There is no doubt that James Posey was a difference maker off the bench for the Boston Celtics in the Finals. Â Now he wants to be paid that way and the Celtics really want him back. Â It’s safe to say that Posey can go right ahead and pre-order those extra green and white mouth pieces anytime now.
For the NBA champion Celtics, free agency begins today with James Posey as the primary focus. Most other personnel matters will be handled after Posey’s situation is settled. One move was made last night when the franchise failed to make Tony Allen a qualifying offer, thus making the guard an unrestricted free agent, according to his agent, Mike Higgins. The arrival of draft picks J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker definitely hurt Allen’s chances to return to Boston.Â
