OJ Mayo Heads to Memphis Grizzlies; Kevin Love to Timberwolves


The Minnesota Timberwolves did not hold onto O.J. Mayo for long.

The Wolves have reached an agreement in principle with the Memphis Grizzlies that sends the draft rights to Mayo, Marko Jaric, Antoine Walker and Greg Buckner to the Grizzlies in return for the draft rights to Kevin Love, Mike Miller, Brian Cardinal and Jason Collins.

The blockbuster deal for both teams wasn’t completed until past 2 a.m. ET, some two hours after Boston made the 60th and final pick of the draft, according to The Associated Press.
