Celtics took a shot at O.J. Mayo in the offseason

Guard O.J. Mayo, who is leading the NBA in 3-point percentage and having a career season with the Mavericks, said he talked with the Celtics over the summer after he was not re-signed by the Memphis Grizzlies. Mayo shot 3 of 7 Wednesday night in a 117-115 double-overtime loss to the Celtics.

Mayo signed a one-year deal with a player option with the Mavericks and is their leading scorer, averaging 20.9 points per game, as the club waits for Dirk Nowitzki to return from knee surgery.
