BOSTON – The Boston Celtics have agreed in principle with guard Nate Robinson on a new contract, a team official said.

The deal will reunite the 5-foot-9 guard with Glen Davis on a Boston bench that provided an important contribution during last year’s run to the NBA finals.

“We’re like Shrek and Donkey,” Robinson said. “You can’t separate us.”

A Celtics spokesman declined to comment, but the Boston Herald reported that Robinson will get $4 million a year for two seasons.


HEAT: Mike Miller’s deal with Miami finally got completed, then Miami landed a pair of centers, re-signing restricted free agent Joel Anthony and also signing second-round draft pick Dexter Pittman from Texas.

Anthony has spent three seasons with the Heat, mostly as a defensive-minded reserve. Pittman was the 32nd pick in last month’s draft and has been with Miami’s summer-league club.
