The deal is expected to be finalized early this week.
Robinson, a restricted free agent, was courted by Greek team Olympiakos. He averaged a career-best 17.2 points and 4.1 assists in 74 games with the Knicks last season. New York, which nearly traded Robinson to Sacramento midway through the season, is trying to preserve as much salary-cap room as possible for the 2010 free-agent class
That's a good move. Allows us to keep Nate for another year, and possibly resign him in 2010.
Nate is to the Knicks what Leon Washington is to the Jets.
Big time spark plug and a guy who can shift a game within a matter of minutes.
When Nate Rob gets it going, he can be deadly. He just can't be holding onto the ball for so damn long - that's his only guilt.
He's not a spread ball player, can we stop trying to mold him into one and play to his strengths....
Very good move for Nate and our Knicks if this is true. Nate is deadly when he gets it going, my only concern are his antics on the court that make him childish at times. But his play when he's on is incredible and I'm surprise a contending team didn't take him off our hands. I felt the Lakers, Rockets, or even the Jazz could of use his offensive explosion off the bench. I'll be very happy to see Nate back but he has to mature alot and stop all the dancing before, during, and after games.
I think the reason our team is trash is because we take things like ROI fan base into consideration. We don't sign players no one knows about who actually may help the team more. Hopefully this changes.
Being in the IT industry (and this is some major nerd ish here), one thing i love about the Dallas Mavericks is that they were one of the first teams to bring Data Mining to how they sign/trade players. Even to this day their team is built probably the most scientifically of most teams in the NBA because it is done from analysis of Querying all the data of a player against things like effectiveness with another player, effectiveness in certain play, etc. It takes out the element of having a "feeling". Maybe they don't win but they at least get close.
Take a look @ Curry"s ROI, and Jefferies, and all the past scrubs we over paid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1 year for 5 MIL is pretty good, considering it is his first year putting up above average stats.
If he puts up similar numbers and we sneak into the play-offs this up-coming year, Nate will be asking for 8 to 10 MIL a year. There's no question.
Good deal for the Knicks but I'm sure Nate wanted a longer deal. Walsh is the opposite of that waste of space Isiah, he's cheaper than a tightwad with the teams money.
walsh knows whats up, nate one of the best guards in the league
with only a 1 yr contract u know he'll put up stats next year to ensure a better contract come 2010
im glad sessions and miller is off, can u imagine how boring the games would be...they'd have to play that much harder and even 30 wins would be overachievin
