James Posey (born January 13 1977 in Cleveland, Ohio) is a professional basketball player, currently playing forward/guard for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association. Posey was selected out of Xavier University by the Denver Nuggets with the 18th pick of the 1999 NBA Draft. He played a little over three seasons with the team before being sent to the Houston Rockets in a three-team deal also involving the Philadelphia 76ers on December 18 2002.

After finishing the season with the Rockets, he signed with the Grizzlies as a free agent in the 2003 offseason.

He was considered by some to be the team's most valuable player in 2003-04, but struggled with injury and weight problems in the 2004-2005 season.

On August 2, 2005, Posey was involved in NBA history's largest trade ever, which involved 13 players, and five different teams. Through this trade, the Miami Heat acquired point guard Jason Williams, forward Antoine Walker, shooting guard Andre Emmett, and the draft rights to Roberto Duenas. The Memphis Grizzlies received small forward Eddie Jones, and guard Raul Lopez. Boston, who delt Walker to the Heat, received a package that included Qyntel Woods, the draft rights to Albert Miralles, two second-round draft picks, and cash. The Boston Celtics also picked up Curtis Borchardt. Utah was able to acquire Greg Ostertag, and theNew Orleans Hornets acquired forward Rasual Butler and guard Kirk Snyder.

Posey is known primarily for his perimeter defense and recently his sharp-shooting three point talents.
