  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Grizzlies and Kings with the finish of the year

    Dec 30, 2010, 6:51 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans Francisco Garcia Eugene Jeter

    What you missed while purchasing the iPhone bottle opener… Kings 100, Grizzlies 98: Two struggling teams that could use a win and it came down to this: Kings up 97-96 with 5.5 seconds left, no timeouts left for anyone. Memphis inbounds the ball from the sidelines to O.J. Mayo and runs a poorly-designed play —…

  2. Report: Minnesota making push for O.J. Mayo, Anthony Randolph

    Dec 29, 2010, 3:48 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Orlando Magic

    For a guy that the owner doesn’t sound like he wants to trade there are certainly a lot of teams asking about getting O.J. Mayo out of Memphis. The latest rumor is that the Minnesota Timberwolves are going to push to get Mayo, according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports.com. The Wolves actually drafted Mayo…

  3. Bulls looking for shooting guard: Jackson, Mayo on radar

    Dec 29, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Chicago Bulls have some pieces — a dynamic point guard, a power forward who can score inside and out, a rebounding and defense focused center (who is out injured), some quality role players. What they want is a shooting guard who can fit next to Derrick Rose. That’s what they are working hard to…

  4. O.J. Mayo’s father arrested, charged with attempted murder

    Dec 23, 2010, 2:29 PM EDT

    mayo father

    This is just a sad story on several levels. Kenneth Ziegler, father of Memphis Grizzlies guard O.J. Mayo, has been arrested in Huntington, West Virginia and charged with attempted murder, possession, and fleeing in a vehicle. All of that is just gravy for his the previously existing warrants for his arrest; Ziegler had standing warrants…

  5. Grizzlies’ owner Heisley gives O.J. Mayo pep talk

    Dec 17, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Orlando Magic

    O.J. Mayo was sent to the bench in favor of rookie Xavier Henry — and that has been best for the team and him, now that Mayo has started to accept the bench scorer role and put up double digit points the last three games, including 24 against the Bobcats. But that doesn’t mean it’s…

  6. Rumors fly about O.J. Mayo, Thabeet trades but Grizzlies say nothing imminent

    Dec 14, 2010, 4:21 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Orlando Magic

    Wednesday the NBA trade floodgates open. Well, sort of. They open in the sense that all the guys signed as free agents this summer can be traded as of Dec. 15, so possibilities for trades increase exponentially. The actual trades, those usually take some time. Take the Grizzlies for example. They will listen to your…

  7. Grizzlies owner Heisley not sure why his team stinks

    Dec 8, 2010, 2:05 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    Last season the Memphis Grizzlies were just below .500 (40-42), just out of the playoffs in the West. So they brought the band back together, expected a step forward and… Not so much. They are 8-14 and sitting 12th in the Western Conference. And that has owner Michael Heisley confused, as he told the Commercial…

  8. Kobe looks good in slo-mo

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/RZuag06mYf8?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Fun video of Kobe Bryant making it a rough night for OJ Mayo and the Memphis Grizzlies. As he has done so many others. But watching him in slow motion — and the reactions of Mayo trying to stay with him — gives you a real sense of just how difficult he is to defend.

  9. NBA Season Preview: Memphis Grizzlies

    Oct 15, 2010, 4:38 PM EDT

    Conley_memphis

    Last season: 40-42, which was a revelation because going into the season with Zach Randolph, OJ Mayo and Allen Iverson many expected no passing, followed closely implosion and disaster. But Iverson was shipped out and the team coalesced, Marc Gasol took a huge step forward, Randolph had a career year and they were about average.…

  10. Grizzlies not talking extension with Mike Conley

    Oct 5, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    Memphis has talked about building for the future. Rudy Gay is the anchor for that, with his new max extension this summer. Marc Gasol will be in the middle of that. O.J. Mayo and Hasheem Thabeet are on their rookie deals but could be in Memphis for a long time. Mike Conley may not be…

  11. Team USA cut to 15, no surprises

    Jul 28, 2010, 3:43 PM EDT

    It went down pretty much exactly as Rob Mahoney told you earlier today. Tyreke Evans, Gerald Wallace, JaVale McGee and O.J. Mayo have been let go, bringing the roster down to 15. Three more guys will be let go after camp in New York and before the team heads to Turkey for the FIBA World…

  12. Memphis draftee Greivis Vasquez has surgery on ankle

    Jul 27, 2010, 10:08 PM EDT

    Greivis Vasquez has a chance to get significant minutes as a rookie backing up Mike Conley as the Memphis point guard this season, if he can get a few things worked out. One of those things was worked out Tuesday — he had surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle. The team announced…

  13. Memphis would like Chris Paul, too, but you can't have OJ Mayo to get him

    Jun 22, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    These rumors are going to be coming all day so let’s just be clear — there are 29 other teams that would like to trade for Chris Paul. Well, 30 teams that want Paul if you count incoming New Orleans Hornets owner Gary Chouest who wants CP3 to stay on his team. Once Chouest gets…

  14. O.J. Mayo dreams of being a point guard

    Jun 16, 2010, 9:31 AM EDT

    Point guard was a weak spot or Memphis last season. It was one of their least productive spots on offense. It was where they got burned a lot defensively. It is one position the Grizzlies need to improve for next year. Enter O.J. Mayo. The team’s starting two guard is spending the summer in Memphis…

  15. Lionel Hollins agrees to extension to coach Grizzlies

    May 11, 2010, 12:19 PM EDT

    Before last season started, the Memphis Grizzlies were expected to be a laughing stock. The team had talent — O.J. Mayo, Rudy Gay, and Zach Randolph could score. But they weren’t going to share the ball or play defense. Or be any good. Oh, yes they were. Coach Lionel Hollins gets some credit for that.…
