O.J. Mayo has become the first player in a decade to be dismissed and disqualified from the NBA for violating the terms of the league's anti-drug program.
The league said the No. 3 overall pick in the 2008 draft out of USC is eligible to apply for reinstatement in two years.
Mayo now joins the NBA's "Hall of Shame" which also includes Chris Washburn (1989), Roy Tarpley (1991 & 1995), Richard Dumas (1991,1993,1995), "Birdman" Chris Andersen (2006), and former Clippers owner Donald Sterling (2013).
