From O.J. Mayo's personal Twitter feed (@JuiceMayo32, if you aren't following, duh) is news that the former Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard will be signing with the Dallas Mavericks, according to Mayo himself.

Terms of the supposed contract and really any details whatsoever are still forthcoming, but unless Mayo likes making things up about himself like this, it's probably fair to assume that he's staying in the division, and heading to the retooling Mavericks.

Mayo was looking for more than many teams, it seemed, wanted to pay, so it will be interesting to see what he eventually settled with in Dallas. For now, it represents one of the bigger departures from a Grizzlies' roster that has made big waves in the Western Conference over the past few seasons. It means more time for the likes of Tony Wroten and Jerryd Bayless, too, so if you're down with those guys, this could turn out to be a very good thing.

All told, Mayo's name has been on and off the trading block for so long in Memphis that it really felt as though this day was not a matter of if, but when. We wish you well, O.J. Mayo, in the next step in your career. But since we'll be seeing plenty of you in that Mavericks jersey, we can only wish you kinda, sorta well.

Last minute update: Mark Cuban has responded via Twitter to Mayo's announcement. It's as done as we need it to be. Thanks for the timeliness, Twitterverse! Onward, Grizzlies.
