Corey Maggette wants to work in an NBA front office

Long time Los Angeles Clippers swingman and current free agent Corey Maggette says he wants to play one more year and then move into an NBA front office role, this according to Hoopsworld.

Per Alex Kennedy:

At this point in his career, Maggette wants to play for a contender. He has made more than $89 million since entering the NBA in 1999, so he could likely be signed for a one-year deal worth the veteran’s minimum. Sources close to Maggette say that he briefly considered retiring this summer so that he could attempt to land a job within an NBA front office. He recently took part in the NBPA’s Leadership Development Program, which essentially grooms current players to become executives. However, it’s looking like he’ll play one more season and then attempt to join a front office next offseason.

Maggette is just a season removed from averring 15 points a game with the Charlotte Bobcats and shouldn’t struggle to find a home on a contender, assuming the price is right.

The former Duke product spent this past season with the Detroit Pistons, playing in 18 games, averaging 5.3 points in 14 minutes a game.
