorium ends. Because the Grizzlies didn't tender Mayo a qualifying offer, the former third overall pick is an unrestricted free agent and is free to sign with any club.
