San Antonio Spurs add Corey Maggette to training camp roster

The San Antonio Spurs have an uncanny way to turn once forgotten players into efficient role players, something they hope they can do with Corey Maggette who they recently invited to their training camp.

Per Jared Zwerling:

Corey Maggette will be joining the Spurs for training camp. Great locker room guy, could provide needed scoring, esp. w/ Pop’s rest methods.

Despite a fourteen year career, Maggette is still just 33-years-old (will be 34 in November) and assuming he has enough juice left in his tank, could provide a nice veteran spark off the Spurs’ bench.

Maggette last played for the Detroit Pistons during the 2012-13 season, though did so sparingly after missing much of the season with injury – the underlying downside to his career.

The former Duke product has only played 70+ games one time since the 2008-09 season, so he needs a role where he can play limited minutes to maintain his health, something the Spurs would likely be able to provide.

Seems like a solid pairing and another typical Spurs move, that often work out so well for all parties involved.
