Herald Celtics make offer to James PoseyFL's Take: I am thinking that the sticking point is the length of the contract. My guess is that Posey wants 4 or more years and Danny is offering 3. Hopefully they can come to an agreement because Posey is very valuable to this team in so many ways and I don't want to see him on the Lakers, Pistons, Cavs, Nets or Hornets. Not only would losing him hurt the Celtics but it would also help most of their top rivals. A new deal on Doc-ketFL's Take: Doc has earned an extension but whether he wants to continue coaching, that is the question. The bigger concern is whether the Celtics can sign his assistants. Thibodeau and Ray are crucial in my opinion. Davis set to join ClippersGlobe Celtics extend offer to MaggetteFL's Take: Maggette is a surprise. He never seemed like the sacrifice for the good of the team ubuntu type of player. He also doesn't seem like the defensive stopper that Posey has been. I don't know if it is Maggette OR Posey of if they are trying to get Maggette AND Posey. It would seem that since Magette was making 7 million last season and was looking at more than that, they don't have anything to offer other than a chance for a ring unless there is a sign and trade somewhere. I think he is a long shot at this point. Rookies are welcomed additionsWalker to have surgery FL's Take: We can only hope that Walker's story turns out as good as Leon Powe's has.

I can see him getting an offer from some team. He still has a lot of potential. It is also possible the Celtics bring him back on a make good contract. Worcester Telegram Green gambleFL's Take: Danny can afford to take a gamble with this draft and if it pays off, Danny will look like a genius. Patriot Ledger Celts create buzz with 3 promising picksEnterprise Surgery not a concern for draft pick Bill WalkerOffsides Chris Andersen visits BostonFL's Take: I am all for bringing in Anderson as the back up Center/Power forward. Hopefully he will be willing to sign with the Celtics for the veteran's mimimum for a chance at a ring. Sports Spectrum Insider Sending Celtics to the Olympics is not the answerFox Sports All time team, Boston CelticsConcord Monitor Celts flash potential before campTimes Picayune Hornets express interest in PoseyFL's Take: If Posey has to go to someone else, I would rather the Hornets as they haven't been one of our direct rivals. Somehow, Posey hugging Chris Paul doesn't seem near as offensive as him hugging Posey.
