Default Re: Jazz trade Eric Maynor, contract of Matt Harpring to Thunder

I understand the move for financial reasons, but why Maynor? He's the only backup PG we have... and no, Price does not count.

As far as Maynor goes, he's a very mediocre backup. Some day he'll probably be a high quality backup PG, but not likely to start much in his career. He'll have a role in the NBA for quite a while, just not to the tune of starting the game.

If the Jazz had another backup PG I wouldn't mind this trade.

EDIT:

Matt Harpring is owed $6.5M for this season. Eric Maynor $1.3M. The Jazz dumped ~$15M off this season's payroll including the luxury tax
