Boston Celtics: Trade
The Celtics sent House, J.R. Giddens, and Bill Walker to New York in exchange for Robinson and Marcus Landry.
“Nate is one of the great athletes in the league and he brings a dynamic scorer to our team,” Celtics president of basketball Danny Ainge said in the team's release on the deal. “We have been seeking a second ball-handler capable of penetrating the defense and we believe that he provides that. We love Nate’s ability to pressure the ball defensively and we think he can add to our defense as well as our offense.
“It is tough to see Eddie go. He was one of my favorite players to watch and he was a key element in winning the 2008 championship and a tremendous presence in the locker room along with his son, Jaelen. J.R. and Billy are two talented young players that haven’t had much of an opportunity to play. We thank them for their commitment and wish them well.”
