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 No mention of the Celtics here, which could mean they are out of the running. Boston doesn't have the room to sign Mayo or Courtney Lee and it seems that a Jason Terry sign and trade with Dallas is their only hope of freeing up that space. The Suns make the most sense to land OJ Mayo, as they can offer him the most money. Their offer to Eric Gordon was matched by New Orleans and so they are looking for a replacement. When they recently amnestied Luis Scola it should've been obvious that they were gearing up to sign Mayo or Lee.
