Mayo, who has averaged nearly 18 points per game since being the
third overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft.
It also exercised the fourth year option on Arthur, a reserve
forward. Memphis acquired his draft rights during the 2008 draft.
Memphis also exercised its third year option on Thabeet, the

All three played in Memphis' season opening loss to the Atlanta
Hawks on Wednesday night.
