Bobcats just traded the expiring contract of Corey Maggette for Ben Gordon and Detroit's protected 2013 first round pick.
Thoughts? Ben Gordon makes 14 million dollars over the 13-14 season, so it gives us a lot less flexibility for next seasons free agency. I think it's pretty safe to assume that won't really matter though.
What's more important is that while I'm not unhappy to see Maggette go, Ben Gordon has had a terrible time in Detroit over the past two seasons and might already be strongly on the decline at 28 years old. We'll have to wait and see whether he can contribute.
