Great news for Maynor. More playing time and a chance to fill a need for Portland.

 

Speaking of diamonds in the rough that Presiti pulls off each year, lets take a look at the fools gold as well.  Two first round picks for Cole Aldridge,  $40,000,000 for Perk which left no money for Harden, and missing on Larry Sanders at pick #15 while going after Cole.  Larry just happened to be Maynors team mate at VCU so he was not unknown.  The Thunder could have had Sanders and Harden but instead have Perk, a new back up point guard, and one less first round pick.

Jackson is more athletic and may have more potential but the record with Maynor as a backup was 21-4 till Xmas:  18-10 afterwards.

 Brooks's normal strategy is to hope that Westbrook has a good game and that the other team can not recover.   When that does not work he changes back up point guards.

Trade Maynor-let him out of the Brooks-Presti madhouse.

$45,000,000 for a mediocre center, draft picks for Cole Aldridge, passing on Larry Sanders when

his point guard was on your team, Harden gone., benching a backup point guard when your record was 21-4.

Do not think Maynor is the problem. The second group is lacking the scoring power due to off season transactions which makes assists more difficult. Give Lamb a shot and maybe the chemistry will improve.
