December 19, 2011 Updates

A source close to James Posey said the Knicks have been in contact with the forward as recently as Monday. The source said Posey has been in talks with a number of teams and, as of Monday night, no deal had been struck. According to a report Monday from the Boston Globe, the Celtics are not interested in re-signing Posey, who was a key piece to their 2008 NBA championship team. Posey was amnestied by the Indiana Pacers and cleared waivers, so he is free to sign with any team. Other Knicks targets of interest may include Al Thornton and Bostjan Nachbar. ESPN.com

"None of them are dying to go over there. They prefer for there to be an NBA season," Bartelstein said. "My message to the players (is) that we need to be aggressive in looking for things. We're not just going to be reckless and take a job we don't think is a good fit, but if there's a job we think is good, we have to think about doing it. We deal with this situation on a day-to-day basis and we'll see what happens." Bartelstein's agency represents Pacers Danny Granger, Paul George, Brandon Rush, Dahntay Jones and James Posey.

A day after Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom and Griffin got into it, Posey and the high-flying Griffin exchanged words on several occasions during the Clippers' 114-107 victory over the Pacers. "He plays hard. I play hard. You have to adjust to the game and go about it that way," Posey said. Indianapolis Star

James Posey's agent, Mark Bartelstein, told SI.com that the veteran swingman will not seek a buyout from Indiana. Posey and point guard Darren Collison were acquired by the Pacers in a four-team trade on Wednesday. While Indiana has a pressing need for Collison, it would appear to have little need for the 33-year-old Posey, who has two years and more than $13 million remaining on his contract. The Pacers used their lottery pick to draft Paul George in June and already have wings Danny Granger, Mike Dunleavy, Dahntay Jones and Brandon Rush on their roster. SI.com
