Word out of Boston is that James Posey has gobbled up the C’s mid-level and will be the presumptive 6th man for two years. A good defensive player and reasonable 3-point threat, Posey is exactly the sort of player Danny Ainge needs to be pulling in for this 2-year finals window.
I’d still like to see a veteran point guard (Eddie House may be earmarked for the point, but I’ve always thought of him more as a shooter) and a little more beef up front. Counting on Scot Pollards health has been a risky proposition in the past, Big Baby is young and Kendrick Perkins hasn’t proven himself.
From here on out, Ainge is going to have to make the title run his main selling point, ’cause it looks like Posey’s got most of their available cash.
Still, this is a step in the right direction and some insurance against Pierce or Allen getting hurt.
