With the NBA trade deadline looming tomorrow, it's looking like the New York Knicks could be sending reigning Slam Dunk champion Nate Robinson(notes) to the Boston Celtics, according to the Boston Herald.
Robinson didn't make it to Chicago last night to be part of the team's loss to the Chicago Bulls because he supposedly had flu-like symptoms. But the New York Post is saying Robinson didn't make the trip so he wouldn't infect the team with a bad attitude.
The word is that Robinson is headed to Boston in exchange for Eddie House(notes). The only other players the Celtics have that would match up with Robinson salary-wise are Brian Scalabrine(notes) and Tony Allen(notes).
Robinson's contract is up at season's end but you can be sure he'd like to get out of New York as soon as possible since he and Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni haven't exactly gotten along this season.
