The Rockets should sign him for the MLE.
He is going to the perfect fit.

Doubtful. I don't see Michael Finley coming back, so if we do get Maggette:

PG - Parker
SG - Maggette
SF - Bruce
PF - Duncan
C - Thomas?

Manu would still come off the bench, but if we get Maggette we are going to need Bruce in that starting lineup for defensive purposes.

Thats pretty much the most any interested teams can offer him.

The reason Maggette opted out isnt to make more money this year, its to get a gauranteed long-term deal. The Clippers aren't offering him one because now they have Thornton.

By signing for the MLE, he might make less money THIS season than if he didnt opt out, but he gaurantees himself MORE money in the future. Otherwise his only choice was to play next season at 8 million with no long term offer from the Clippers, and have to risk the possibility of something happening and him never getting another check again. By doing this he's gauranteeing himself 30 more million dollars.

Basically his choices were:

play for 5 million this season, gaurantee yourself 25 million more in the future

or play for 8 million this season and risk never seeing another check again

Lame, why would he go to SA and not the Lakers?
His best friend is Kobe, and LA need a shooting SF.
Move Odom to the bench...**** you Corey.

LOL

so far I've heard that Ron Artest and Kobe are best friends, Baron Davis and Kobe are best friends, and Cory Maggette and Kobe are best friends.

Laker fans are funny because they have no shame in the fact that they are such blatant self-overrating bratts and agenda-whores. They're just so blunt about it.

Ron is best friends with Lamar Odom.
Corey is best friends with Bryant.

Those are facts kid, go read an article or something, educate your brain...feed it once in a while. Corey came to Kobe's MVP celebration numb nuts.

After the year he had, he's sorta getting the shaft(Through nearly 35 million in guranteed bank aint nothing to sneeze at). He should be making a starting salary at around 11-12 million. Getting him for the MLE is an absolute steal.

Yup, he's one of the most underpaid players of all time, but thats what happens when your agent opens his mouth and says you want 11 mil
