LAS VEGAS -- The reigning NBA champions are about to lose their glue guy.

NBA front-office sources told ESPN.com on Wednesday that James Posey has agreed to a four-year deal with the New Orleans Hornets worth an estimated $25 million.

Because of luxury-tax concerns, Boston was reluctant to offer Posey, 31, more than a two-year deal in spite of his considerable contributions to the Celtics' first championship since 1986.

This is a great pickup for NO.

He's an immediate upgrade over Mo Peterson.

This helps the sting that was left by them selling off their 1st round pick, which could/should have been CDR.

He gives them experience, defense, and he does alot of the little things.

Great move by the Hornets.

Great pickup. I think he should come off the bench for Mo Pete though so Hornets' second unit will be even better.
