The Celtics finally finalized the trade to acquire Nate Robinson and they gave up Eddie House, J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker to nab the slam dunk champion.

“Nate is one of the great athletes in the league and he brings a dynamic scorer to our team,” said Danny Ainge, Celtics President of Basketball Operations said in a release. “We have been seeking a second ball handler capable of penetrating the defense and we believe that he provides that. We love Nate’s ability to pressure the ball defensively and we think he can add to our defense as well as our offense.”

Robinson is expected to be in uniform Friday against the Portland Trail Blazers. Not sure if Marcus Landry, who actually had a solid rookie season in New York, has a future with the Celtics. He may be worth taking a look at because the Celtics have two open roster spots because they traded three players and acquired two.
