Free agent James Posey, via agent Mark Bartelstein, continued to talk to other NBA suitors in the wake of what he considers an unacceptable offer from his former team - one that falls short of the $5.8 million mid-level exception as well as his desire for a 4- to 5-year deal.
A Celtics source also continued to insist yesterday that the team has not made a formal offer to free agent Corey Maggette, and that the former Clipper is simply aware that the team has a $5.8 million mid-level exception available - the same amount the team has been unwilling to offer Posey.
But as Maggette continued to consider offers yesterday, with the Warriors reportedly getting into the act, a number of teams had something to offer that the Celtics won’t - a starting job.
Though the Spurs had the same salary slot available, San Antonio is also interested in the high-scoring, volume-oriented Maggette as a starter.
