The Return of (the other) Nate?

With the imminent arrival of The Texas Tornado, trade rumors are swirling around the Sonics' Rashard Lewis. One of them involves the New York Knicks and two former Seattle prep stars:
According to NBA insiders, the Knicks could make the Sonics a sign-and-trade offer for Lewis that could include Seattle natives Nate Robinson and Jamal Crawford.

Crawford is owed $35 million over the next four seasons, and the Knicks could add Robinson's contract or that of Channing Frye to come within 75 percent of a new Lewis deal, per rules of the collective bargaining agreement.

Wilkens said Tuesday that the Sonics plan to sign Lewis, who opted out of his contract Friday and will be an unrestricted free agent July 1. To execute a sign-and-trade, the Sonics would have to sign Lewis to a new contract and then trade him.

Read the rest in the Seattle P.I.
As much as I love Nate the Great, is he worth a Rashard? And for that matter, do the Sonics want to add two more small-fry guards to a group that already resembles the cast of Willow? This sounds like more wishful thinking on the part of the Knicks, who have a habit of leaking false trade "rumors".

---bad idea jeans, take 83.

"I've... got... a... plan. Let's grab all the unsuccessful pros from Seattle High Schools that haven't had great NBA careers and put them together on the pro roster."

"Yeah, totally. The reason they are bad is because they're just too far from home."

"Any chance we can get Spencer with the 2nd pick, or is that too high?"

"A little. Maybe we can sign and trade down, and get Stuckey too?"

"That would be AWESOME!"
"I agree."

"Hey, anyone know Doug Christie's number... I think he could provide a 'Jake Taylor' type veteran influence for the team."


---cut! that's a wrap!

I don't see why the Sonics would be interested in doing this if they're just going to leave town after next season. Now the Mariners on the other hand...

Does anyone else think that other GMs just laugh whenever they see Isaiah's number on call display?

why the holy hell would the sonics want nate, or more pointedly, jamal crawford?

Was it Crawford or Richardson who hit something like 16 straight shots en route to scoring 50 earlier this season?

Regarding Richardson: dude shouldn't even be in the league. If this deal is really in the works, it sounds like Isaiah is trying to be on the other end of a swindling for once.

Nate is, well, a bonehead. Worse: a 5'9" bonehead. Remind me again why we would want him?

I would rather let Rashard walk, then do that deal.

If the deal was crawford and Frye there is something worth exploring. Crawford can play 1-3 and Frye adds depth down low. That would give the team a few different options such as running an athletic lineup of Crawford, Allen, Durant, Frye, and Collison.
