2. O.J. Mayo, Memphis Grizzlies
Kind of crazy to consider a player of Mayo’s talent to be an expendable commodity, but that’s where the Memphis Grizzlies find themselves in 2012. Mayo had a phenomenal rookie year, but has seen his numbers decline as he shares a remarkably similar game to Memphis’s other young wingman, Rudy Gay. And, considering how quickly that squad came together when defensive stalwart Tony Allen got inserted into the starting lineup, it’d be foolish to assume that Mayo is still the Grizzlies two-guard of the future. Young, developing teams in need of scoring wing players – say, the Cavaliers – should have Memphis’s number on speed-dile. Dude’s only 24; even if he has worn out his welcome in Memphis, his NBA legacy is far from set.
