NBA Trade Rumors Nate Robinson to NY Knicks?
January 04, 2013 05:55 PM EST
Nate Robinson has proved that height is not necessary to make a career in the NBA as the diminutive point guard is playing his eighth year in the league, but during that time he has jumped from team to team in search of a home. And if the latest trade rumors are correct, he will return to the NY Knicks, the team that made him a first round draft choice back in 2005.
Bleacher Report writer Jessica Isner has suggested that Chicago will likely move one of their guards when Derrick Rose returns to the team and Robinson is the likely player headed elsewhere. Recent reports have the 5'9" guard headed back to New York in a move that would add some depth and scoring punch to the Knicks bench.
Robinson is averaging nearly 11 points and 3.5 assists on the year and his career numbers are close to the same, but Chicago will have a log jam in the back-court soon and that could actually benefit New York as they search for added depth.
The NBA trade deadline is still a few weeks off, but rumors are starting to hit social media and sports sites as teams look to strengthen their rosters for the second half of the season. This is one of those deals that could happen and the NY Knicks would become an even bigger force in the Eastern Conference if they acquire Robinson before the deadline.
