    Exclamation Jazz trade rookie Eric Maynor to Oklahoma City

    http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=5176

    Utah has traded Eric Maynor and Matt Harpring to the Thunder for Peter Fehse, a guy who will never see an NBA court in person.

    It's basically a salary dump of Harpring's $6.5M contract, even though it expires at season's end.

    The Jazz have traded rookie Eric Maynor and Matt Harpring to the Thunder in exchange for 2002 second-round pick Peter Fehse, saving the Jazz about $13 million.


    Maynor will presumably back up PG Russell Westbrook on a Thunder roster stacked with young talent. Maynor struggled to get consistent minutes in Utah, and while he has good upside, it is unclear whether his role will change much in Oklahoma City.

    He's worth keeping an eye on, though. Harpring, whose career has been derailed by injury, was traded solely for his expiring contract. Fehse has never played a game in the NBA, and is unlikely to have any fantasy value going forward.

    Really pricey for the Jazz - I like Maynor a lot and I thought he was playing very well for them when he got minutes. But I guess you gotta do what you gotta do. I find unlikely they couldn't get a better deal in the pre-season. Either they soured on Maynor or they didn't plan things correctly.

    That's why Financial Flexiblity is so useful......everyone always asks what's the use of getting SalaryCap space when FAs won't come to Indy cuz it's a small Market Team. Well, this is what Financial Flexibility ( nowadays ) gets you....the opportunity to get involved in trades like this.

    That's awfully early to punt on a 1st rounder. Wow.

    Shows you what cap relief can get you these days. Or how awful Maynor is. Or a little of both.

    when you're under the salary cap, you dont have to match salaries. OKC was well under the cap.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    The Jazz get a $7.9 million trade exception as well. Unlikely they will use (they won't this season), but it's still useful.

    The Jazz will also have to sign a player soon, since they only have 12 on the roster.

    Wow why would the Jazz give up on Eric Maynor so soon?

    I thought he has everything you could want in a young player. Maybe he won't be an all star but he's worth keeping around they got nothing in return except a short term salary dump.

    With Westbrook and Harden there Manyor probably isn't a long term piece in OKC. Might he be on the Pacer's radar this summer?

    This trade was basically OKC shelling out an extra $6M to Harpring for Maynor.

    From OKC's perspective: In essence they paid $6M for Maynor, but if you spread that over the remainder of his contract, they are essentially paying about $3M per year for Maynor's services in doing this deal. This gives them another young talent to build around. He fits that backcourt well because they can play Harden, Sefolosha, or Westbrook with him.

    From Utah's perspective: They are basically giving up Maynor for $13M. That is a large chunk of change to get for somebody who was a late first rounder and has only been in the league for two months. I really like Maynor too, but if you are going to give somebody up, it might as well be the backup to your young All-Star (IMO) level PG that you have locked up for several years.

    Great trade for both teams, and I would love to reiterate the financial application of this trade... Financial flexibility is of utmost importance to teams that aren't in big cities. It's not all about basketball unfortunately.

    A lot of teams would sell off a late 1st round pick for $13 million.

    Harpring didn't rule out a comeback until well after the season started. I think the Jazz were more than happy to pay him if he could play and be their version of Jeff Foster (not so much just rebounding, but as in the feisty, reliable role player off the bench that the coach likes). Now that he's done for the year officially, the owner certainly wasn't trying to keep him around — plus pay the dollar for dollar on his deal since they're over the tax.

    And if they didn't want to take on a long term deal, they had to do something to make it worth the other team's while. Since they have Deron and he'll never be supplanted, and since Maynor never has a shot to be anything but a 15-minute per game guy in Utah nor ever be a Barbosa/Jason Terry little guy at the SG, he was just that expendable sweetener.

    Talk about a confidence killer for
    Maynor. Hopefully he'll find a place in OKC.

    This is exactly why we need to hold onto Murphy until season's end. As hard as that may be to swallow, this trade goes to show just how highly teams value the ability to remove salary quickly.

    What a savvy move by Sam Presti in Oklahoma City. Hollinger wrote about some interesting tidbits that I was not aware of at first:

    Additionally, some subtle aspects of this deal make it particularly juicy for the Thunder. Harpring makes $6.5 million this year, but Oklahoma City is on the hook for only $1.78 million while insurance will cover the rest. And since Harpring has an expiring contract, the deal won't cut into their projected $10 million-plus in cap space next summer. Finally, the Thunder can trade Harpring again if they so choose, either alone or as part of a package: Teams under the cap aren't bound by the league's two-month rule on re-packaging acquired players.
    I like Maynor, and I don't think this deal is about Utah giving up on him at all. They had to dangle some sort of asset to save some serious cash, and Maynor is the only real asset they were willing to give up.

    I think it'd be the exact opposite of that. He immediately is their second best PG and knows he's going to get plenty of minutes on a very young and very talented team.

    It demonstrate that in NBA, the power of nothing, or say the power of salary space.

    There is a big difference here.The Pacers are over the cap the real key is being under the cap.

    I'm sure Sloan had to sign off on the deal, and he must not think Maynor is someone who can run his team as the point guard. That is not to say Maynor might not be a great player, but running that offense isn't for everyone
