It is July 1, and NBA Free Agency has begun. G/F James Posey declared himself a free agent, opting out of his one-year, $3.2 mlllion option for next year.
Posey could probably demand $5-7 million in a three-year deal on the open market. I’m sure the Celtics would match that in a heart beat. He is definitely needed if the Celtics want to repeat.
Players like Posey, who bring shutdown defense off the bench, are unbelievably valuable. If the Lakers have him and the Celtics don’t in the NBA Finals, L.A. would’ve won the series. He’s that valuable.
