BOSTON (AP) -James Posey and the Celtics have agreed to terms of a deal that will bring the former Miami Heat forward to Boston.
``He was a free agent,'' team spokesman Jeff Twiss said Sunday. ``He was available to be signed and he decided to sign with us.''
Twiss did not disclose details of the agreement with the 30-year-old, who also played for the Memphis Grizzlies.
The 6-foot-8 Posey has a reputation as a strong defender. He alternated with Antoine Walker as the sixth man when the Heat won the NBA title in 2006.
Posey has averaged 8.2 points and 5.6 rebounds since entering the NBA with Memphis out of Xavier in 2003.
