O.J. Mayo To Pacers Deal "Officially Dead"

Tuesday December 13th, 2011

The previously reported trade that would send O.J. Mayo to the Indiana Pacers for Josh McRoberts and Brandon Rush is “officially dead,” according to a tweet from the Commercial Appeal.

“Right now, we do not have any active effort going to trade O.J. Mayo,” Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley told the Commercial Appeal.

The Pacers have been attempting to acquire Mayo for some time now, however they have now failed several times. At the trade deadline last year, the Pacers set up a three-team deal with the New Orleans Hornets but the Hornets pulled out of the negotiations.
