Nate Deal Official

According to the Herald:

A long two days finally came to a conclusion roughly 30 minutes ago, when the Celtics and Knicks agreed to a five-player deal that will send Eddie House, J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker to New York in exchange for Nate Robinson and reserve forward Marcus Landry.

Both teams are now waiting for approval from the NBA – a process that could talk time, considering the number of trades that the league office now has to approve.

And they add that, in addition to going after Caron Butler:

This trade also means that Ray Allen gets to remain a Celtic, though the team looked into a wide array of potentially big deals using the veteran guard’s expirin max contract as bait.

A team source said that the Cs looked into acquiring Phoenix forward Amare Stoudemire, for instance. Management also looked into possible trades for Utah’s Carlos Boozer, Miami’s Mchael Beasley, Philadelphia’s Andre Iguodala and Golden State’s Monte Ellis.

  • Time for a Blockbuster Trade Baby!


  • wr celts fan

    how many times did we all see eddie hit a three or 2 then as soon the other team figures it out chase him off the line as soon as the ball even starts goin his way. (happend the other nite in sacramento) effectively ending the play because he cant dribble or make a contested layup. nate brings the versatility and variety at eddies spot. def not a block buster, but servicable.

    Knicks didn’t even have to throw in some number 2 picks?

  • I bleed green in L.A.

    Yay! No blockbuster deal, no ring. And we probably lose Ray at the end of the year. Let’s go Cavs, beat those Flakers!

    Too bad they couldnt get Monta Ellis…he plays good defense and can handle the ball well.
    Houston was able to pull an excellent starter in Kevin Martin out of T-Mac.

    slam dunk AND 3 point shootout champs is on our team but the good old KG is the champ this team need the most.

    Nate Robinson’s Twitter doesn’t make me hate him any less. WORD AAAAPPP

  • Aingelives

    Welcome aboard Nate!!

  • I will miss Eddie, he was certainly a part of the C’s success the last two years.
    OK, what the hell is WORD AAPP?

  • Dang…I thought Eddie played really well with Marquis early on and was looking forward to seeing more of that. Hey maybe he’ll get waved and we’ll see him in a month??

    Nate only helps us with the few matchups where athleticism rather than size will help, aka not anybody in our playoff path. I mean really, who cares about how blah Eddie was against New Orleans?

    And I’m worried now the refs will go from hating the C’s to nuking the C’s at every opportunity…

    I’m happy for the trade. Eddie has been next to worthless for the team this year. I hope he does well with the Knicks. Nate brings instant offense and much needed energy off the bench. I hoping for big things from him.

  • KY Celts fan

    I’m even more happy that JR and Walker are gone! No more whining about play time for the kids anymore.
