WOW....surprising, I was

WOW....surprising, I was REALLY starting to like Maynor behind Williams, not sure I like him so much behind Westbrook...but when Williams went down, Maynor was producing big time

and WTF, it was in exchange for the draft rights to some european that will probably never see the NBA...the Knicks could of gave them more value! (wish we did....)

ARGH

We traded Maynor so the Thunder would take the money we owe Harpring off our hands. I'm upset, but we still have Ronnie Price.

Maynor has always been one of my favorite players since before the draft. I wanted the Pacers, my second favorite team, to draft him because I thought they could really use his leadership, which is where Maynor really shines. Thank God we didn't give him to New York. He would have been an excellent fit and would have helped them win a lot more games.

BTW, since Utah has New York's draft pick this season, I've had just as much fun cheering against the Knicks as I have had cheering for the Jazz this season.

wow, I say dumb move by the Jazz, Maynor was a lot more NBA ready than I initially thought, and was about solid rookie backup with a lot of room to improve.

Just To Be Clear...The Trade Is:

Jazz Get: Draft Rights To Peter Fehse

Thunder Get: Eric Maynor & Matt Harpring

As result..
Jazz Get: Some cap slack
Thunder Cut: Sean Livingston, Mike Wilks

Oklahoma

This is just another example of how smart OKC has been. They don't go out wasting money. I'm not even sure if they have anyone with a bad contract on the team. They have also been smart about not throwing money at just anyone. By having as much capspace as they have for the past few years, they are able to absorb all kinds of contracts and other teams have to give them either young talent or draft picks to boot. It's a really smart way to build a team. We are really going to see how smart and how creative they are when it's time to resign players, because that's where it gets really hard, especially for a young team with a bunch of guys that are due for extensions around the same time.

im not sure but the jazz are

im not sure but the jazz are over the cap by more then a lil and even when boozer leaves they will be over or near the cap so they still wont be able to bring in a big free agent. plus maynor wasnt making that muh as a late 1st round pick
