Eric Maynor has no interest in D-League assignmentPosted by Inside Hoops
Since falling out of the rotation and becoming a seldom-used third stringer, Eric Maynor has logged just 20 minutes in the past 10 games.
He now enters Friday’s road game against the rival yet reeling Los Angeles Lakers at a crossroad.
Maynor has appeared in only five of the past 10 contests, and the majority of those sparse minutes have come in mop-up duty.
But rather than agreeing to a D-League assignment simply for playing purposes as he continues to regain his rhythm from last year’s devastating knee injury that cost him the final 57 games and the entire playoffs, Maynor said he prefers to remain on the Thunder roster.
“No,” Maynor said emphatically, repeating it two additional times, when asked if he had any desire for a D-League assignment to the Tulsa 66ers. “I get good court work in every day so I’m going to be straight whenever the opportunity comes back around.”
