Default Celtics make offers to James Posey and Corey Maggette

Quote:
The Celtics have made contract offers to two forwards: Their own free agent, James Posey, and Clippers free agent Corey Maggette, sources told the Boston Globe. The most the Celtics could offer is the mid-level exception (about $5.8 million), and it's doubtful that they could sign both players. The terms of the offers were not disclosed.

Posey averaged 7.4 points and 4.4 rebounds in 2007-08 and was a NBA Sixth Man of the Year candidate in his first season with Boston. The two-time NBA champion was a strong leader for the Celtics and opted out of the second year of a two-year deal on Monday to become an unrestricted free agent. Maggette averaged 22.1 points and 5.6 rebounds last season for the Clippers and played for Celtics coach Doc Rivers in Orlando during the 1999-2000 season.
Boston Globe

WTF is Ainge doing?

For starters Maggette (most likely) wouldn't sign for the full MLE. Plus, even if the C's were offering that how can they make a good offer to Posey at the same time? Are they able to rescind the offer to Maggette if Posey signs? If so, I understand the 'plan B' aspect of the move, but if not I'm completely lost. Maggette doesn't exactly seem like an Ubuntu type of player.

This makes no sense to me.

Since Corey is best friends with Kobe, why would he got to Boston if LA can offer the same MLE offer?

Maggette would make all kind of improvements on D with Thibodeau/KG working with him and he would certainly be able to provide scoring off the bench 22PPG, something the Celtics did not have on a consistent basis last year.If we can somehow sign both..omg id cream my pants.But if we can sign Maggette,I wont be as sad if Posey leaves.

Celtics line-up with Maggette (a long shot)

PG Rondo
SG Allen (Ray)
SG Pierce
PF Maggette
C Kevin Garnett

Bench: House, Perkins, Big Baby

That sounds nice.

So this would mean Cassell moves on, House moves to second PG and Maggette and Posey would be back up SG and SF.

Why doesn't Boston address their backup center problem first now that PJ Brown might retire...again

Scott Polard is not the answer.

Maggette is WAY too small to play power forward.

LA does have Bynum coming back next year and a healthy Ariza.
LA are also a lot younger, so they will contend for years to come.

What are you smoking?..he would be our 6th man which lets Pierce and Ray get more rest for the play-offs.

If we can sign Posey or Corey..either one will make me happy.
