Free agents hunt:
The Cavaliers are in the hunt for James Posey of the Boston Celtics according to many sources around the league. Posey remains the most attractive unrestricted free agent on the market. He is a strong defender and a descent 3-point shooter.

He is believed to be seeking the mid-level exception, which will be $5.585 million for the upcoming season. The Lakers, Celtics, New Orleans, Houston and the Washington are believed to be after him as well.

Lebron James innocent comments, that New York is his favorite city is not making Danny Ferry’s job any easier. These comments, “aren’t boosting the morale nor the attractiveness of his current team. Why would Elton Brand or Baron Davis (both already off the market) agree to a sign-and-trade to Cleveland while reading about James goin’ Gotham?” Larry Phillips of Mansfield News Journal said.
