Corey Maggette has played 14 NBA seasons, and has been known throughout his career as a talented offensive player with an above average ability to get to the free throw line.
After a frustrating year in Detroit, Maggette received a training camp invite from the Spurs, though with the team already committed to 14 guaranteed contracts for the upcoming season, he knew going in that making the team might be a bit of a challenge.
It hasn’t yet been decided whether or not Maggette will remain on the roster, but if the Spurs should choose to go in a different direction, it doesn’t appear as though Maggette will be petitioning other teams to give him a shot.
Corey Maggette says he will retire if he doesn’t make Spurs.
Maggette also said he knew the deal coming in to camp. Knows it will be uphill battle. Had no other offers, thought he’d take a stab.
Corey Maggette: “If I could get an opportunity here, it would be great. If not, this game has been good to me.”
The remarks are interesting considering that Maggtte is technically still in the running for a spot, and Spurs management might wonder if this is a sign Maggette isn’t fully committed mentally to going through the grind of a 15th professional season.
