The Spurs waived Corey Maggette on Tuesday.
Maggette said that he'd retire if he didn't make the team, so this may have been his last hurrah in an NBA uniform. He reportedly may join the Pistons in a front-office capacity, after a 14-year NBA career that he'll finish with averages of 16.0 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists per game.

Corey Maggette scored 10 points in 27 minutes as a starter on Sunday, and Gregg Popovich said that he's "caught on to what [the Spurs] are trying to do."

Maggette went 8-of-8 from the FT line and he could bring some offense and SF depth to the bench, but his roster spot isn't guaranteed. There will be extra scrutiny on him in the coming week because he said he plans to retire if the Spurs waive him.

Corey Maggette said that he'll retire from the NBA if he doesn't make the Spurs roster this season.

Sam Young was waived this week which gives a boost to Maggette's efforts, though even if he makes the team he'll play limited minutes as a backup SF. "If I could get an opportunity here, it would be great," he said. "If not, this game has been good to me." Maggette is only 33 years old but he's played 14 NBA seasons and injuries have taken a heavy toll.

Corey Maggette will start at small forward on Sunday.

The Spurs are just giving Maggette a look, so it's not something they'll be doing during the season. Obviously, Kawhi Leonard's job is safe and he could have a monster season in 2013-14.

Corey Maggette will join the Spurs for training camp.

His slashing style could fit in with Coach Pop's system, but he's no spring chicken anymore at age 33. Maggette's hamstring issues have cost him a number of games over his career and his lack of durability will be a major roadblock to him providing consistent production. He's no lock to make the team.

Corey Maggette said that he would "love to come back" to the Detroit Pistons.

"Overall, I’m just waiting and being patient and see what opportunity comes," Maggette said. "You always got to explore your options, but if the Pistons want me back, it’s great, man. I would love to come back." His hamstrings have been one of the most troublesome areas among all NBA players, so it would be a mild shock to see the Pistons take a chance and bring him back. The team does have Luigi Datome to back up Josh Smith a small forward, so it's not really a pressing need.

Free agent Corey Maggette is hoping to play one more season before exploring front office opportunities.

Maggette, 33, has appeared in just 50 games over the last two seasons. There hasn't been any known interest in him this offseason. Per Hoopsworld, Maggette recently took part in the NBPA's Leadership Development Program, a precursor to an executive job.

Corey Maggette had his broken nose reset and is probable for Saturday.

Of course, Maggette has been a DNP-Coach's Decision since December 15, a span now approaching four months, so despite being available, he's unlikely to get off the bench. It's safe to say he won't be back in Detroit next year.

Corey Maggette, who hasn't since December 15, said that he has never received a reason for his benching.

"No one told me anything," he said. "Do I know why? No. Is there a reason why I shouldn't be playing? No." The Pistons will continue to play their younger players and evaluate their future, and we think it's safe to say that the veteran won't be back with the team next season.

Corey Maggette hopes to sign a new contract with an NBA team this summer.

Retirement has been a possibility for Maggette, but he's feeling confident after "a full year recovering," which is to say not playing. He hasn't played in a game in nearly three months but he's open to returning as a mentor with the Pistons. Regardless of where he lands, the former fantasy stud is no longer a viable option.

Corey Maggette is not interested in pursuing a buyout.

Some people might have forgotten that Maggette was even still in the league as he hasn't played in a game since December 15 against the Pacers. "No, not at all," Maggette said when asked if he wanted a buyout. "I don't even know how it works." Maggette could retire after the current season.

Corey Maggette, who has not played since December 15, will not rejoin the rotation after the Tayshaun Prince trade.

Maggette has already talked about retiring after the season, and the Pistons merely acquired him for his expiring contract.

Corey Maggette received another DNP-CD against the Knicks on Thursday.

Maggette missed time earlier in the month with the flu, although it seems like he's just not getting any run these days. Even when healthy, he's a non-factor for fantasy owners.

Corey Maggette (flu) is not expected to be available for the Pistons on Saturday.

The veteran SF has been racking up DNP-CDs recently, stuck behind Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye in the rotation. Even at full health he's not a fantasy option.

Corey Maggette will be inactive Friday night against the Wizards.

Maggette has played sparingly all season and received DNP-CD's the last two games. He should be nowhere near any fantasy lineup.
