My issue is that the Nate for House trade did not need to include Walker. Danny wanted Robinson. D'Antoni wanted Eddie. The original deal which included Eddie, Giddens and a 2nd rounder was more than fair. Somehow the Knicks also got Walker. We still had options on him and he would have been a cheap player to keep around. For any talk that he might return to the Celtics, there's no way that happens. Boston will be the last place Walker wants to sign. After seeing the court he will not want to return to the scene of the crime, aka repeated DNP CD's. Now I'm not going to compare this to the Suns getting Joe Johnson from us. Obviously that was a bigger deal with more coming to Boston, JJ being a better player, etc. It's only been 2 starts for Walker, so we shall see. But speaking of seeing, it simply would have been nice to see what Walker could have done in Boston both in the past (Doc's fault) and in the future (Danny's fault).
