Posey to make his decision soon
 
I hope he goes to LAL, they could use a guy like him. Unfortunately, Toronto is out of the picture here. It'll be interesting to see where Posey goes. :reporter:

The most coveted of the Boston Celtics' free agents, a two-time NBA champion who played a major reserve role this past season, is drawing interest from the Cavaliers, Washington, New Orleans, Detroit, and the Lakers, but no one seems willing to offer the full mid-level exception ($5.5 million).

When asked about Posey and [free agent Eddie] House, agent Mark Bartelstein said in a text message: ‘‘Nothing new.'' Bartelstein, however, did say he hoped to get Posey signed in ‘‘the next day or so'' and said the Celtics are still in the mix. Bartelstein indicated the same sentiment to the Cleveland Plain Dealer Wednesday evening. Mary Schmitt Boyer, who wrote in Wednesday's editions that the Cavs had turned their focus to the local product, followed up with a blog entry this evening in which she wrote:

Posey, 31, is believed to be seeking the mid-level exception, which will be $5.585 million for the upcoming season. In addition to the Cavs, his suitors are believed to include the Celtics, Lakers, New Orleans, Washington and Houston — at least. Posey lives in Texas in the off-season. The San Antonio Spurs, who had been interested in Maggette, are another possibility.

Vujacic? :(

IMO the Lakers will be better with Posey rather than with Vujacic

To sign Turiaf they'll have to match the 4 year/17million dollar offer sheet he signed today from the Warriors.Which would put them over the cap.I think they'll end up over the cap either way.It's not like they can't afford it.

No way Turiaf's coming back. Vujacic maybe, but not Turiaf. No way LAL will match that ludicrous offer for him.

Turiaf is a biggger loss than people seem to think.
He was an energy guy, a reall glue guy for that team.

jumplvlan23 07-11-2008 01:30 AM

But if it means adding Posey, the LAKERS MUST MAKE THIS DEAL. He is the perfect player, perfect fit for this team's needs.

Today may be the day he makes his decision. He has said in an interview yesterday that he will make his decision in "the next day or so" so we'll have to see what happens here.

I don't think Posey will fit well in New Orleans. I hope he comes to TO. We could really use a guy like him.

Oh and James: You can take as long as you want with your decision....just letting you know ;)
