03:57 PM ET 02.21 | The Thunder traded point guard Eric Maynor to the Portland Trail Blazers just before the 2013 NBA trade deadline, reports ESPN.com's Marc Stein. It's not yet clear what (besides a trade exception) the Thunder will receive. Maynor will back up rookie of the year candidate Damian Lillard in Portland and will serve to bolster a pitiful bench. Maynor had been Russell Westbrook's deputy in OKC before tearing his ACL in the 2011-12 season. He spent four years at Virginia Commonwealth. The Thunder acquired him in a cap-cutting deal by the Jazz at the 2010 deadline.

Blazers needed a better back-up PG, good fit.
