AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Corey Maggette is preparing to play for his sixth NBA team after an offseason trade. He was limited to only 32 games in 2011-12 because of injuries, and it wasn't long ago he was wondering if he would even keep playing after this coming season.
That was before he had a chance to settle in with the Detroit Pistons and work with conditioning coach Arnie Kander. With a new season on the horizon, he's feeling rejuvenated.
Maggette was acquired by the Pistons in a pre-draft deal that sent Ben Gordon to Charlotte. The trade saved Detroit about $15 million in salary, and the 32-year-old Maggette arrives with one year left on his contract. That makes him an unusual fit for a team that's rebuilding around younger players.
