According to multiple media outlets, including and Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports, the Boston Celtics have made an offer for New York Knicks guard Nate Robinson.

Robinson, who missed 14 straight games after falling out of favor with head coach Mike D'Antoni this season, is a free agent to be and has been the talk of much trade and buy-out rumors all season.

While the Celtics have many players who will be coming off the books after this season, it is questionable if the Knicks would be interested in the expiring contracts of Tony Allen, J.R. Giddens, or Bill Walker, as the Knicks are trying to clear cap space for the summer or 2010.

Robinson, however, still has some power in all of these trade rumors, as he holds a veto clause and could reject anything he is not interested in. 

According to Spears, the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies have also shown some interest. However, Robinson has already said in the past he would play for the Celtics.
