Grizzlies fail to qualify guard O.J. Mayo, making him an unrestricted free agent

The Memphis Grizzlies issued qualifying offers to two of their impending free agents, but they did not extend one to guard O.J. Mayo. That makes the sought-after Mayo an unrestricted free agent.

Ronald Tillery of Memphis' Commerical Appeal writes that Mayo's high qualifying threshold -- $7.4 million -- factored into the Grizzlies' decision to let him go without compensation. The team is only $7.7 million from having to pay the luxury tax.

The Boston Celtics are frequently cited as having a great deal of interest in Mayo; the team nearly completed a deal for him (for Ray Allen) at this season's trade deadline. Now they may be able to add Mayo to their roster without giving up anything in return.
