The latest Ainge infatuation?

Another interesting rumor popping up with O.J. Mayo the target.

Source: C's interested in Mayo for Bass; no deal imminent

The Boston Celtics came close to trading for Memphis' O.J. Mayo just before March's trading deadline, and it appears their interest remains just as strong now. A league source said the C's continue to be enamored with the 6-foot-5 shooting guard, and are considering making another run at him. The source said no deal is imminent, but it appears the Celtics are willing to offer up Brandon Bass via a sign and trade.

Not sure I understand the long standing infatuation with Mayo, but we'll see what becomes of this.
