Props to N41D for reporting this first...
One plus is that it all but guarantees Corey Maggette will not get more than the MLE… They’ve got to renounce his sign and trade rights to make this deal work, so he’s out there for 5.5 million or whatever…
So, what this means is that we can no longer do a S&T for Maggette... no one can. So with everyone out there targeting Corey with their MLE, do the Mavs have what it takes to seperate themselves from the likes of Boston, Orlando, or even Phoenix?
I believe so, and it's because of one of the most outspoken and player-friendly owners in the league. Time to step up Mark... the money is even out there for him, but what are the Mavericks organization going to offer him that other teams wont?
[Note by Toddy, 07/01/08 9:55 PM MDT ] Dont worry, it just got worse... Spurs are reported as being the front runners for Maggette...
[Note by Toddy, 07/01/08 10:01 PM MDT ] DANGIT DANGIT DANGIT... again just got word that Boston has made offers to both Posey AND Maggette already
[Note by Toddy, 07/01/08 10:41 PM MDT ] Mavs agree to terms with Gerald Green... one year deal, not sure how much, which also raises the question: Does this deal take up any part of the MLE?
Can the Mavs lure Maggette here, without offering more money than other teams can?
