Oklahoma City Thunder guard Eric Maynor has two camps to tend to in the near future.  First, he’ll co-host a youth camp July 16-20 in Richmond, VA before getting ready to test out his surgically repaired knee in training camp later this Fall in OKC.  Maynor tore his ACL nine games into the 2011-12 season.

Maynor, once a star for Virginia Commonwealth University, will return to Richmond to teach the youth in the community.  Former VCU teammate Joey Rodriguez, who played overseas in Turkey and Puerto Rico this past year, will co-host the event.  “The kids will also get to see us do our workouts so they can see how hard we train in order to play pro basketball,” Rodriguez told me.  “We’ll be there the entire time.”

Maynor dominated in college, averaging 22.4 PPG and 6.2 APG in his senior season.  I’ve always thought he had a shot to be a decent player in the NBA and he certainly has done a solid job as a reserve, playing behind stars Deron Williams in Utah and now Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City.  The Thunder certainly could have used his help defending the perimeter against the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.  Maynor seems confident that his knee will be 100% by the time of training camp and if so, the 25-year-old could be due for a breakout season in 2012-13.
