Thunder trade rumors and news: Eric Maynor traded to Portland Trail Blazers

Dilip Vishwanat

The Thunder have agreed to a trade with the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed to trade reserve guard Eric Maynor to the Portland Trail Blazers, per Marc Stein of ESPN. The Blazers will likely send a draft pick to the Thunder in the deal, per Brian Windhorst of ESPN, and Portland will also send the draft rights to Giorgio Printezis to the Thunder, per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Maynor is averaging just 2.8 points and 2.0 assists in 10.6 minutes per game this season and has fallen out of Scott Brooks' rotation in favor of second-year guard Reggie Jackson. Maynor missed most of the 2011-12 season with a knee injury -- suffered in Jan. of 2012. Maynor -- a 2009 first-round pick of the Utah Jazz -- is in the final year of his rookie contract that pays him $2.3 million this season.

From Ben Golliver of Blazers Edge:

The Blazers have a full 15-man roster and will need to trade or waive a player to open up a spot if no player is sent in return.

The answer to this question seems to have come from Wojnarowski when he tweeted the Blazers would send Printezis to the Thunder. Keep an eye on what this move means for second-year guard Nolan Smith out of Duke. Smith has been averaging 10 minutes per game in Feb. to go along with 4.6 points and 1.1 assists.
