The report comes via The Boston Herald:
Eddie House, speaking at Celtics practice this afternoon at UCLA, just told the team media that his trade to New York for Nate Robinson is almost complete.
The Celtics guard added that he could have remained at the team hotel, but reported for practice in the event that the trade didn’t go through.
“I wouldn’t say it’s a done deal, but there’s a pretty good chance it’s going through,” said House’s agent, Mark Bartlestein.”
In apparent support of House’s theory, the New York media entered the locker room in Madison Square Garden tonight to find Robinson’s locker cleared out, save for a jar of vaseline. Robinson had missed a game Tuesday night in Chicago with what management described as the flu.
Put two and two together here and this one looks like a done deal. Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports has also just tweeted he expects J.R. Giddens to be another possible part included in the deal. Obviously, there will have be more parts that fit to make the deal complete, but the evidence is pretty large that this one gets completed by the deadline tomorrow.
Talk about a guy with class, House goes to practice on the verge of being dealt. We will miss you Eddie.
