Nate Robinson's Agent Calls It '100 Percent' He Will Return to Ne
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?”Well, the 5-foot-9 guard is a restricted free agent. And, while it’s highly unlikely a team would put an offer down on him at this late stage and in this economy, isn’t that still a possibility?
"No,” Goodwin said. "Nate has made it clear from the start that he only wants to play for New York. After July 1, we didn’t talk to any other teams.”
That includes other countries.
"That was never a consideration,” Goodwin said of Robinson possibly going overseas after reports surfaced over the summer he was pondering signing with the Greek team Olympiakos.
Goodwin expects Robinson to return to New York on a one-year deal, which would make him an unrestricted free agent next summer. Goodwin expects a deal will be finalized by next week.
