The Memphis Grizzlies guard O.J. Mayo was suspended on Thursday for ten games for illegal use of drugs. The guard failed a league wide drug testing program. Mayo was found positive for the drug dehydroepiandrosterone.

The suspension for Mayo will begin on Friday when Memphis takes on the Philadelphia 76ers. During his suspension, Mayo will forfeit over $405,000 of his salary.

Mayo was the third pick in the 2008 draft, after spending just one season at the University of Southern California. The guard was drafted by Minnesota, but then later traded to Memphis for Kevin Love. Last season, Mayo finished second to Derrick Rose in the NBA Rookie of the Year voting.

Mayo has been rumored in possible trades this season, as he is the fourth leading scorer on the team with 12.2 points per game. The team and coaches were quoted as being “very disappointed” in the guard.
