    Default Greek team Olympiakos looking at Nate Robinson?

    <DL class=byline>BY ALAN HAHN | [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] <DD>9:43 PM EDT, July 14, 2009 </DD></DL><!-- sphereit start -->''LAS VEGAS - Nate Robinson may be getting a big fat Greek payday. Newsday has learned that Olympiakos, the Athens-based team that last summer lured Josh Childress away from the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], has offered [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]' 5-9 guard a two-year contract.

    Robinson, 25, a restricted free agent, could earn $10 million in the deal, according to a source. Knicks president Donnie Walsh said Tuesday that he had no information about the offer from Olympiakos other than the initial report by a Greek media outlet Monday night.

    Robinson's agent, Aaron Goodwin, said he had no comment about the offer.

    Walsh and Goodwin are expected to talk again Friday about Robinson's future with the Knicks. Walsh has said his initial plan is to try to sign Robinson, but other factors suggest he may eventually seek a sign-and-trade.
    The Knicks - who are owned by Cablevision, which also owns Newsday - drafted a point guard, Toney Douglas, and apparently are pursuing others in free agency. It is believed they are seriously considering a one-year offer of the full midlevel exception ($5.8 million) to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Of course, if Robinson takes the Olympiakos deal, the Knicks would only have to make a qualifying offer next June to retain his NBA rights as a restricted free agent.

    Robinson, one of the smallest players in the league, had a breakthrough performance last season, when he averaged a career-high 17.2 points. His popularity skyrocketed after he won his second Slam Dunk title at NBA All-Star weekend in February when he donned all green, called himself KryptoNate and dunked over 6-11 [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Robinson finished third in the NBA Sixth Man of the Year voting.

    But along with his bouncy personality comes an overabundance of one-on-one mentality and a penchant to play to the crowd. For all of his dynamic athleticism, he also is not a dedicated defender.

    Childress was a restricted free agent last season with the Hawks when he signed a three-year, $20-million contract. Tuesday, he informed the Hawks that he will remain in Greece for another season.

    The Knicks are monitoring the Carlos Boozer situation with the Jazz. Boozer told a Chicago radio station Tuesday that he expects to be traded, and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] are reported to have serious interest.

    The Knicks aren't believed to be real players in the Boozer talks at this point. That type of scenario may have to involve Robinson, if not restricted free agent [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. The Knicks would be more than willing to rent Boozer, who has one year left on his contract, but it is unlikely they would agree to sign him to an extension as part of the trade.

    The interest in Miller started to heat up when word got out that he might consider a one-year offer to go into free agency next summer, when half of the league will have cap space. A person with knowledge of the situation said it is too early yet for Miller, who is seeking $10 million per year, to consider a one-year offer at the midlevel exception.''

    If we dont resign Nate that may be the best option for us.

    He go play for the greek team for 2 years or one year but doesent count against our cap. After we go thru the free agency next year and we also see how Toney Douglass play we can sign him then or trade him since we still gonna have his rights.
