D*mn, I've been running to so many boards I thought I had posted this already here. Signing Posey doesn't mean they've given up on Julian. I don't see a reason Julian and Posey can't play together. Posey will either challenge Mo for the starting spot or come off the bench and play with Julian. This fills a hole for the Hornets but now they could still use another point guard and another big man. They may re-sign Pargo and then maybe get a big for the vet minimum.

Sometimes their lineups could look like this...

PG - Paul
SG - Pargo
SF - Wright
PF - Posey
C -Chandler

OR

C - Chandler
PF - West/Armstrong
SF - Posey
SG - J.Wright
PG - Paul

And Peja will be in there somewhere.

Posey should be introduced as a Hornet sometime this week.

Quote:
Look for James Posey to be formally introduced as a member of the New Orleans Hornets by the middle of next week. But don't look for me to join the chorus of concern that the Hornets overextended themselves to sign the 31-year-old to a four-year deal worth about $25 million. I love the move.

I can't deny that I was not-so-secretly expecting owner George Shinn to make his checkbook hard to find after the Hornets re-signed Paul to a max contract extension earlier this month. But showing an immediate willingness to spend some more to get Posey as the lead acquisition to address their leadership and depth shortcomings suggests that Shinn isn't satisfied with one breakthrough season.

The Hornets were forever known as nonspenders. Since Paul came into their lives with the fourth overall pick in 2005, Shinn has been spending like he has some ambition, enabling general manager Jeff Bower to gradually assemble the West's new darlings. Isn't this Shinn better than his predecessor?

Scott likes options N.O. has with Posey

James Posey signed a four-year, $25 million contract during free agency to join the Hornets, but that doesn't mean he'll enter training camp ahead of incumbent Morris Peterson at shooting guard.

However, that could change during the course of the season, according to Coach Byron Scott. Posey, a key contributor to the Boston Celtics' first NBA title in 22 years last season and to the Miami Heat's championship run in 2006, formally was introduced by the franchise Wednesday.

Posey, a 6-foot-8 swingman, gives Scott and the Hornets plenty of options with his versatility.


"I just think James can play three positions (shooting guard, small forward and power forward)," Scott said. "Offensively, he just doesn't make mistakes. He takes great shots and does all the things he can do, and he doesn't try to go overboard. But that's what you get when you have a veteran guy.

"Right now, we're looking at him as our sixth man, probably our first guy off the bench. We're fortunate and very blessed to have him. You look at his track record, he's won everywhere he's been. I think we are a better basketball team."
