Thunder Aggressively Shopping Eric Maynor

The Thunder aren't expected to make another blockbuster move in the next couple days, but a smaller deal is a possibility. Such a move could include Eric Maynor, as Chris Broussard of ESPN.com reports (via Twitter) that Oklahoma City is "aggressively shopping" Maynor.

Maynor, 25, was considered one of the league's more promising young backup point guards coming into the season, but has lost his place in the Thunder's rotation to Reggie Jackson. Since Christmas Day, Maynor has only appeared in 11 games for Oklahoma City, never playing more than 10 minutes.

Despite Maynor's lack of playing time, the Thunder's asking price remains high, according to Broussard. The former 20th overall pick has some value due to his contract. He's earning about $2.34MM this season, and will be eligible for restricted free agency at season's end, so his team could either extend him a qualifying offer or simply let his cap hit come off the books this summer.
