The Nets are working an offer to land the small forward James Posey. His agent was hoping for an offer last night but said it might go into the weekend before Posey makes his choice.
“We’ve been talking and talking for a while,” Posey’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, confirmed yesterday. “And while it’s hard to get into specifics, yes, the Nets are in the running. I would think there will be a decision soon.”
Posey is also considering offers from the Cavaliers and the Celtics. The Nets are at
a financial disadvantage and have the biannual exception, $1.8 million, unless they can work a sign-and-trade with the Heat. While Boston has $3.6 million of its mid-level exception remaining while the Cavaliers has $5.3 million.
