Corey Maggette Will Opt out this Summer

Forward Corey Maggette will officially opt out of his contract at the end of the month and become an unrestricted free agent. Elton Brand can do the same, but recently said he plans to remain a Clipper.

Dunleavy said he believes that both will be playing for the Clippers next season.

"The reality is that there’s no money out there," Dunleavy said of the market value for free agents. Later, he added, "People will come to reality and probably make a deal. That’s how I see it." [Los Angeles Times]
