Too bad, I am a big fan. Now he makes the Hornets that much better.

Signed a 4 year, $25 mil contract.

now the hornets dont have to start mo peterson. a starting lineup of paul, posey, peja, west, and chandler is crazy good

what are u talking about. they went to the second round and almost beat the spurs. Plus they got players that have been there before and won it (posey, peja was close) their players are all at the perfect age in their primes (peja, posey, chandler, and west) and Paul is the third best player in the league. They are the favorites for sure!

I think Posey is exactly what they needed to take them to the top. To me, they seemed to lack that one energy player. They thought it'd be Bonzi... turns out he was too inconsistent to be that guy. And now they have Posey, who'll smother you defensively and continue to play after the whistle. Great pickup by the Hornets.

posey is a good bench player. he has a decent mid range and a 3 point jump shot. but he's mostly good for defense because of his long arms.

4 years is quite a long contract for a 31 year old

That said, yes, will make them immediately better
