From drafting DeShaun Thomas with the 58thpick in the second round nearly a year ago, and then inviting players like Corey Maggette and Sam Young to San Antonio for training camp this past season, it’s probably clear by their roster moves, the San Antonio Spurs have been pursuing a backup small forward since the team […]
Corey Maggette can now begin his climb to the top of the NBA’s executive mountain.
After saying on Monday that he would retire if he didn’t make the Spurs, Maggette was waived by San Antonio on Tuesday according SB Nation.
Maggette played in just 18 games last season for the Detroit Pistons, averaging 5.3 points on 35 percent shooting. Maggette has missed significant time...
Corey Maggette said on Sunday that he will retire as a basketball player if he does not make the San Antonio Spurs' roster.
Maggette added he knew making the Spurs' roster would be an uphill battle on a non-guranteed contract, but a chance he wanted to take given he had no other offers.
