Corey Maggette practices fully

Keith Langlois of Pistons.com:

Corey Maggette practiced without restrictions today. Could play at PHI tomorrow if he responds well to activity.

Good for Corey Maggette, I guess. He’s seemingly been a fun presence in Detroit, and he’s in a contract year, so there are reasons to appreciate him finally playing.

But on a grander scale, I just worry Maggette will cut into the minutes of young players like Kyle Singler and Kim English. Those rookie wings need playing time to develop, and they’re more important to the Pistons’ future than Maggette is.

    If Stuckey continues to struggle i say rest him for a week or 2 so he can get over his migraine/headaches and start Maggette in his place until he can return at full health.

    I think he won’t impact anyone’s minutes, English has been benched for two straight games so I assume Maggette will be taking his minutes. 

    Any word on why English has been benched actually? He’s a good defender and perimeter threat, why not use him?

      Its all part of Lawrence Frank’s brilliant plan to make the Pistons as uninteresting as possible. IF WERE GOING TO SUCK WE GOTTA DO IT IN THE MOST BORING UNPRODUCTIVE WAY POSSIBLE

    This is going to be good, because Frank can’t mess it up, it fits his process. He’s old and he can score. He’s points you can cash in every night, dependable unlike the rest of the starting unit. This should lead to a couple of wins until he gets injured again

    As long as we keep losing, I don’t really care what second rounder gets minutes. If this team is going anywhere, it needs development out of its first rounders, more good drafts, and trades. Not 2nd rounders to fill up on minutes.

      I don’t think it matters what round they are drafted in. Singler has been just as productive as Drummond so far

        Drummond’s ceiling is an All-Star, Defensive Player of the Year.  Singler’s ceiling is Tayshaun Prince, circa 2004.  Productivity in the first ten games of their career does not mean a single thing.

    more madness.
    someone please explain why magette will play for detroit this year?
    exactly how will he help the team in its current phase, which is supposedly a rebuilding phase?
    i’m sure magette will help improve the team marginally.
    but…so what?
