Shooting Guard: 6’5, 210 lbs; 8th year, USC | Career: 14.3 points/game, 3.2 rebounds/game, 43% FG

From prep school legend to #3 overall pick (2008) to heat-check role player, OJ Mayo’s basketball journey has been a whirlwind of emotions; a standout two-guard with incalculable upside, OJ’s days as a primetime scorer may be gone but he’s morphed himself into a spot up shooter and shot-maker off the bench; perfect candidate to transition to a 13-15 points/night Sixth Man – gets buckets in a variety of ways off the dribble (loves launching floaters after crosses), mostly makes the extra pass (well, mostly); level of focus is sometimes a concern but Juice is valuable when fully reigned in
