Done deal: Nate Robinson
The Boston Celtics announced today that they have re-signed guard Nate Robinson. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"It is great to have Nate back and we think that he can contribute more significantly this upcoming season after a full training camp with the team," said Celtics President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge. "He helped us win some crucial playoff games this past postseason and we believe that we will see great things from him this coming season."
Robinson, a 5-foot, 9-inch guard, averaged 10.1 points, 2.9 assists and shot 39.0 percent from three-point distance last season between the Celtics and the New York Knicks. After joining the Celtics, Robinson shot 41.4 percent from beyond the arc in the 26 contests he played for the C’s. The former Washington Husky netted a season-high 41 points against Atlanta on January 1 and scored 20 or more points seven times in his combined 56 games last season. Originally drafted by the Phoenix Suns with the 21st pick in the 2005 draft, he was acquired by the Celtics on February 18 along with Marcus Landry from the Knicks in exchange for Eddie House, J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker.
