Orlando dumped Maggette after a pretty good rookie year to make room to sign all-time Magic favorite Grant Hill whose durability and loyalty have come to represent just what the Magic organization stands for. Since the trade Maggette showed steady improvement to become a 22 point, 5.6 rebound guy shooting .384 from 3 point range.
The Sentinel "reports" today that they know a guy who knows Corey who may also know someone who works for the Magic (a ball-boy perhaps? Or one of those hot dancer chicks?) And that Maggette wants to leave Clipperland and come to Orlando. If this is remotely true, Maggette must formally opt out of his contract for $7 million next year.
Of all the rumors out there, this one could actually work. Maggette would be a very good swing man providing a big improvement over Bogans or Evans at the 2.
Of course, the Magic would have to either sign & trade or use their entire mid-level exception to get the deal done. This could prove too complicated for the staff to accomplish, and besides the Magic have not had four quality players on the team since the Finals years of Shaq, Penny, Horace and Nick.
