posey was asking for more money.. The reason why ainge did this probably because he figured that if james posey does want more money maybe magette agrees ... dont you just love danny ainge

No.
The way I see it, there's about a 4% chance Magette lands with the Celtics. There's just no way a player of his caliber is going to want to have a bench role on any team.

you just dont want this to happen because you think that you guys have another shot to win the title since its an odd year ... Why did you think magette opted out?

plus magette has been playing the 6th man role for clippers before right?

Maggette never in his life was a defensive player for even a few seconds.

He would definitely improve scoring, but would not fit in to Boston's 3 point shooting style and tough defense.

To get a bigger contract obviously.
Not as of late. He started 65 of the 70 games he played last season.

Someone who realizes this is probably his last chance at a huge long-term contract... like Maggette.

This is why I've never rooted for Boston teams. Boston fans have heads bigger than their waistlines, and that's saying something.

just voicing out my opinion and am just happy that we can possibly have both... i bet if you have this opportunity you would just be as happy. and those who hate you are either jealous or wish they had the same opportunity..

Offensively he'd be better than Odom yes, because Odom couldn't shoot jumpers at all while maggette is slightly mediocre at it instead of completely.

But honestly maggette is not worth more than Odom. Odom does exceptionally well in every category.

If I were to sign maggette, it would be as a 6th man and he would do such an excellent job there especially if some teams are playing good D. Maggette can break through defenses and get to the free throw line a lot.
