Let's say that Corey Maggette decided to play for the Rockets, would he start at SF or be the 6th man?

Going to Houston and playing SF or 6th man?

PG Rafer
SG T-mac
SF Battier or Corey Maggette
PF Scola
C Yao
6th man - Corey Maggette. Not sure if he went to Houston if he would start at SF or be the 6th man.

Honestly, I'm not sure how to answer this question. Like I said in another post, I don't know how he could coexist with Battier unless one of them would be willing to take reduced minutes. One answer would be for him to be the 6th man, backing up both Battier and McGrady at the 2 to still get decent minutes. But why would he come here to play off the bench when he could start in San Antonio or elsewhere? I think if he came here, he'd probably be starting at SF and Battier would probably be coming off the bench because thats just how unselfish Battier is.

Realistically though, I don't see him coming here at all, so I don't think we need to worry about it.

I see him coming off the bench to create more bench scoring unless he ask to start. They only way we might be able to get him if we guarantee a starting spot.

Spurs where more aggresive with getting him, he is not coming here. We are too busy waiting on Barry and Landry. I can hardly wait!!!!!!!!

Hypothetically, if we did get Maggette, he absolutely should start. My lineup would be Tmac, Yao, Scola, CM and Battier. Tmac plays point forward and Rafer leads your bench.

Agreed.

And there's no reason to replace Battier in the starting lineup either.

Heh, we might as well, he handles the ball anyway and on defence just switch with Battier on the point guards. Just an idea don't shoot me dead!!!!!

I would put him on the bench, but it doesn't matter he won't be here for us so it doesn't matter.
