Despite playing 16 minutes off Philly's bench on Sunday, backup PG Eric Maynor went scoreless with one assist and three turnovers.

Lorenzo Brown is out with torn wrist ligaments and Maynor should continue to pick up decent minutes. He scored 13 points in each of the past two games, putting him on the radar in deep leagues, but those performances belie his season-long 34.4 percent shooting. Proceed with caution.
Mar 2 - 9:15 PM

Eric Maynor scored 13 points with five boards, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

He scored 13 points against the Magic on Wednesday thanks to some garbage time and did it again. You know the Sixers are bad when backup point guards can actually put up deep-league value because of the extended playing time in the fourth. It might backfire, but owners in deep leagues can think about using Maynor against very good teams like the Oklahoma City on Tuesday.
Mar 1 - 10:38 PM

Eric Maynor will play backup point guard on Monday night vs. the Bucks.

This move is very likely to stick and he seems to have leapfrogged Lorenzo Brown. Maynor is highly unlikely to see minutes in the teens and has no fantasy value, especially after a sub-par year in Washington.
Feb 24 - 5:32 PM

Eric Maynor was traded to the Sixers in a three-team deal on Thursday.

After he played very well with the Blazers last season, Maynor fell on his face with the Wizards this season. He is shooting 29.2 percent from the field and has played just 9.3 minutes per game as John Wall's backup. He'll have to compete with Tony Wroten for backup minutes and is not a pickup in almost all formats. The Sixers also received a second-round pick next year from the Wizards and a second-round pick from Denver in 2016.
Feb 20 - 1:11 PM

Eric Mayor has been included in a possible deal for Andre Miller.

He will likely be shipped elsewhere upon the Wiz-Nuggets deal's completion. Maynor has really fallen off a cliff after a somewhat promising 2012-13 season, so there's no reason to add him speculatively just yet.
Feb 20 - 12:24 PM

Eric Maynor (Achilles) will play against the Knicks on Thursday.

He missed Tuesday's game with a sore Achilles, but the injury is not considered serious. Maynor had an ACL reconstruction earlier in his career, but this Achilles issue seems somewhat isolated. He could get minutes at shooting guard behind Bradley Beal on top of backing up John Wall, but he's not worth drafting in most leagues.

Eric Maynor could see some time at shooting guard, according to the Washington Post.

Bradley Beal and Martell Webster are going to see the overwhelming majority of the time at the two. The talk of Maynor playing some shooting guard says a couple things: John Wall is going to see a ton of minutes and rookie Glen Rice Jr. will have a tough time seeing playing time in his first year. Maynor won't be worth drafting in most leagues.

Eric Maynor agreed to a multi-year deal with the Wizards on Monday.

The terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed, but it's expected to be a two-year contract. The Wizards were in the market for a backup point guard and were really left out in the cold last season due to John Wall's knee injury. Maynor had a great second half with the Blazers last year and most concerns about his ACL surgery have subsided. The Wizards have Martell Webster next on their to-do list.

Eric Maynor was contacted by the Wizards on Monday.

The Blazers didn't give him a qualifying offer thanks to drafting C.J. McCollum, so Maynor is an unrestricted free agent. Like most reports at this stage, there's no indication of how serious the Wizards are in acquiring the VCU product. He did a nice job reviving his career following 2012 ACL surgery, averaging 6.9 points, 4.0 assists and 0.4 steals in 21.2 minutes in 37 games with the Blazers last season.

Eric Maynor will not receive a qualifying offer from the Blazers this offseason, which would make him a free agent.

The drafting of C.J. McCollum makes him expendable and Maynor has lost a lot of the luster he had when playing in OKC. He'll need to show his knee is healthy and land in a good spot before fantasy owners should pay attention.

Trail Blazers GM Neil Olshey says he's finished his evaluation of point guard Eric Maynor but wouldn't commit to keeping him after this season.

Maynor, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, came to Portland in a mid-season trade and has done a solid job as Damon Lillard's backup. Olshey says he's happy with what he's seen but noted that "certain variables" will affect Maynor's standing with the team in the offseason. If he remains in Portland, Maynor won't offer a ton of fantasy value barring injury, but he could be worth something if he landed with a team that gave him significant playing time.

Eric Maynor scored four points on 1-of-4 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds, four assists and one block in 17 minutes off the bench on Monday.

If you took the gamble on Maynor in the Blazers' five-game week, you're going to have to eke it out like this and if all goes well you'll get a mild surge at some point.
Mon, Mar 18, 2013 09:36:00 PM

Eric Maynor hit 3-of-8 shots and zero 3-pointers for eight points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes of Tuesday's loss.

Maynor had been feeling it, but he scored just seven points on Sunday before tonight's disappointing line. The minutes are there, but owners should limit expectations as long as he's coming off the bench, which should be for the rest of the season.
Wed, Mar 13, 2013 01:02:00 AM

Eric Maynor scored 20 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 8-of-11 shots (including two threes) with six assists and two steals in 23 minutes.

Maynor has made some mild noise lately and plays behind stalwarts Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews, but the Blazers have nobody at all behind their starting five and it would make sense that somebody steps up with some level of productivity. The Blazers also have a five-game week not next week but the week after that, and that makes Maynor worth a look in many formats.
