His return is supposedly what gave OKC the confidence to move Harden.
Harden + Maynor vs. Martin + Jackson... not a tough choice.
They moved Harden for money. That's it. Jackson has outplayed Maynor in practice and on the court and took over his spot as the backup PG, Maynor has contributed nothing this year and was just wasting away on the bench. It's a good move for both teams.
I was excited when I first heard this, because at one point he was advertised a bit like Bledsoe, but then I remembered I hadn't heard his name in a while and after checking the stats, looks like he has not made any improvements. Could somebody who watches him routinely let me know what I can expect from him in Portland with a potentially larger role than he had in OKC?
