MEMPHIS, TENN. (AP) - The Memphis Grizzlies say they have exercised contract options on guard O.J. Mayo, forward Darrell Arthur and center Hasheem Thabeet.

The team said Thursday it exercised the fourth year option on 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 second overall pick in the 2009 draft.

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