The Nate Rumor Returns

Our pal TenaciousT tipped me off to a rumor that Mark Spears floated at the bottom of his recent column. Anyone interested in a (very) undersized two guard with a questionable attitude?

The Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers are among the teams who have expressed some interest in New York Knicks guard Nate Robinson(notes), league sources said. Robinson's base-year status, however, makes it difficult for any trade and the Knicks are said to be reluctant to ship Robinson to an Eastern Conference team, further complicating the Celtics' efforts to land him.

Have at it on the Trade Machine, I couldn't find a combination that worked, got bored and gave up. Personally, I'm not interested, we already have the real Kryptonite for Duuuhhwight anyone, Kendrick Perkins, but more importantly I really do not like Nate's game. He needs the ball to be effective, and that's not how the Celtics offense works. On the positive side, it sounds like he really wants to play in Boston, but that's about all I've got.
