Eric Maynor, Wizards reportedly agree to multi-year contract
Free-agent backup point guard Eric Maynor and the Washington Wizards have agreed to a multi-year contract, The Washington Post’s Michael Lee reported Monday.
Terms of the deal weren’t immediately disclosed, but Lee reported that it is likely to be a two-year deal worth around $2 million per season.
The move fills a need for the Wizards, who were looking for a relatively young point guard to back up star John Wall. The 6-foot-3 Maynor played well last season after being traded to the Portland Trail Blazers, averaging 6.9 points and 4.0 assists per game while backing up Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard.
In four NBA seasons, the former VCU star Maynor has averaged 4.5 points and 2.0 assists per game in 10.6 minutes. In addition to Portland, he has played for the Oklahoma City Thunder and Utah Jazz.
