08:05 PM ET 06.30 | NBA free agency opens on Sunday evening and early Monday morning and teams likely won't waste time in calling in players they have intentions of signing. One of those players is guard O.J. Mayo who opted out of his deal with the Dallas Mavericks in order to see if he can't get more money elsewhere and the Minnesota Timberwolves appear to be one of those teams. But, according to ESPN's Tim McMahon, Mayo's preference is to re-sign with the Mavericks if possible. Mayo was a free agent last offseason but didn't draw nearly as much attention as he thought he would but that seems to have changed. The Chicago Bulls were interested in Mayo before he inked a deal with the Mavericks but this offseason at least three contenders are interested in signing him. But everything rests on what the Mavericks do about Dwight Howard. It's a well-known fact that Mark Cuban wants to sign Howard and he's been making moves all offseason long so far in an effort to free up as much money as he can to make an offer he hopes Howard can't refuse.

Yup... he might be open to resigning with the Mavs but I'd lay odds the Mavs aren't real open to resigning with him.

That would be ironic. Mayo was Minny's pick on draft day :-)
