Nate Robinson will be back in Boston Uniform. He was important part of the Celtic's run in the playoffs and later in Finals, particularly in game 4, where he and Glen Davis outplayed the Lakers.
The Celtics are about to extend their relationship with Nate Robinson, after all.
The team, according to a league source, just reached agreement with their backup point guard on a two-year deal that will pay him approximately $4 million per season.
Agent Aaron Goodwin, who had told the Herald early in the week that a deal could be reached by the end of the week, turned out to be quite the sage. Agreement came after a brief slowdown in talks on Thursday.
Robinson, according to Goodwin, had made an unspecified concession, and the guard was in the process of waiting for the Celtics to make a concession of their own.
By this morning, both sides were satisfied. The Celtics, with many other needs to fill with minimum contracts, no longer have to list point guard among those needs.
If I may add Mr. Ainge should really add some depth on the bench. Someone who can play along with the Big three and learn from them besides Kendrick and Rajon of course.
