Eric Maynor picked by the Utah Jazz

My boy Eric Maynor gets picked by the Jazz at 20. I dont really have any knowledge above ncaa basketball, but I know Daren Williams is Utah's PG and is pretty good.

So does anyone think he will get to play at all? Maybe this will be good get to sit back and be learn and bulk up?

I think he will pan out to be a really good NBA player but he doesnt have the strength yet and isnt a superstar shooter yet either. He's one of the best clutch players and is the best true guard ive ever seen at the college level. Comparable to Steve Nash, in my opinion.

Re: Eric Maynor picked by the Utah Jazz

From Eric Maynor | NBADraft.net

NBA Comparison: Mark Jackson/Eric Snow

Strengths: Crafty point guard with a winning pedigree ... Single-handedly led VCU to national prominence after taking over the PG reigns his sophomore year ... Fearless performer in the clutch, stepping up in the biggest moments of the biggest games ... Despite being a one man show, rarely settled for quick forced shots or made teammates outcasts ... Extremely patient on the offensive end, allowing plays to unfold- no predetermined decisions ... Tremendous basketball IQ and understanding of court geometry ... Shows good court vision and ability to find the open man, averaging over 6 assists per contest in the 08-09 season ... Utilizes the change of pace dribble as well as anyone in this draft class, lulling defenders to sleep and blowing by them ... A master of getting into the paint off the bounce, either finishing well at the rim or getting to the FT line where he is very efficient ... Shot 82% from the stripe as a Senior, which is efficient ... Has an amazing ability to convert difficult shots ... Very tricky around the rim, shooting from odd and angles with the ability to adjust in midair ... Despite slight frame, shows deceptive strength finishing well through contact ... Possesses deep range on jumper (39% as a junior and 36% as a senior.) Has a solid mid-range and step back jumper as well ... Excellent hands on defense, averaging 1.7 steals per game his senior season ... Considered a high character guy and has the advantage of 4 years of college experience under his belt ...

Weaknesses: Not a top level athlete ... Foot speed and explosiveness are not optimal ... Extremely light at 164 lbs, whether he can add weight is a big question mark ... Gives the appearance of being heavy footed, lacking burst on his first step ... Was not forced to compete against upper echelon athletes on a regular basis in the mid-major CAA ... NBA will be a huge step up in class athletically, as well as size and strength ... Turnovers are a concern. Against top competition was very careless with the ball racking up some massive turnover totals (10 at Rhode Island, 7 vs. New Mexico and 8 at Oklahoma) ... This could be a product of team quality, as he was forced to supply a large majority of his team's offense ... Gets too fancy with passes at times, looking for the spectacular. Settles for too many jumpers when switched against a big in pick and roll situations ... Not a natural shooter. Lacks elevation on jumper, almost shooting a set shot from three ... Low release point and slow delivery from behind the arc ... Can be lax on the defensive side of the ball - has a tendency to take plays off on defense if his offense isn't flowing ... Will turn 22 in June and improved shooting stroke.

Notes: Scored team's final 9 points in 2007 CAA Championship game to overcome late 5 point deficit ... Hit game winning pull up jumper to defeat Duke in opening round of 2007 NCAA Tournament ...

PBN | Lasting impression

Great start to his career. I hope he keeps it up, and really hopes he gets traded to the Wizards at some point.

Re: Eric Maynor picked by the Utah Jazz

Also Oklahoma @ VCU is Saturday night and should be a really good game. Thinking it will be on at least espnu.

VCU is lead by big man Larry Sanders this year, who will probably be a top 10 pick if he leaves this year. He is 6'10" and has a 7'6" wingspan, and only weighs 230. He looks absolutely ridiculous, but he is a blocking machine and is fun as hell to watch.

No real connection. I went to VCU. When your school has no football team and you have a absolutely awesome player on your midmajor bball team he can make things really fun. Current students and alumni alike are big Eric Maynor fans, he wasnt a show boat and preferred passing over shooting, but he was exciting to watch and was the most clutch NCAA player ive ever seen. VCU Basketball has become really big down here over the last 8 or 9 years, and he was/is definitely part of that.

Re: Eric Maynor picked by the Utah Jazz

He won't get much playing time behind Deron Williams, he's one of the top PGs in the NBA, except for when Deron is injured or missing like he is now (daughter having surgery).

Maynor scored 24 points in 41 minutes last game vs. Cleveland on Saturday and had 13 points/11 assists against the Sixers the night before. When Williams returns, his playing time will go back to next to nothing (under 10 mins), but he's making the most of his chance to play right now. Williams missed 20 games to injury last season, but has been pretty reliable most of his career.

Re: Eric Maynor picked by the Utah Jazz

SALT LAKE CITY (AP)—Rookie Eric Maynor(notes) is getting some playing time for the short-handed Utah Jazz because of injuries.
The way he’s playing, Maynor can expect to still be on the court even when the rest of the Jazz get healthy.
Maynor scored 11 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter and helped the Utah Jazz stop a late surge by the Toronto Raptors and hold for a 104-91 victory Wednesday night.
Maynor and Deron Williams(notes) ran Utah’s backcourt for the fourth quarter and the combination of point guards was too much for the Raptors to overcome.

“He continues to impress me,” said Williams, who finished with 20 points and nine assists. “He’s playing great. He’s composed, he’s making plays. He takes a lot of pressure off a lot of people.”
Maynor had started the last two games as Williams left the team last week during a road trip to be with his young daughter as she went through medical tests for an undisclosed condition.
The Jazz were 1-1 under Maynor. He teamed with Williams for the fourth quarter after Toronto cut an 18-point lead to three.
The Raptors got within one point early in the fourth before the Jazz blew it open with their 17-2 run.
“You want to win at all times, but you also want to be a part of what’s going on out there,” said Maynor, who is averaging 17 points and seven assists in his last three games. “For me to get out there and get the minutes and be a part of what’s going on, I think it’s great.”

Re: Eric Maynor picked by the Utah Jazz

Impressive, still played 23 minutes with Deron back and playing basically the entire game. Looks like he's played his way into the lineup in a way that the coach can't leave him on the bench.

Re: Eric Maynor picked by the Utah Jazz

Well, as I expected, a return to reality for Maynor with Deron back.
