Pollard would be gone as well.. yeah i figured that too but maybe the reason why ainge is doing this because posey wants more money ... So if posey declines magette could be the answer if we can sign both it would be hard to get a decent backup for perk. plus we already have backup for ray allen its JR giddens he maybe young but we will definitely see him regularly this coming season .. Ainge is just making sure we dont lose a great backup for pierce.

Even if Maggette doesn't wanna sign for the MLE...there's no problem in trying.

Meggette is worth more than the MLE and he knows that.

What the hell would the C's do with Magette? I'm sure he doesn't want to go somewhere where he would have to come off the bench.

Default Re: Celtics make offers to James Posey and Corey Maggette

This makes no sense to me at all.

I mean Maggette is a nice guy and all, but this would require him to take BOTH a pay cut - AND - a reduced role on the court, and I would have been surprised to see him sign somewhere and agreeing to just one of those, so I find it very hard that he is down for BOTH.

Very strange, but if it does happen I guess it would make for a good story line when we meet the Celtics in Teh Finals next year

Put Back Dunk has an OK reputation so far
Default Re: Celtics make offers to James Posey and Corey Maggette

The more I think about this I'm starting to see that it's Danny putting some pressure on Posey. Posey was great for us this past year, but he's not the type of player that's going to keep the world champs waiting around to see what he's going to do while he talks with other teams.

Posey and his agent said Boston was his first choice but they'd talk to other teams. Danny is basically saying the same thing about Posey by offering a deal to Maggette. There's zero chance the C's end up with both, and I honestly doubt Maggette would sign for the MLE anyway, so in the end I think we get Posey back.
