Corey Maggette

  1. Spurs sign Josh Howard to non-guaranteed contract

    Oct 25, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

    Josh Howard

    The Spurs were looking for a veteran, reliable backup to play behind Kawhi Leonard. They went first with Corey Maggette, but that didn’t work out. So now they are trying Josh Howard — the Spurs just signed him to a non-guaranteed contract, reports the San Antonio Express-News. This is a roll of the dice by…

  2. Spurs waive Corey Maggette, he said he will retire

    Oct 15, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT

    Corey Maggette

    Corey Maggette said over the weekend that if he couldn’t make the Spurs roster — and it was a long shot going in — he was going to retire. Tuesday the Spurs announced they have waived Maggette. This looks like the end of a 14-year NBA career. In those years Maggette was a solid overall…

  3. Report: Corey Maggette will retire if he doesn’t make Spurs roster

    Oct 13, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Corey Maggette

    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…

  4. Corey Maggette, Sam Young try to earn last Spurs roster spot

    Oct 1, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Corey Maggette

    The San Antonio Spurs have 14 guaranteed contracts on their roster and they may go into the season with just that many. But they can add a 15th guy. They have identified a need — a physical three who can play limited minutes off the bench in certain matchups as a backup to Kawhi Leonard…

  5. Report: Spurs add Corey Maggette to training camp roster

    Sep 26, 2013, 3:27 PM EDT

    Corey Maggette

    Corey Maggette had a rough season with the Pistons last year. He appeared in only 18 games — none after Dec. 15, for reasons unknown — while putting up career-low averages in points, minutes, and field goal percentage. Maggette has been known throughout his 14-year career for his ability to score and get to the…

  7. Corey Maggette, front office executive? That’s what he wants.

    Corey Maggette

    Certain guys you see going through the NBA and you think, “that guy could move into the front office seamlessly. Chauncey Billups is a guy right now that fits that mold and he could get a shot with the Pistons. Corey Maggette? He wants it to happen and has taken steps that way, according to…

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    Just three seasons ago, the Golden State Warriors were a 26-win team with Monta Ellis and Corey Maggette as their two leading scorers — this was a team in need of a radical overhaul. Enter new ownership willing to invest in winning, new players to go with then rookie Stephen Curry, a new coach in…

  10. Three Stars: Career highs for three guys

    Nov 14, 2012, 12:52 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Milwaukee Bucks

    The soulless pursuit of stats by players on bad teams (or as I like to call it, the Corey Maggette special) can often be pretty brutal to watch. No one likes watching a guy play isolation basketball the whole game, hogging possessions and looking off teammates. Three Stars doesn’t reward that type of behavior, but…

    Rodney Stuckey Chris Bosh

    We at PBT asked the question yesterday — what is going on with Rodney Stuckey? The attacking Pistons guard is 1-of-23 shooting this season, is not attacking the rim like he used to, not hunting out contact in the lane, not knocking down his shots and is being marginalized in the Pistons offense. It’s pretty…

    Corey Maggette

    The Detroit Free Press reports that Pistons F Corey Maggette will have an MRI on his calf this week due to a strain he suffered against the Heat the other night. Maggette was on crutches after the game but walking on his own power Friday, and the MRI is considered precautionary. The Pistons either desperately…

  15. NBA Preview: Charlotte Bobcats

    Oct 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Last season: Worst. Team. Ever. Literally, no team has ever finished with a worse winning percentage than the 7-59 Bobcats. That had to sting owner Michael Jordan. They were the least efficient team in the league on offense and defense (they both scored the fewest and allowed the most points per possession in the league).…

  16. NBA Preview: Detroit Pistons

    Sep 28, 2012, 4:57 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe, D.J. White, DeSagana Diop

    Last season: They are a rebuilding team, so you don’t expect them to be good and the 25-41 record reflected that. But they flew under a lot of people’s radar because they are just not that interesting to watch. They are not good on offense, not good on defense, they have a couple nice players…

  17. Pistons trade Ben Gordon to Bobcats for Corey Maggette

    Jun 26, 2012, 9:24 PM EDT

    Ben Gordon

    Detroit just saved a lot of money and Charlotte just got someone who can at least put the ball in the hole. The Pistons and Bobcats have swapped overpaid scorers, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. The Detroit Pistons have traded Ben Gordon and a lottery-protected draft pick in 2013 to the Charlotte Bobcats for Corey…

    It’s a fun mental exercise to make us feel smarter than GMs — who are the 10 most overpaid players in the NBA? Dave Berri — the co-author of The Wages of Wins and the economics professor who has consulted with NBA teams — came up with a list for CNBC that got a lot…

    Let’s start off with some instant rebuttal to the premature outcry that headline above is going to muster. First, the basics. The Charlotte Bobcats, in a continuing pattern regarding their awful, horrendous, terrible franchise history, lost the lottery’s No.1 pick despite a 1-in-4 chance to land Anthony Davis. The Bobcats are an awful, awful basketball…

  20. Paul Silas out as Bobcats coach. Is that really a surprise?

    Apr 30, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Paul Silas

    After leading a Bobcats team to the worst winning percentage in NBA history, the Charlotte Bobcats announced they are not bringing back coach Paul Silas, team president Rod Higgens said. Yes, real shocker there. Charlotte went 7-59 under Silas last season, and while he certainly deserves some blame the fact is that  owner Michael Jordan…

    Knicks Bobcats Basketball

    The Charlotte Bobcats are the worst team in NBA history. Charlotte fell to the Knicks by 20 points, 104-84, on a night when the Knicks basically gave their best players a night off. On a night the Bobcats should have played with desperation, they were passive and just missed good looks. It was their 23rd…

    What’s really going to happen, they’re going to get worse? Corey Maggette was brought in this season to provide some scoring punch for a Bobcats team we all knew was going to struggle putting points up on the board. And when he has been healthy he has scored 15 points a game, although he is…

    The Bobcats are in Hell. Not literally. They’re still alive. They still get paid. They’re operational. They’re not tortured with fire. Other than that, though, yeah, pretty hell like. The team is on pace for historic levels of failure. It is literally just about as bad as it can get. There is nearly no reason…
