Late last month, there was talk that free agent forward Corey Maggette preferred to play for a contender and could likely be had for the veteran's minimum. Today, the 33-year-old forward told ESPN.com that he wouldn't mind playing for the Pistons again, according to a staff report by the Detroit Free Press. The 14-year-veteran played sparingly for then-head coach Lawrence Frank last season, appearing in 18 contests and averaging 14.3 MPG.
“Overall, I’m just waiting and being patient and see what opportunity comes…You always got to explore your options, but if the Pistons want me back, it’s great, man. I would love to come back.”
Interestingly enough, we heard back in March of the mutual interest between Maggette and the Pistons about a return for 2012/13, but with the team now carrying 15 players under contract, a reunion doesn't seem all that likely at this point.
