UPDATE 2: Hahn is now reporting that deal is close, not done. A. Sherrod Blakely said the holdup is salaries, which is why the trade may take until the eleventh hour… “if at all”. The trade is still likely.
Let’s start over. Source says Nate-to-Celtics is “close” but no specifics yet can be confirmed. Everyone gets a free punch to my #P90X abs.
Nate’s BYC status complicates this trade. House makes about $200K too much for straight-up trade.
That’s why this deal may not get done until the 11th hour, if at all.
UPDATE: A. Sherrod Blakely reports the deal is simply waiting on league approval, and should be completed sometime today.
Newsday’s Alan Hahn reports the trade is likely for Eddie House and a 2nd round pick.
Nate trade not “official” but done – and @WojYahooNBA says may not finalize until tomorrow – but sounds like it is House/2nd Rnd pick.
Old news: Only a few minutes after Newsday’s Alan Hahn reported that Nate Robinson will officially become a Boston Celtic, Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Fox Sports’ Jeff Goodman report that the two teams are still in discussions but the deal is not done.
Knicks and Celtics still talking on Nate Robinson-Eddie House, three sources say, but may not be a deal until tomorrow.
“D’Antoni wants House, and (Boston) really wants Nate, so everyone is motivated here,” one source told Y! Sports.
I have been told by a source that the Celtics-Knicks deal involving Eddie House and Nate Robinson is “not done”.
Whether the trade is done or not, it seems to be almost certain to occur before tomorrow’s deadline.
Nate Robinson himself has even tweeted lyrics to Eminem’s song When I’m Gone:
N wen I’m gone just carry on don’t mourn rejoice every time u hear da sound of my voice(word aapp)
