CELTICS ACQUIRE NATE ROBINSON
Why couldn't the C's make this move BEFORE the dunk contest?
The Celtics will send Eddie House, JR Giddens, and Bill Walker to the Knicks in exchange for Nate Robinson and rookie forward Marcus Landry.
I like this deal, but only a little. While it improves the Celtics by providing the bench with a legitimate PG, it doesn't do anything beyond that. It doesn't make KG or Pierce 2 years younger. It doesn't alleviate Ray Allen from his month long shooting slumps. And it doesn't make Rasheed Wallace stop taking threes.
The one position where the Celtics had both quality and youth was point guard. Now they have depth there. But they're still too agéd and injury prone to go beyond the 2nd round.
