A few days ago, Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports tweeted that Dallas was among four teams interested in Mayo. The 24-year-old guard averaged 12.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists off the bench for Memphis last season.
Now, we've seen players mistakenly say things on Twitter, like when James Harden incorrectly thought he was traded, but considering this move is up to Mayo, and not a team, this would appear to have some credibility. We'll see if the team or any reporters follow up on this.
