Corey Maggette Willing To Take Minimum To Play For The Lakers

Corey MaggetteThe Los Angeles Lakers are beginning to fill their roster for next season, with the most recent move being the addition of Jordan Farmar. Plan B is officially underway, and the Lakers are seeing what they can do with a handful of veteran minimums.

Farmar and Chris Kaman will be great pieces to the Lakers’ one-season puzzle, and there are rumors that the team will also go after former Laker forward Lamar Odom. Odom and the Lakers do have mutual interest, and it will be great to see him back on the team that he helped win two championships.

Today on Mason and Ireland (ESPN 710 Radio), unrestricted free agent Corey Maggette expressed his willingness to sign a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Maggette: If you guys talk about the Lakers, that would definitely be a huge plus. You can’t beat playing for one of the greatest organizations in basketball, having an opportunity to play with Kobe and the guys that they have on there.

Mason and Ireland: Is that something you will be willing to do for the minimum?

Maggette: Of course I’d do it for the minimum. If you have an opportunity to play with that team? Definitely.

As of this point, is is unclear if the Lakers will go after Maggette, but if they do, there is a great chance he suits up for the team next season. Metta World Peace is on the verge of begin amnestied by the front office, so adding a small forward like Maggette would help fill the void.

Maggette last played for the Detroit Pistons, but appeared in only 18 games due to injuries.
