    This doesn't make sense to me. Maynor proved himself in 20 games to be a reliable backup/spot starter. They wanted to dump Harpring's contract, they could have done so this offseason.

    Nice move by the Thunder.

    Once again, someone does understand how salary cap, luxury tax, and contracts work.

    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

    And the Thunder waived Shaun Livingston to make room for Maynor.

    Maynor was the PG I was hoping the Mavs would draft last year with their late first round pick. (I'm pleased with Rorigue whom they selected I just didn't know anything about him at the time.)

    Nice. Westbrook is a dumb PG, borderline retard. this should help them have some normalcy at point more than an erratic driving chucker.

    Another brilliant move by Presti. Cutting Livingston was calateral damage though, which is the only down side. I was hoping Shaun would be able to play again.

    They are under the cap, so they don't really have any issues on taking on the salary.

    I am wondering, did Harpring refuse to "medically retire?"

    I think he said he still wants to play. Which is why Utah traded him, otherwise they could have gotten some $ back if he was to retire due to inability to play physically.

    To be fair, yes. Maynor looked okay with potential, but he wasn't quite decent yet. He's still a rookie after all.
