House practiced with the Celtics tonight in Los Angeles and told reporters he expects to be traded.
"There's a strong possibility I will be traded to New York
tomorrow," said House. "At the end of the day this is a business, and
the Celtics feel they will be a better team with the guys they are
trying to get."
House said his agent called him this morning to alert him to the
possibility of a trade. He said he is comfortable in the Knicks'
system, having played for Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni in Phoenix.
"Going to New York, I have two months to play some real strong basketball and get some wins with those guys," he said.
I feel bad for Eddie. He's played some good ball and hit some big shots for the Celtics the past few seasons.
As for the deal, Marc Spears says J.R. Giddens is the final piece. That doesn't make sense (it also doesn't work in the RealGM trade checker).
Eddie's salary ($2.8 million) is already higher than Nate's number ($2.02 million). Don't the Knicks have to unload another player for this to work and not the Celtics?
Mark Murphy of the Herald reports the trade is a done deal. There is no mention of other player's in his article.
