While it is certainly of good fortune for the Thunder to currently boast a 3rd string PG of Maynor's caliber, the fact is that at his current $2.3mm salary (and a next year qualifying offer of $3.5mm) he is probably too expensive, long term. Not only is Maynor too expensive, but he's too good a floor general to be cooped up at the end of a team's bench. However, as long as Reggie Jackson, the current #2 PG, continues to improve, that's likely where Maynor will stay, due to his more limited upside as well as the salary cap considerations.
Does an Eric Maynor trade to the Wizards make sense?
