According to a report from Yahoo's Marc J. Spears, the Bulls have shown interest in free agent shooting guard O.J. Mayo.
Free agent G OJ Mayo getting interest from Lakers, Chicago, Phoenix and Dallas and hopes to make decision in next 10 days, source tells Y! Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) July 14, 2012
The 24-year-old Mayo averaged 12.6 points in 66 games off the bench for the Grizzlies in 2012. Mayo's best statistical season came during his rookie year where he averaged 18.5 points per game, but his numbers have been on a rapid decline since 2008.
After the Bulls trade of Kyle Korver goes through, they will have close to 5 million to spend on remaining free agents.
Mark Schanowski, Kendall Gill and Will Perdue break down the Bulls' upcoming schedule in the latest edition of the Bulls Road Ahead, presented by Chicagoland and NW Indiana Honda dealers.
TNT Bulls are back this week as the team heads into a crucial stretch.
Currently, the Bulls sit half a game back of the Miami Heat for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race, and with just eight games remaining on the schedule, each contest is essentially a must-win.
So, yes, Thursday would be a great time for Jimmy Butler and company to summon their TNT alter ego. The Bulls have sealed 18 straight victories when playing on TNT Thursday, an improbable feat considering those games are usually reserved for two of the NBA's best.
To continue that run, they'll have to down Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are also fighting for playoff positioning -- albeit at the top of the conference. Good thing the Bulls have a tendency to get up for big games.
"The Bulls play up and down to their competition," Bulls Pregame and Postgame analyst Kendall Gill said. "They've been doing that the whole season."
After Cleveland, the Bulls get set to battle another playoff squad, the Atlanta Hawks.
