Default Should the Clippers trade Corey Maggette?

Should the Clippers trade Corey Maggette?

It seems like he should go back to being a starter, yet he was used off the bench after getting hurt last season and there have been trade rumors involving him for a long time now.

woah, hard to say, maybe but maybe not... he's a real dominant offensive weapon, before his injury, he's averaging 26+ ppg, and was unstoppable! but now they have Elton Brand and Sam Cassell being their main offensive force, Maggette isn't getting much opportunities... if the Clips do not resign Cassell, they can put Livingston in the starting line-up, he's not such a pure scorer, then Maggette can stay... Starting Quinton Ross is a total insult to Maggette!

yea i would love to keep him. he could put alot of points on the board for us especially if cassell or mobley is having and off game. he needs to shape it up defensively. i remember when dunleavys first year as head coach he regarded maggette as his better perimeter defenders i think that his defence when did in past years because he concetrated on offense

he said that this summer hes gonna work on his defence so if he does that he prolly start next season

I remember reading an article(I'll post it later) talking about Mike Dunleavy and Maggette having a meeting. I guess that they agreed that Maggette would not be traded this summer, but if he wants to be starter, he better concentrate on defence, but if not, then Ross will be starter. which I like because Maggette is a valuable player and there were games in the playoffs that the Clippers would have lost without Maggette. I think the Clippers would have won game 5 aganst the Suns if he played in the 4th quarter and overtime.

As the Clips 6th man in 2007, he will be healthy and
give the team the energy to improve and take the Pacific Division.

take the Pacific division???!!! What about the suns??!! Don't forget Amare is coming back! lol

and Maggette isn't a 6th man!!! come on, Maggette >>>>>>> Ross! not even in his league! maybe rest Cassell more, let Livingston play more like i said, and let Maggette & Brand dominate offensively...

maybe trade Mobley... or he can be the WILDCARD...

I mentioned that, but I knew it was a pipe dream. The Sixers most likely won't trade Iggy.

The Clippers should keep Maggette. Him and and Brand are the 2 OG's of the Clippers. If Maggette plays smart and plays defense, he starts, if he doesn't, he doesn't start. Simple.

We can't trade Maggette. He's been a valuable member of the team for some time now. He does a lot more than Mobley on the court, he gives opposing teams fits because he can hit the "j" as well as drive to the basket. Granted more consistency on D is necessary but trading him would be a big mistake.

We already tried to trade him to the Pacers last year for Artest, and had it not been for injury concerns surrounding Maggette, the Pacers would have done the deal. I was all for the trade and given Peja's latest move and Maggette's return from injury, perhaps the Pacers are kicking themselves in retrospect.

Anyway, Maggette will never accept a 6th man role and probably won't even deal well with having to split major minutes for an entire season. I foresee issues if Dunleavy tries to incorporate him into some type of bench rotation.
