Posey to the Hornets, a difference maker

by james on July 19th, 2008

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

The Hornets had the Spurs in their hand. It was all but over.

It was described this way.

It’s the team of the decade against the team of the future.

It’s the king of the hill vs. the new kid on the block.

Its last year’s NBA title winners squaring off with this year’s Southwest Division title winners.


Turns out the old king of the hill had enough in them to pull out the series and send the Hornets home. This got them thinking. Maybe we need more.

Now they have more. The New Orleans Hornets signed the most significant free agent left in Sam Posey.

The deal is worth 25 million for 4 years.

Boston wanted to keep him.

Because of future luxury-tax concerns, Boston was apparently reluctant to offer Posey, 31, more than a two- or three-year deal starting at the league’s midlevel exception (just under $5.6 million) in spite of Posey’s considerable contributions to the Celtics’ first championship since 1986.


Chris Paul needed more weapons and Sam Posey will bring his timely 3 point shooting. More than that, Sam can guard a lot of different style players.

This is a great signing for New Orleans.

As always, any NBA Basketball related comments are welcome.
