The Hornets Want James Posey

The James Posey love in continues and the Hornets are the latest team hoping to take a run at the swingman, who is NBA Championship fresh. 

The Hornets are targeting Boston Celtics free agent James Posey to solve their needs at shooting guard, but whether Hornets General Manager Jeff Bower can pull off a deal is uncertain. Free agents can begin signing contracts Wednesday, and Posey is one of the most sought after on the market. Posey, who can play shooting guard and small forward, appears to be one of the Hornets’ No.1 targets. However, it likely would take a full mid-level exception offer of $5.8 million for him to consider coming to New Orleans.
