First of all lets compare Maggs and Wallace...Liingston2Seb said:. He would add much needed perimetre defense
. He is an above average rebounder
. Shoots a high percentage from the field (.549)
. He has the ability to drive to the basket and score
. He has a very managable contract
. He is 24-years-old, which means that the areas in which he is lacking can be worked on (jumpshot)
IMO I would prefer to have Wallace on this squad over Maggette as he does not demand the ball as much on the offense to have an impact (2.2 OFF RPG). Also the recent troubles concerning Maggette's conflict with Dunleavy gives more insentive as to why we would want an obedient player who does excactly what he is told by the coach in return for Maggette. I am not sure what package we could offer in return for Wallace or how high Charlotte rate both him and Maggette.
Maggete is a better scorer, just as good a rebounder, is a good defender, gets to the line more, shoots around the same % as Wallace for his career, attacks the basket as hard and as much as anyone in the NBA, is a better all around player, has proven his value (unlike Wallace), is under contract longer at around the same price, and is only 3 years older.
Trading Maggette for Wallace is a big step backwards.
