Breaking News: Nate Robinson Traded To Boston (Updated)

Nate Robinson

Even though I wrote earlier today that sending Nate Robinson to the Celtics would be the wrong thing to do, apparently Danny Ainge didn’t heed my advice. According to Newsday‘s Knicks beat writer Alan Hahn, the Robinson trade to the Celtics is a done deal. While details haven’t unfolded yet, we’ll update you as soon we know more.

UPDATE:

While Hahn says that the Nate is trade not “official” but is “done,” Yahoo! Sports‘ Adrian Wojnarowski says that the deal will not be finalized until tomorrow. All signs from both camps point to Robinson being traded for Eddie House and a second round pick.

    Well as you said in the earlier article it’s a bad trade if they trade him for House, if the trade is Robinson for Tony Allen, I would take that trade if I were Boston.

    I’ll be happy with just a draft pick

  • ERIC

    Nate fits the persona of the Knicks.. not so much the Celtics.

    For the Knicks, hopefully they got back Tony Allen and a 1st rounder.

  • Celts Fan

    If we gave up a first round pick to rent this socially dysfunctional midget for 3 months I’m gonna douse myself in gasoline and light myself on fire.

    LMFAO Tony Allen is ass, and so is Eddie House..
    Another Celtic sided trade.

  • Rich

    At least he’s not short on green sneakers.

  • The Journeyman

    lol the Celtics got Nate just like in Semi-Pro…

    “We traded our washing machine to get this guy, but man do we sure miss that washing machine.”

  • Matt

    As a crazy celtic fan, I like this trade. We need some youth. I like Eddie and would rather part with Scal or Giddens (doubt the salaries match with giddens). Tony has actually been playing well, but with Marquis back he’s even more expendable…

    hope nate’s first order of business is wiping that smirk off rondo’s face.

  • jmg

    wont help KG’s knee issues and he wont help them stop Lebron, Joe Johnson or DHoward. dont get this move

  • http://dime eyes

    Marquis Daniels being you’re back up Point is like. The Boris Diaw experiment in Atlanta or hoping Joe Johnson could play point in Phx. Do the experts no what a point guard is supposed to play like. How many combo guards have successfully made that transistion. It’s not their fault. If someone is put in a place or system to fail or succeed. They shall. The Knicks just got worse. YESSSSS. Lets get em Nate. Play your role & you’ll really be a household name.

    I hope Nate does good in Boston.. seems like a coo guy so bigups to him getting traded to a contender.. especially coming from Zew York..

    Boston better get back to the Finals.. we want retribution..

    Talkin all that shit and we wont ever see them again when it matters most?? WEAK..

  • The Journeyman

  • two times

    Eddie House is a champ, but he hasn’t been getting it done this year. See ya later, bud. I’d be more upset if it was for Tony Allen, even though he can’t stop making turnovers. As long as Nate knows his role on the Celtics the team should be fine.

  • duke_blue

    why the f**k is lil Nate getting so much publicity

    Don’t Sleep On the Bol
    EDDIE BE STROKIN’ ‘EM

    He acts like he doesn’t know he’s NOT a role player.

    EDDIE = UNJUSTIFIED SWAG

    (but he be hittin’ them joints)

  • relll

    Good trade for the us. This should address some of the Celts offensive problems when they go into those long scoring drought. Giving up a 1st rounder really doesn’t matter for Boston because Doc haven’t given any rookie significant PT since Garnett and Ray Ray came to Boston. I still don’t understand why Doc haven’t atleast tried to develop Walker or Gideon especially with Scal and T. Allen getting major PT.

  • Brown

    If they play the Magic in the playoffs, the Kryptonate references are going to force me to watch the games on mute.

  • LakeShow84

    Im with Brown..

  • LakeShow84

    @ Rell

    Who ever said Doc was a good coach??

  • LakeShow84

    Guess the Celtics dont have anyone to beg out of retirement to come save them..

  • Diego

    Upgrade over House–basically he can provide more instant offense off bench than House. And have you ever seen a guy misjudge the 3-point line as much as House? He must have record (if there were one) for long-ass 2s that were intended to be 3s, but foot was on line.

  • Will

    you guys are a bunch of asses…all of the short jokes about Nate, but they man can jump through the roof…I am a true new york fan, and honestly, Nate should have been starting at point guard for us all season….Duhon is a joke, inconsistant when it comes to scoring…Celtics are getting a guy that can come in the game and give them 20 points in 15 minutes, Nates offensive game is explosive!!! Only down fall has been his height, but as far as his game, he is gifted more than most!!!

    Nate Robinson will surely be missed in the big apple he is a great i am a die hard knick fan and i hated to see him get traded off but the truth is he hustle hard all game never stops and he is truly one of the most athletic NBA players in today’s game. . But honestly i am happy he got traded to a team that has a chance to win it all and what better team then the Celtics so i wish Nate the best of luck!! I will be cheering for him in the playoffs
