Nate Robinson Reportedly Agrees To Two-Year Deal With Celtics

A source has told Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears that the two year deal Nate Robinson agreed to with the Celtics on Friday is worth a total of $9 million, "plus bonuses." 

FanHouse's Sam Amick points out the importance of those bonuses:

That means Robinson will be earning back the $1 million lost when he was benched for two games at the end of the season and fell short of a bonus he would have earned by playing in 58 games instead of 56.

Robinson should provide some much needed depth at the point guard position. After getting traded to Boson last season, Robinson averaged 6.5 points in 26 games with the Celtics and played a key role in some of the team's playoffs games, particularly Game 6 against the Magic and Game 4 against the Lakers in the Finals. 

His return already has already garnered the excited reaction of at least one fan:
