Marc Stein: Mavs and Bucks are NOT talking sign and trade on OJ Mayo, sources tell ESPN. Mavs prepared to let Mayo go to focus on other business Twitter @ESPNSteinLine

Free-agent guard O.J. Mayo and the Bucks are in discussions over a multiyear deal, a league source confirmed Wednesday. No deal has yet been reached, the source indicated. But the Bucks are making strong efforts to fortify their shooting guard position after the losses in free agency of Mike Dunleavy and J.J. Redick, and with Monta Ellis set to move elsewhere.

The Mavs don’t have the luxury of picking their trade partner in these sign-and-trade scenarios, which include the possibility a package from the Clippers headlined by explosive 23-year-old point guard Eric Bledsoe. Mayo will pick his next team – and it’s a near certainty he won’t return to Dallas due to the market for him after he was the team’s second-leading scorer during his lone season with the Mavs. ESPN.com

Here's Saunders' agenda, in no particular order, according to multiple sources: Meet with unrestricted free agent shooting O.J. Mayo. His agent, Rob Pelinka, has his office in Los Angeles. Saunders could also check in on another Pelinka client in Andre Iguodala, who also is an unrestricted free agent. According to ESPN, Pelinka will have Mayo and Iguodala together. The price for Iguodala is expected to be far too high for the Wolves, who plan on retaining restricted free agent center Nikola Pekovic. They won't have the financial flexibility needed to sign a player for more than approximately $7 million per year. Iguodala will command far more than that annually. KSTP
