NBA Trade Rumors: Pacers' James Posey No Longer An Option For Celtics

Indiana Pacers' forward James Posey will not have his contract bought out by the team, according to a tweet from Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix.

Pacers will not buyout James Posey, source says. Scratch him off the list of potential free agent pickups for contenders.

 

As a result, Posey is no longer an option for the Boston Celtics, who are looking to add another body to backup Paul Pierce. Posey is averaging 5.1 points and 38.8 rebounds in 42 games for Indiana.

Posey played for the Celtics during their NBA championship season in 2007-08. He averaged 7.4 points and 4.4 rebounds in 74 games that season and was an invaluable asset off the bench for Boston.

In his 13-year career, Posey has averaged 8.6 points and 4.7 rebounds while shooting 41%.
