Corey Maggette is traded from Golden State to Milwaukee

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Milwaukee Bucks received the frontcourt scoring threat they were seeking eventhough a big contract was involved.

The Bucks acquired forward Corey Maggette from the Golden State Warriors.

Bucks also received a second-round draft pick from the Warriors while giving up guard Charlie Bell and center Dan Gadzuric.

Maggette played in 70 games with 49 starts for Golden State in 2009-2010, averaging 19.8 points per game. He is expected to provide offense for the Bucks who may lose John Salmons, who can opt out of his contract and become a free agent on July 1.

An 11-year veteran, Maggette ranked 19th in the NBA in field goal percentage (.516) last season and had the league’s highest scoring average for a player who played fewer than 30 minutes per game. He has three years and $31 million remaining on his contract.

Don Nelson is the NBA’S winningest coach

Former Iowa Hawkeye Don Nelson has overtaken Lenny Wilkens as the NBA’s winningest coach. “Lenny has been an idol of mine for a long time,” Nelson said.

His Golden State Warriors beat the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night, 116-107 to give their coach win number 1,333 for his career.

Nelson’s career as a head coach started with Milwaukee in 1976 when he replaced Larry Costello 19 games into the season and he didn’t have an assistant coach to help him.

In 31 years as a coach, Nelson is 1,333-1,061 in his career where he has made stops in Milwaukee, New York, Dallas and Golden State twice. He won five titles as a player, has been coach of the year three times, but has never made the NBA Finals as a coach. He is the only coach with at least 1,000 career victories who hasn’t been inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Nelson, a Red Auerbach protege’, has a reputation as the “mad scientist” because of his experimentation with lineups and offensive plays to fit his teams that weren’t the most talented, lacked height and physical attributes that he needed. In his first stint with Golden State in the late ’80′s, he came up with the famous “Run T-M-C” lineup which consisted of guards Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin to make the Warriors one of the more entertaining and explosive teams in the league at that time.

Among active coaches, Jerry Sloan of Utah (1,188) and the Lakers’ Phil Jackson (1,095) are the closest to Nelson on the wins list. All three coaches played against each other in the “old school” NBA.

Golden State holds off Toronto; Don Nelson ties career wins mark

compiled from news, wire and internet reports

Former Celtics player and current Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson, a Red Auerbach disciple, tied Lenny Wilkens for the most wins by an NBA coach on Sunday night.  The Warriors held off the Toronto Raptors 113-112 in Toronto.

The win was the 1,332nd for Nelson, who can pass Wilkens when Golden State plays at Washington on Tuesday.

The Warriors dodged a bullet, which saw Toronto’s Chris Bosh steal the inbounds pass only to have his game-winning layup attempt roll off the rim as time ran out.
