Maggette a Spur?

Spurs Set to Pursue Corey Maggette

Two seasons after the Spurs unsuccessfully tried to trade for Corey Maggette, they appear to be trying to recruit him.

According to two NBA sources, one from each conference, the Spurs are preparing to make an offer to Maggette, who became an unrestricted free agent Tuesday when he opted out of the final year of his contract with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Details are not known, but the Spurs are believed to be poised to offer the 28-year-old guard-forward their full mid-level exception worth about $5.8 million for the first year, the sources say.

Maggette, who gave up $7 million to nullify his Clippers’ contract, would seem to satisfy the Spurs’ annual search for a young, athletic scorer on the wing. A 6-foot-6 slasher, Maggette has averaged 16.1 points during a nine-year NBA career, including 22.1 per game last season.

Spurs general manger R.C. Buford declined to comment on negotiations with any particular free agent.

If Boston and Orlando are throwing their mid level exceptions at Maggette, why doesn't BC?

Because we don't want him

Plus why would he come to Toronto when he could go to a contender like Boston or San Antonio?

Who wouldn't want a 20-point scorer and a free throw machine on their roster?

I wish we would. Although i doubt he'd come to Toronto for the same money that he could get in San Antonio,Boston,Orlando.

Yeah, it's unfortunate.
