When Marc Spears reported the Celtics had made an offer to try to nab Nate Robinson from New York, we wondered who the Celtics offered. Now, we know.
The ultimate pu-pu platter of offers. J.R. Giddens and undisclosed future considerations (which I’m assuming means a draft pick or two).
Gary Tanguay reported today that the Celtics made their offer right before Robinson blew up for 41 points against the Atlanta Hawks. (By the way, that’s exactly what the Celtics need. A weapon to use against the Hawks.) After seeing Robinson shake off the cobwebs left by 14 consecutive DNP-CD’s to destroy Atlanta, the Knicks told the Celtics, “Thanks, but no thanks.”
For the Celtics, I don’t think Nate Robinson is the best fit. How in the world does he fit into the same backcourt as Eddie House, or even Rajon Rondo?
But if the Celtics were to get him for next to nothing, that would have been a hell of a deal.
Especially if he could have scored 41 on Atlanta the next time they meet the Celtics.
