(Sports Network) - The Washington Wizards and free agent guard Eric Maynor
have reportedly agreed to a multi-year contract.
According to multiple media sources, the deal is two years at the biannual
exception. However, free agent contracts cannot be signed until July 10.
Maynor, selected by the Utah Jazz with the 20th overall pick in the 2009 NBA
Draft, has spent the bulk of his career as a reserve for the Oklahoma City
Thunder before being moved to the Portland Trail Blazers at the trade
deadline last year.
In 64 games last season, Maynor averaged 4.5 points and 2.8 assists per game.
Over a four-year career with the Jazz, Thunder, and Blazers, the 26-year-old
has averaged 4.5 points, 3.0 assists and 1.3 rebounds per contest. He missed
most of the 2011-12 season due to an ACL injury.
The move gives the Wizards a solid backup behind franchise player John Wall.
Washington used five different point guards last year, as the team battled
through various injuries and roster changes.
