Celtics First Focus is Posey

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.

  1. Bring back Posey. Bring back Posey!! I would love to see our man back in a Celtics uni for next season. In fact, with the D that he played on Kobe in the finals, can we afford not to bring him back?

    I don’t think so.

  2. WPD – I totally agree again. Posey was so valuable in the playoffs. We definitely dont win the NBA Finals without him, and I’m not sure we get there at all…
