O.J. Mayo Dumped by Agent

O.J. Mayo and agent Calvin Andrews have severed ties in the wake of accusations that Andrews’ agency provided improper cash and benefits to a close friend of the former USC star guard.

"Due to the overwhelming intensity of recent allegations regarding the recruitment of O.J. Mayo, we feel that our representation of him is a distraction for he and his family at this time," Andrews said in a statement Thursday. [LA Times]
