Grizzlies Want OJ Mayo to Play in Summer League as Point Guard

Mayo to summer league?

It is well-documented that second-year player O.J. Mayo is an undersized shooting guard at 6-4, so the Grizzlies coaching staff has invited the former USC standout to participate in summer league.

The goal is for Mayo to significantly improve his point guard skills.

Mayo, though, hasn't decided if he'll participate given his USA Basketball commitment. Mayo and Rudy Gay will be among the young NBA hopefuls vying for a spot on the USA squad that will compete during the World Championships at Turkey.

The Griz are looking to improve their versatility so Mayo's ability to play point guard at times could lead to a bigger, more potent offensive lineup in doses.

Mayo's shaky ball handling and poor decision-making have been major deficiencies throughout his first NBA two seasons.
