Nate Robinson headed to Boston?

Knicks beat writer Alan Hahn just tweeted that Nate Robinson has been traded to the Celtics, likely for Eddie House. Meanwhile, Adrian Wojnarowski says that it’s not a done deal.

Robinson has been in and out of Mike D’Antoni’s doghouse all season, mainly because he doesn’t play point guard the way that D’Antoni wants him to. However, he has posted a career high in assist ratio (the percentage of a player’s possessions that end in an assist) with 21.3%, so he has improved in that area of the game. Conversely, his turnover ratio — 10.1% — is his highest since his rookie season, so that’s a problem.

The Celtics are just going to ask him to come off the bench and score, and he should be very productive in that role. His PER (17.95) is #11 amongst point guards and scoring has never been a problem. He is one of the league’s best athletes and should add significant punch to the Celtics’ rotation.
