Corey Antoine Maggette (pronounced /məˈɡɛti/; born November 12, 1979 in Melrose Park, Illinois) is an American professional basketball player in the National Basketball Association, for the Charlotte Bobcats. He excelled at Fenwick High School in Oak Park, Illinois, where he was an All-American in basketball and also an Illinois high school state track finalist in long jump and triple jump. Along with former Clippers teammate Elton Brand and college teammate William Avery, Maggette is notable as one of the first Duke players to leave before the end of his athletic eligibility during the tenure of coach Mike Krzyzewski.

Maggette, playing as a 6 ft 6 in (1.98 m), 225 lb (102 kg; 16.1 st) small forward, was selected out of Duke University by the Seattle SuperSonics with the 13th overall pick in the 1999 NBA Draft. He was traded shortly thereafter to the Orlando Magic, as a part of the deal which sent Horace Grant from Magic to SuperSonics.

Maggette played one season in Orlando before signing with the Los Angeles Clippers the following season. During his career with the Clippers, Maggette established himself as a solid forward and developed into a perennial 15+ per game scorer. Known for excellent jumping ability as well as his propensity to create contact and get to the free throw line—is consistently among the league leaders in free throws attempted and made. Maggette participated in the Slam Dunk Contest at the 2001 NBA All-Star Weekend. He experienced a good year in 2004–05, touting career highs in points, rebounds, assists and free throw percentage. Bothered by a nagging foot injury, he sat out much of the 2005–06 season. However, he returned to the court strongly during the 2006–07 season despite an alleged feud with coach Mike Dunleavy. Maggette had a career night against the Los Angeles Lakers on April 12, 2007, scoring 39 points to secure a 118–110 victory after recovering from a 17-point deficit. His previous career high in a single game was 38 points.
