OJ Mayo trying to learn the PG spot in summer league
Memphis Commercial Appeal reports:
O.J. Mayo ended his two-game point guard experiment with great disappointment.
However, he is not deterred.
The Grizzlies third-year player knew that he wouldn't make a seamless transition from the shooting guard position to running the point. But Mayo hoped for a more credible showing.
Mayo committed 15 total turnovers and handed out just six assists after volunteering to play in the Grizzlies' first two NBA Summer League games. The 6-4 scorer didn't have trouble putting the ball in the basket.
However, his ballhandling and decision making left a lot to be desired. Mayo's flirtation at the point left this impression: While he's not exactly a lost cause, Mayo needs more repetition and a better understanding of what's required from him in that role.
