Corey Maggette said on Sunday that he will retire as a basketball player if he does not make the San Antonio Spurs' roster.

Maggette added he knew making the Spurs' roster would be an uphill battle on a non-guranteed contract, but a chance he wanted to take given he had no other offers.

"If I could get an opportunity here, it would be great," Maggette said. "If not, this game has been good to me.”

Maggette posted 10 points on one of four shooting in Sunday's preseason game against the Phoenix Suns.
