The Mayo spreads from Minnesota to Memphis

TONY BLOGS correspondent Gerry Harris told me earlier that he would have liked to see Memphis get OJ Mayo, pairing him with Rudy Gay for an electrifying combo. ESPN is reporting that he might get his wish.

The Timberwolves will send Mayo's draft rights, Marko Jaric, Antoine Walker and Greg Buckner to the Grizzlies for the rights to Kevin Love, as well as Mike Miller, Brian Cardinal and Jason Collins.

Memphis still doesn't have a power forward, but maybe they plan on using Walker in that role. This shows that the Grizz have a lot of faith in Marc Gasol, Pau's brother who says he will come across the globe and play in the NBA. Minnesota gets Miller, a solid shooter, along with Love, Collins and Cardinal to help Al Jefferson in the post.
