Maggette may have strong eye for Orlando during free agency
With the Orlando Magic having so many guards in the final year of their contracts — and with center Dwight Howard locked in for many years — there will be free agents all over the league hoping for a ride to Orlando.
Shooting guard Corey Maggette of the Los Angeles Clippers will be among those looking to see what the Magic will do. Maggette has an option to make $8.2 million with the Clips next season. The Magic probably could get him for the mid-level exception ($5.5 million) if they extend it out for five years. Maggette started his career in Orlando, but he was traded after one year during the salary cap purge of 2000.
"We'll sit down this summer and see where it goes," Maggette said before the Clippers were pounded by the Magic last week. "We're not going to the playoffs, so we'll have plenty of time to make that decision. My parents will be happy wherever I play."
Posting this because it pertains to the Clips...
Gotta say Howard, Lewis, Turk, and CMagg would be an awsome combination... EDIT:
