Sounds like there is mutual respect on both sides. I would, once again, LOVE to have James Posey on this Lakers squad…

Hoopsworld: Sources close to the situation contend James Posey would love to be a Laker and that the Lakers are willing to go the full exception to land him.

  • LN1

    REALLY?????

    if he pulls a garnett and just says….JUST KIDDING, and goes to boston, im gonna start an old fashioned California wildfire over there in boston.

    off-season trade rumors gives me gray hair =(

  • thevoiceofreason

    This is great news. I’ve always hated Posey but hes one of those guys you need on your team. He hustles on defense and hes a great spot up shooter.

    Now if we can get rid of Rad, Mihm, and Crawford for Artest that would be great.

  • lakerschamps08

    thats good..but does that mean we say bye bye to sasha???

  • http://ld2k.com LD2k

    Read the article. Sounds like he is def. out of Boston – especially when they mentioned he was their “top priority” and are looking elsewhere for players (Mags).

  • http://letsgolakers.com Mr.81

    I really doubt he’d come, unless he wants to make a serious rivalry.

  • thevoiceofreason

    Farmar

    Posey

    would be our bench

    According to Kyler:

    The Celtics are denying that they made an offer to Corey Maggette, but they are not denying contact with Maggette, who has already confirmed discussions with the Celtics. Why are the C’s distancing themselves from Maggette? It did not sit well with James Posey, who was labeled the Celtics top off-season priority. The Celtics did make an offer to Posey that was far less than the full boat median exception he has been offered from other teams, leaving Posey feeling unwanted.

  • nyla

    Get him Mitch!

  • LN1

    yeah i think this is pretty much a strategic move for him personally if boston is looking to get a bigger profile star like mags. if he comes to LA, he’s pretty much set to be the new “big shot rob”

  • KOBEISKING

    damn i really hope james posey come to the lakers

  • KOBEISKING

    Posey we’ll make you feel wanted buddy. Finish your career as a laker man =)

  • purple’n’gold

    i hope he is willing to join the lakers, this would give us another shooter,defender in case sasha leaves.

  • DCLAKER

    Welp,I guess I have to surrender my Pietrus request(for now)and say ……IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME SOMEBODY SPOKE UP AND SAID “I WANT TO BE A LAKER”!

    Posey WILL be a Laker Tuesday,DO IT MITCH!!!

  • True Lakers Fan

    Posey will b niceeeeeee

  • Geloman

    then the Celts get mags. Makes them even more dangerous.

  • Daryl Imhoff

    He is athletic and has an edge to him. He is not afraid to give a hard foul when necessary. That is why fans for other teams do not like him.
    If he is wearing purple and gold he will soon be a fan favorite.

    If this is true it’s AMAZING news. I woudl much rather have Posey than Artest. Posey fits in perfectly with what we need. Sign him to the full MLE for 3 years (he’s to old to give 5 years). Then I’d make the starting lineup either Fish, Kobe, Posey, Gasol, Bynum OR…….. Fish, Kobe, Posey, Odom, Gasol. Either way…. we need Posey in the starting 5 to spread the floor.

  • kPoAbUe

    I HATE POSEY BUT IF HE WANTS TO BE A LAKER I LIKE HIM!

  • magicbalala245

    Rockets will make an effort to acquire Posey
    http://www.hoopsworld.com/Story.asp?story_id=9352

  • John

    I would love Posey to be a Laker, but no way this guy is worth the full MLE. You would be better off to go after Maggette, and don’t tell me he won’t come here for the full MLE if he is considering the Spurs and Magic..all they can afford is the full MLE. What do you think????

  • hows this

    WTF! Stop asking questions in the headlines. Who else is tired of seeing:

    BREAKING NEWS: POSEY SIGNS WITH LAKERS??? MAYBE?!?!?

    or

    BREAKING NEWS: KOBE GOES TO DISNEYLAND AND LAKERS ARE ABOUT TO SIGN A UNDRAFTED GUARD?!?!!?????

    And please please please put a cap on original articles. Honestly, they just take up space and it’s nothing beyond a biased commentary that offers little insight. Stick to re-posting articles around the web.

    Something tells me that Sasha or Turiaf or we might be trading Radman or someone else *cough* Mihm *cough* to a team that has extra money like might be getting, I’m just being funny and don’t take this seriously at all but how about this: http://games.espn.go.com/nba/features/traderesult?players=3251~549~1016~1013&teams=11~11~11~13&te=&cash=13:11 ! But anyways, I’m sure Mitch and Jerry (Buss) know what they’re doing and will be able to handle all of the budget expenses that come in our way, so let’s just wait and see what they’ll do about this situation…(to be continued)

    Where is “breaking news.” And also, if the answer is within the article then we’re doing our job.

    Don’t forget we want you to discuss this. Full MLE for a bench player?

  • DCLAKER

    Now the Pistons want “MY FAVORITE FREE AGENT:MICKAEL PIETRUS” and I’m prayin’ they DON’T ’cause The P and P express MUST HAPPEN,Mitch! It will solidify YOU as “THE ALMIGHTY GM OF ALL TIME”(way to milk it)and The Lakers as “THE GREATEST TEAM OF THE MILLENIUM,PERIOD”,but 1st things 1st…..GETPOSEY!!!

  • lakersforlife77

    Thta’s pretty damn awesome

  • gugy

    Posey and Artest would be fantastic for the Lakers next season. Can you do it Mitch my bitch?

  • Ko8e_f@n

    [Comment ID #43579 Will Be Quoted Here]

    hahaha… you wish! sac wouldn’t be dumb enough to do such a trade!

    will probably be a good addition, but i still rather have maggette or artest if we’re spending the entire MLE.

  • Laker Power

    [Comment ID #43579 Will Be Quoted Here]

    LOL!!!! Luke and Rad for Artest?!? Stop Dreaming!!!

    Why are a lot of people on here NOT realistic and have such stupid ideas about things? You really think they would give up Artest to the same division for players like that!?!

    C`mon man, by the way I dont sense any sarcasm in your post which is why this comment upsets me

  • http://thelakersnation.com kb24 4life

    we can spend the MLE after resigning sashaa rightt??

    i mean resign sasha for whateverr… and thenn use the MLE for anotherr player…hopefully posey.. ¿?

  • lakerschamps08

    umm yea thats wat i wanna say LD2K if we giving FULL MLE than i rather have maggette than posey… u just dont know with posey… but if cant get anybody then yea gotta get posey

  • daboss1848

    Posey is posturing to make Celtics up their offer.

    We’ll know it when we see it!

    4life, yes

  • Smush Walton

    Our first priority should be to get rid of Smush Walton and Vlad Moronovich. Mitch, do whatever it takes to get rid of these worthless pieces of dung.

  • http://lakers.com get_posey

    TRADE LUKE WALTON FOR POSEY!!!!!!!!!!!!DO IT MITCH

  • gugy

    [Comment ID #43601 Will Be Quoted Here]

    True words my friend.
    I believe just dumping those two idiots and Minh would be a HUGE improvement on itself to the roster.

  • Smush Walton

    There is no way the Kings will give us Artest for Smush Walton and Moronovich. No one would be that stupid.

    Any deal would in all likelyhood require Lamar. Based on his “performance” in the finals it may be time to make this deal.

  • e

    EXCELLENT!!!

  • ricky

    i say we just try and keep things modest and be realistic about improving our roster. no more insane ideas of getting both artest and posey, or posey and maggette. thats just too much.

    i say the best thing to do is re-sign sasha and ronny, then try and go after 1 of the 3, either maggette, artest, or posey.

    my choice would be

    1. maggette: right across the locker room and sounds sensible
    2. artest: i know artest should be #1 but whats the possibility the kings send him our way and without odom in the deal, i would rather keep LO
    3. posey: unless he decides to stay or go with another team

  • http://www.thelakersnation.com Fred A.

    THIS IS A MASTER PIECE!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  • ricky

    oh yeah, and also mickael pietrus would be a fantastic pick up too if we try to pursue him.

    so my top 4 would be artest, maggette, posey, or pietrus. anyone would do for me and would greatly improve the team, as long as we get one of them, them im cool.

  • ab17

    he’d tottally come to the lakers if he realizes how good they were this yr and even though boston won the title,that next yr its gonna be whole diffrent story when bynum comes back. so if i was him, iwould be saying to myself “wow.the lakers were close to beating us in the finals this yr and they didnt even have bynum…ah what the heck next destination..L.A. for that third ring baby”-James Posey haha

  • http://89.com MambaKB24

    [Comment ID #43540 Will Be Quoted Here]

    yes, it does
    were way over the cap and because Bynum’s upcoming extention, ther is literally no money left to spend
    oh ya, and i guess it would also mean that the Jazz will get their wish and land Ronny
    most likeley, sasha would go wherever the money is
    i meen, you cant really blame him, but if you watch the exit interviews he constantly says, “im going to go to whatever team wants me most”
    which basicly translates to the team with the biggest check
    you would have to look at it like trading up sasha and ronny for posey
    now, do i think its worth it?
    no, our rosters filled with small forwards
    in fact we pay vlad and luke about 11mil combined a year
    i dont know where posey would fit in ur lineup anyways
    i like him in endofgame situations
    are you gonna sit Lamar?
    what about pau?
    bynum perrhaps?
    or maybe play KB at the point and bench fish?
    oh, and not to mention the fact that hes much older than sasha and ronny

    everyone really needs to stop fantisizing trade and sign scenerios
    we all did it last year, and the trade finally came when we least expected it

    just wait, your anxiety wont solve anything

    and before anything, you really gotta take care of problems within the team

    if theres any money left to pass out, than manegment will weigh their options

    until then, WAIT

  • yellowpurplefever

    This better be real. if its true, bye bye Sash, Artest who? Man I never thought he would go West. What a way to end the week Awesome!! I def. sign him our MLE x 5 years than Sash. The guy is proving winner x 2 and he killed us in the Finals. And we get to keep Lamar for rebounds and jump start the offense but no threes or layups pls Lamar. Mitch this is the missing piece for the dynasty

  • Daryl Imhoff

    There is a retired Laker that reminds me of Posey, and ironically he too came to the Lakers from the Celtics. Rick Fox. Their games are similar. Fox was the intense guy off the bench who was not afraid to mix it up. He was also a plus on offense. Posey would fit in as a Laker. No more need be said. If the Celtics are going to under value this guy, the Lakers need to take advantage and sign him. Then if Sasha goes elsewhere it won’t hurt as much.

  • hows this

    i want to apologize for my earlier comments LD2K. you guys run a fantastic site that i visit at least 20 times a day. keep it up! and no…the Lakers shouldn’t spend the entire MLE on posey

  • ab4sure

    [Comment ID #43626 Will Be Quoted Here]

    We all know how Shaq used to bring in players. We also know how PP brought in players.. PJ Brown, also convincing KG to come over. Please tell me who Kobe has brought to the lakers?

    bcuz what we had wasnt enough for us to win the championship

  • Parich

    As of right now, Posey is a player that fits in better with the Celtics than the Lakers because of his style. You see, sometimes teams count on players to have the greatest effects on them, so they think that going out to get a proven veteran will solve the problem. Wrong. Each team must learn how to use each player according to his styles to give the best results to the team. You can’t just sign a player that was good for another team and expect him to be good for your fav team. Same with Posey. Just Cuz he looks great with the Celts, doesn’t mean he’s gonna be good with the Lakers. The Lakers to have to adjust to take advantage of his skills. Figure out the best way to use his strengths.

    I personally don’t think that a player like Posey will have the most effects on the Laker due to Phil Jackson’s style. PJ doesn’t emphasize defense much and the triangle is weird, so every time the Lakers get a player and think he’s gonna be good, that doesn’t turn out to be true because they don’t adjust to the players. Instead of adjustin to them, LA is a team that waits for players to adjust to it. Bad =(.

  • lskerfan567

    you got a point, but why would we need posey h=the lakers need to go get a Tayshaun Prince os Artest if we want to make any kind of improvements

  • Lorenzo

    Never trust Hoopsworld.

  • J.critt=star

    Hey you guys with all this talk surrounding the lakers and free agency, how about we go after Jannero pargo, hes a solid guy(8 ppg, off the bench) only 27, and would really help the lakers at the 1 and 2 guards. Cuz we all know fisher’s not gonna play forever!

  • lskerfan567

    didnt we draft pargo, did we trade him?

  • e

    as for now, we have more than enough guards..fisher, farmar, kobe, (hopefully) sasha, joe crawford, and perhaps that other kempt guy..if we get posey, he can not only play sg, but also sf..we are honestly solid in our pg an sg position..we need work on sf..radman sucks, luke sucks, trevor still isnt ready, and im not too sure lamar can play sf..i say posey would be a great pick up

  • garybayton

    It would be great if Posey signed with the Lakers. We would have him for 5 years and he could guard Pierce. The person we don’t want is Maggette who isn’t that good anyway and isn’t much better than Trevor Ariza.

  • daboss1849

    [Comment ID #43645 Will Be Quoted Here]

    What great defense, 3 point shot, and hustle plays don’t fit the triangle? C’mon use your head it’s that lump 3 feet above your a.s.s!!!!

  • franz paolo

    James Posey will be a great addition to the lakers, but i really think that Ron Artest will be the perfect fit. Artest can score and defend,he can be in the starting line-up. I love L.O. but he’s time is up. It’s time to bring the glory back here in L.A..

  • mo shahshahan

    Looks like another Tim Thomas in the making

  • sclakerfan

    It would be great to get Posey, but do you think that they would still sign Sasha then? If they sign Sasah, that would put the Lakers about $15 million over the salary cap, and I’m not sure Buss wants to do that.

