Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald (and Bohemian of CelticsLife) is reporting that Nate Robinson is close to becoming a Celtic.
According to multiple sources, the Celticsand Knicks are close to a deal that would bring guard Nate Robinson to the Celts, possibly in exchange for Eddie House. A league source, as well as a Knicks source, said yesterday that both sides still have interest in the deal that has been discussed in the past month. Two sources in Sacramento, where the Celts played the Kings last night, verified the interest from both sides. The Celts have narrowed their positional need to a backup point guard who can defend. They have until tomorrow’s trade deadline to fill that need.
According to the Daily News Robinson did not travel with the Knicks to Chicago, but stayed home with the "flu." Good chance when he goes to the airport the flight he books will either be to Los Angeles or Portland.
