I think because he is on a minimum deal, OKC didn't really need the TPE in order to acquire Brewer, so should really be looked at as two separate deals.

edit: oops, I see Hartford pointed this out.

On the money.

NYK just signed Martin to a 10-day contract.

Maynor will probably leave in the offseason anyway, he's not going to supplant Lillard in the starting lineup and I think he sees himself as a starter. Can't fault Portland for taking a flyer.

The value to Presti sending Maynor to Portland is goodwill. Maynor has been a good player for us. He lost his backup PG job at least in part because he got hurt. He didn't bitch or cause any problems even though he's in the last year of his rookie deal and really needs to demonstrate his abilities/recovery in order to secure his next contract this summer. Wasn't going to happen with us so Presti sent him somewhere it would... with no chance of hurting us come playoff time. Players and agents appreciate and remember this sort of thing. It was a righteous move. Supports team chemistry.

As already stated, Brewer is on a vet minimum deal. Completely separate deals.

He's in for a rude awakening this summer if that's the case. I can't think of a single team that would want him as their starting PG. Even teams in desperate need of a PG like Utah would have him really REALLY low on their list.

Yup, no one's gonna give Maynor starter minutes unless its a last resort.

EDIT: OKC also got rights to a Euro from Portland. Don't know anything about him.

solid move for both teams. portland's bench is bad, so maynor has a better chance of receiving playing time to restore his prospects to his former glory with portland than with choklahoma city. meanwhile, the thunder clear cap space and open up a roster spot to fill a need. solid move for them, especially if they had no intentions of retaining maynor, which this trade alludes to.

Giorgos Printezis plays for Olympiacos. He made the game-winning shot in last year's Euroleague Finals. He has been great for my team (I'm Greek) the last 2-3 years or so.

If he ever opts to go to the NBA I wish him all the best.
