Knicks working on deal to ship Nate Robinson to Celtics
The Knicks have been looking to relocate Nate Robinson since December and they may have found a taker in the Boston Celtics.
According to a league source, the Knicks and their Atlantic Division rival are working on a deal that would send Robinson, the back-up guard and three-time Slam Dunk champion, to Boston. Since Robinson is entering the last year of his contract the Knicks will only take back expiring contracts.
Eddie House, who played for Mike D’Antoni in Phoenix, has an expiring contract as does Tony Allen and Brian Scalabrine.
The Knicks have been trying to trade Robinson since December when D’Antoni benched the energetic yet erratic guard for 14 games. The Knicks were in talks with the Memphis Grizzlies but the deal never progressed once Robinson informed the club that he wouldn’t approve a trade to Memphis.
