The Nuggets are close to trading guard Nate Robinson to Boston, a source told Yahoo Sports.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) January 13, 2015
So, this came out of the blue. Could Nate Rob and Denver be the expiring contract and third team that Doc and Danny were looking for to complete their trade for Austin Rivers? If Big Baby is on his way to Boston and we can get a Shrek and Donkey reunion, I might lose my mind.
Boston is sending Jameer Nelson to Denver for Nate Robinson, source tells Yahoo.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) January 13, 2015
Nelson has a player option for next season whereas Nate is in his final year. Nice work, DA.
With Nate Robinson going to Boston (h/t @SpearsNBAYahoo), I'm told he would love to shore up Clippers backup PG spot if waived by Celtics.— Sam Amick (@sam_amick) January 13, 2015
So does that mean we're trading Rivers and Robinson for--gulp--Matt Barnes?
Nate Robinson is expected to get a buyout with the Celtics, a source told Yahoo Sports.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) January 13, 2015
Denver is not sending any picks to Boston in trade, a source said.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) January 13, 2015
So, the Austin Rivers trade is still in limbo...
The Celtics have competed the buyout of Nate Robinson, I'm told, after he was traded from Denver yesterday.— Sam Amick (@sam_amick) January 14, 2015
Typo on Robinson info. Obviously "completed." Now to see if he can find his way to the Clippers to reunite with Doc Rivers.— Sam Amick (@sam_amick) January 14, 2015
