Corey Maggette is officially a free agent.

Maggette, the longest-tenured Clipper, filed paperwork today to opt out of the final season of his contract and immediately becomes one of the most attractive free agents in this off-season's market.

The only problem is, there may not be too many buyers.

Only the Memphis Grizzlies and Philadelphia 76ers have abundant cap space this summer, with the Clippers now joining that list. Other teams would be able to offer Maggette, who was owed $7 million had he remained with the Clippers, the lesser mid-level exception.

The Clippers have maintained they hope to re-sign Maggette; however, a sign-and-trade deal with him could also be in the team's plans."

Nice. One team is going to be very lucky with either of these players.

I really hope he goes to an actual contender. He is one of the most underrated players in the NBA and deserves to be in a much better situation than the one he was in when he was with the Clippers. Look at his stats. They are pretty good and can compare to numbers of some of the top players in the NBA.

His #'s are really inflated because Brand was out. His defense isn't too great, he's really only a good scorer. I can see him going to the Magic for the MLE.

Well one team will spend alot on Brand (prob Philly or back to LAC) so i see Maggette either going in a S and T or back to clippers casue he wont sign for MLE.

Not surprising at all. I would have been absolutely shocked if Corey didn't opt out. I'll be equally as surprised if they do actually re-sign him, unless they are willing to overpay. He doesn't want to be there. Look for him to bolt out of town (hopefully to Orlando).

Yeah, I didn't see the fact that Brand opted out until after I posted. That is only a mild surprise, but not a huge one either. He can get the max, even after an injury, so why not go out and get it...especially since the Clippers aren't contenders. Neither of them opting out surprise me.

although i can see what your saying, eltons was a big surprise to me. i think something will happen very quick with him. hopefully he signs with the clips tomorrow.

Same here. He'll be our starting SF. He is a type of player we need right now. Imagine a frontcourt of Maggette, CB4 and JO.
