Trail Blazers acquire Eric Maynor
By Brian Windhorst
The Oklahoma City Thunder have traded backup point guard Eric Maynor to the Portland Trail Blazers, sources told ESPN.com. The Thunder will receive a $2.2 million trade exception in return for Maynor.
Maynor, who is coming off major knee surgery, had fallen out of the Thunder's rotation. In Portland, he will become a backup to Blazers star rookie Damian Lillard.
Maynor, a 2009 first-round pick, averaged 2.8 points in 37 games this season.
