NBA Trading Deadline Affects Green Team
With a date set with the Los Angeles Lakers later tonight, the Boston Celtics may be a little undermanned on their bench.
That’s because Danny Ainge has reached a tentative agreement to deal Eddie House, J.R. Giddens, and Bill Walker to the New York Knicks for guard Nate Robinson and a player yet to be named.
So with Robinson in and House out, what does this mean for the Celtics?
Well, House has struggled this season, compared to his record setting season last year where he hit 44.5 percent of his 3-pointers. House, in 50 games, has averaged 7.2 points per game, coming off of the bench for Boston.
Robinson, 25, is averaging 13.2 points per game with 3.7 assister per game. He has fallen out of favor with head coach Mike D’Antoni, like many other Knicks in the past two seasons. Robinson will provide Boston with a better scoring and defensive option off the bench for Boston, rather then House, and is set to become a free agent after the season.
