Nate Robinson’s agent continues to reach out to Donnie Walsh in an attempt to free his client from Mike D’Antoni’s doghouse.
Walsh confirmed Friday that Aaron Goodwin contacted him earlier this
week to discuss the status of the fifth-year guard, who was benched for
his eighth straight game Friday night as the Knicks (5-3 during that
stretch) beat the Clippers, 95-91. According to a source, Goodwin first

Although he says he’s not ready to announce his retirement, Stephon Marbury said yesterday he has "shut everything down," taking the season off to work on his businesses and claims he will return to the NBA next season.
After a frustrating summer of free-agent purgatory, David Lee finally has a deal to return to the Knicks, albeit for less money and less long-term security than he wanted.
This much is said to be certain: Nate Robinson will play for the New York Knicks this season.
"Yes, I’m 100 percent sure of that,” his agent, Aaron Goodwin, said Tuesday in an interview with FanHouse. "Where else is he going to go?”
The only holding out on David Lee’s mind right now is mainly the hope that his contract status will be resolved fairly soon. In fact we’re hearing through a source tonight that there are "are a couple of sign-and-trades still being considered before a one-year deal is negotiated."
