. 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.
First of all lets compare Maggs and Wallace...

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.

I agree with most of what you said but what? Good defender? Maggette may be athletic but it doesn't transfer to the defensive aspect of his game. Wallace is a 2steals 2blocks per game player, there are not many of those around. If you believe that Maggette is such a superior player to Wallace what would your opinion of a:

Corey Maggette

-FOR-

Gerald Wallace and Primoz Brezec

Offseason trade?
I never said he was better then Wallace. Maggs can hold his own defensively, everyone knows what kind of a defender Wallace is.

I really wouldnt do that trade. If all we had to do to get Pierce was add someone with Maggs, I wouldnt turn around and trade him for Wallace and Brezec, not to mention Maggs really means a lot to the Clippers. He and Brand are the heart and soul of the team from those horrible years.
