Some GMs seem to think he can get $10-12m/year, which would put him well out of the range of teams like Boston or Chicago.

Guy proved he is a legit player in the first half of the season at Dallas. I dont think he was well used there the second half after dirk came back. Dude can flat out shoot and ball

Mayo has seemed to play much better when he is on less talented teams- Dallas prior to Dirk's return as you point out, and Memphis before they were any good.  He seems to get lost in the shuffle when there are other talented players around.  I think that's because he is probably really just a shooting specialist on a good team.  When bad teams give him total control, he can appear to be a little bit more than he really is.

How so? Do you think Dirk caused him to stop shooting 50% from 3 point range? His abberant accuracy from deep was the only thing different about his game early on in Dallas.
