Back in 2016, veteran NBA guard O.J. Mayo was dismissed and disqualified from the league for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program and he has not been in the league since.
Under the Anti-Drug Program, Mayo is eligible to apply for reinstatement in two years.
These days, the former Milwaukee Bucks guard is apparently running into some financial troble after TMZ Sports reported that he is in danger of losing the $1.8 million house he bought in Milwaukee.
The report cites court documents that reveal Mayo hasn’t made a payment on the house since April and still owes more than $1.1 million on the mortgage.
Here’s what we know … O.J. bought a $1.8 million home in Wisconsin after inking a 3-year, $24 million deal with the Bucks in 2013. At the time, Mayo took out a loan for $1.26 million to help pay for the crib.
The place is SICK — 9,200 square feet with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, home theater and private gym.
As a result, the bank foreclosed on the house.
The bank tried to serve Mayo with court documents several times — but they were unsuccessful. Eventually, Mayo’s trainer told a process server that O.J. is currently playing overseas in China.
According to Spotrac, Mayo made more than $45 million during his eight seasons in the league.
He was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2008 draft and played for the Memphis Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks and Milwaukee Bucks.