  • J.critt=star

    yeah we signed pargo but we let him go, he isn’t getting much attention so if sasha walks away or even if he stays we should still go after him what do you guys think?

    [Comment ID #43768 Will Be Quoted Here]

    several ppl thought it was too much to give including myself, you would have to give the best part of the team not to mention the cap space would have been gone and limiting other acquisitions.

    That was not my point. Save your bandwagon act, it holds no water. The point is you were begging for something (kg) you now can’t even look at. One thing i will give you credit for it seems like your taking the loss alot harder than kobe has. I think kobe is just thankful he has a future and that the Lakers didn’t ship his azz out to chitown and would never live up to #23.

  • laker-nate

  • LakersFirst

    [Comment ID #43766 Will Be Quoted Here]

    What the f*ck is this supposed to mean???? I guess you’re trying to have the last word, as you try to every time.

    My point was, of course most Lakers fans wanted KG on the team last year, he would’ve helped the Lakers this season, hence why we were supporting him last year. However, because he didn’t end up a Laker, there is no reason to support him (i.e. no reason to cheer for him). What about this didn’t you like or understand? It’s the same with your precious Andrew Bynum, if he for some reason ends up on another team in the future, then Laker fans shouldn’t support him (I definitely wouldn’t support him if he was on another team, and I wouldn’t support Kobe either if we were on another team). I support the Laker team, and whoever is on the Laker team.

    I also don’t understand your comment about not watching future NBA games? It made no sense. Why would I want to watch the Lakers play themselves? The entire point of competition is to play other teams, and as a fan you support the team that you like.

  • Ko8e_f@n

    [Comment ID #43757 Will Be Quoted Here]

    I don’t think MLE for Posey is ‘affordable’. Considering that Maggette or Artest *hypothetically* would sign for the same amount. :P

  • Daryl Imhoff

    The Celtics have just offered Maggette the full MLE. How does this move make Poses feel? I hope it makes him feel that he wants to get back to the Finals with the Lakers to show the Celtics they just made a BIG mistake! How much the Lakers pay him is up to the Front Office of the Lakers. Just get him, not only does he bring defense and timely scoring but he does the intangibles at just the right time. He is a winner! Some thing Maggette has yet to prove.

  • lskerfan567

    maggette aint gonna sign with the celts hes gonna go to the warriors for more money

  • joseph

    Great comeback. The hater card. I guess your not better than that.

    Lakerfirst, Look at your logic.
    “Of course we can’t stand the sight of KG, HE’S NOT A LAKER”. Logic says you can’t stand the sight of all non lakers. Use logic. Again I never used the word SUPPORT did I??? So if you want to butt in a conversation at least be accurate with what i said. Please tell me where i said the word support. Twisting again. Watching and supporting are not synonyms. Get a dictionary.

    Without Pierce and Allen carrying KG, he’d still have zero rings. There may have been a time when KG carried the world on his shoulders, but that’s ancient history. He had one or maybe 2 ok games in the finals. One game, he couldn’t hit one open 10 footer. So what that he has a ring now. He didn’t earn it. Even his buddy Mark Madsen has more rings that KG does!

    lskerfan567, don’t be too harsh on joseph. “and then be massacre by 39 points” How can someone who talks like that meet a woman? We should feel sorry for him. We’ll probably see him on To Catch a Predator!

    Pretty much all that needs to be said

  • DCLAKER

    Artest wants BIG MONEY,almost Arenas loot(60-80 mill.,YEAH that much).

    We need to go after CHEAPER FA’s and Pietrus and or Posey(WE NEED BOTH) could fix our defensive problems immediately.

    …also Azubuike,Maggette,Tayshaun Prince,Josh Smith(if he comes to LA he WON’T LEAVE,unlike Philly).

    ab4sure, ur pathetic…most ppl log to this site 2 see our lakers news and rumors, w/e…all u do is come here 2 run ur mouth dude…grow up man…it dont make u hard 2 act bad on chat forums

    Here is what I’ve learned from various webb sites. It all hinges on Brand. If he signs with the Clippers then the Warriors will pursue Maggette and Maggette wants more than the mid level exception if he can get it. If Maggette gets more than the MLE, and I mean $10 million, then those teams with only the mid level exception will be willing to offer that exception to guys like Posey. Brand is the lead domino once he falls everyone else will follow. However, if the Lakers were willing to aggressively pursue Posey now with a MLE for 5 years they mignt be able to get him to commit. Realistically, don’t expect too much to happen until Brand if off the market.
