Corey Maggette, general manager?

Corey Maggette hasn’t made much of an on-court contribution with the Pistons this season, but there are plenty of stories chronicling his quickly becoming a respected voice in the locker room. That quality might be a good omen for his future career plans. Via David Mayo of MLive:

Maggette, in his 14th NBA season, was non-committal Wednesday when asked if he might play a 15th.  With his contract expiring after this season and his next one not likely to have the same value, retirement is a strong possibility.

Just in case, he has an idea of what he might do next.

“Who knows what will happen?  Who knows?  I might be a guy that might be in a front-office position,” Maggette said.  “I’m already preparing myself for that as I finish this career.

“The biggest thing is to worry about what’s going on now and let the future take care of itself.  We don’t even know if we’re going to wake up tomorrow.”

Mayo also noted that Maggette, who played one college season at Duke, has nearly completed his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Arizona State.
