Corey Maggette To Join For Spurs To Camp

September 26 2013 at 12:10pm CST By Luke Adams

Of all the free agents still on the market, none made a higher salary last season than Corey Maggette's $10.92MM. Maggette won't earn anywhere near that amount this year, but it appears he'll at least be given a chance to earn an NBA roster spot. According to Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report (via Twitter), the veteran swingman will join the Spurs for training camp.

Maggette, 33, was sent to the Pistons by the Bobcats last summer, and didn't see much playing time in Detroit during the last year of his contract. Still, at least one report indicated there was mutual interest in a new deal, and we heard as recently as last month that Maggette was still open to re-signing with the Pistons. Instead, he'll join a Spurs team that has 14 players on guaranteed contracts, leaving one open roster spot.

Shams Charania of RealGM.com reported yesterday that the Spurs had reached an agreement to bring Sam Young to camp as well, so it appears Maggette and Young will compete for that last opening on the club's roster. It's not clear yet whether more players will be invited to Spurs camp before October.
