VCU’s Maynor drafted 20th by Utah

Former VCU men’s basketball standout point guard, Eric Maynor was selected 20th by the Utah Jazz last night in the NBA’s draft. In a ‘down draft’–according to experts–Maynor was the seventh point guard (or nine total) drafted in the first round.

Utah is a great fit for Maynor, mainly because they’re a good team. (They made the playoffs this year, losing in the first-round to the eventual champion LA Lakers in the first round). Sure they already have a solid point guard, Deron Williams, but this means that Maynor can develop slowly as a pro player and work on areas of deficit (notably his jump shot). Plus, Utah’s got a great coach (Jerry Sloan–the longest tenured NBA coach) and Maynor will be winning games (unlike some of the players drafted earlier in the round.)
