Maynor added that his playmaking skills should help offset the loss of Harden's set-up skills, an aspect of Harden's game that many think the Thunder will miss most.

“Of course, that's how I play,” Maynor said when asked if his distributing skills will help. “Me and James were play-making for each other and the rest of the second unit. But I'm going to have to take more responsibility on that now.”

MEET AND GREET

Serge Ibaka and Perry Jones III will be at the grand opening of Dick's Sporting Goods in Moore, meeting and greeting fans on Saturday.

Beginning at 8 a.m., fans can pick up wristbands at the store. The first 150 fans with wristbands will be able to get their picture taken with Ibaka and Jones inside the store.

The two will appear at the store between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m.

The address is 760 SW 19 Street.
