Nate Robinson talks are complete or nearing completion, and the rumored trade involves Marcus Landry joining Robinson on his way to Boston. The trade, according to Real GM, is as follows:
Multiple sources say the Knicks have reached a tentative agreement on a deal with Boston sending Nate Robinson and a second player to the Celtics for Eddie House, J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker.
Marcus Landry will be the other player sent to Boston, according to a source that spoke with RealGM’s Christopher Reina.
If this is it — and I haven’t heard any rumblings of any other Boston possibilities — I can assume Danny Ainge is not happy with the trades. The Celtics have been in a tailspin and I don’t think anybody believes Marcus Landry and Nate Robinson will come to the rescue.
Still, adding Walker to the mix adds some interesting possibilities. Specifically, will they make another trade to make use of the two roster spots? (All signs say no.) Or are they planning to fill those spots after some buy-outs have been made?
I can’t be more disappointed. Nate Robinson’s the best the Celtics could do? NATE ROBINSON?? And I even like the trade, on its own. I just think Boston needed to do something more — something bigger — to change the momentum.
If anything happens between 2:10 and 3:30, I’ll be back right after to fill you in. I have a paper due at the worse possible time.
