ESPN.com's Jeff Goodman reports that former Boston Celtics small forward and two-time NBA champion James Posey is a candidate to sign with the organization as a member of Brad Stevens' coaching staff.

Goodman says that there is interest in Posey because Stevens is likely to hire an ex-player. That would probably be a very good idea to help his transition from college to the pros; Stevens will likely have some hurdles to overcome considering his age and lack of experience in the NBA. Alongside the well-respected veteran coach Ron Adams, Posey could provide the staff with a "player-coach," much like Tyronn Lue was the past few years.

Posey was a key member of the 2008 NBA Champion Boston Celtics, bringing grit, hustle, and attitude off the bench. He only averaged 7.4 points and 4.4 rebounds per game but his impact was much greater. Posey was a 'glue guy' and was an important piece of the chemistry-building the team went through early in the season. Even though Posey lacks experience as a coach, he got his start as an assistant coach with the Cleveland Cavaliers in this year's Las Vegas summer league.
