Sounds like the mavs won't be able to afford him especially if they sign Dwight. Since we need a good shooter would you be interested? I'd like to see us go after him but have yet to see us potentially linked to him. If we go big man tonight I think oj would make a great signing at the right price. What says you?

If he's cheaper than Henderson and that's why we couldn't GET Henderson, then I say sure.  I just don't think OJ is any better than Henderson so I'd rather keep Hendo for a reasonable contract.

I agree, I also think Hendo is a better defender

Oh yeah Hendo seems to be underrated by our fan base in general.  I want him here.  He's a tough guy that won't whine or take plays off.  I hope we can keep him AND McRoberts.  We need some grit and energy.  

 

Hendo's only issue is health.

I believe OJ is much better than Hendo offensively. He's a guy who can go and get 30 some nights and take over a game. Defensively, he's not as good as Hendo and not aggressive enough. Anyway, I don't think we're goin to be able to convince any big names to come play here. Same go for guys like Millsap and Jefferson. Can't see it happening.

I'll admit I don't know a TON about Mayo, but from looking at his stats I'm not sure he offers us a huge upgrade over Hendo, even offensively.  I'm not challenging the fact that he could take over a game, but we need a consistent scorer on this team.   Hendo can be that, IF he stays healthy, and that's the big IF.   I pretty much dislike Duke, so I can't believe I'm trying to get us to keep Hendo and McBob lol.

I don't really know much about Mayo either, however I do remember him putting up 30 on us in one of the first games of the season, then he put up 22 on us just a few days later (I was at that game, and that was the first time we ever beat Dallas, it was a special game; especially because it went to OT).

I also want to resign Henderson (unless we can get J.R. Smith). I payed quite a bit of attention to the BuzzCats during the last two months of the season because my college classes were starting to wind down and I remember Hendo destroying opponents in the last two months. I was at the game against Boston when he dropped 35 on them as we absolutely crushed them. Oh and by the way, he scored 35 points in only 37 minutes of play. If he would have played the full 48, he would have dropped 45.

I would agree that mayo is better offensively and that hendo is the better defensive player. The fact that hendo has his injury problems has me leaning to oj if the money were similar although I wouldn't be disappointed in either.

Not to much of a difference Mayo is a better 3pt shooter but Gerald is better at attacking the basket and mid range.  Defense Gerald is better hands down.

Not a fan of him. Not a fan of Henderson either if he is going to ask for an outrageous contract.
