BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics have re-signed guard Nate Robinson.

Terms of the deal were not released, but the Boston Herald reported last week that the diminutive guard agreed to a two-year, $8 million pact.

Boston acquired the three-time NBA Slam Dunk champion in a five-player deal with the Knicks in February, and the 5-foot-9, 180-pound sparkplug proved vital off the bench for the Eastern Conference champions.

Though his minutes went down considerably following the trade, Robinson donated 6.5 points and 2.0 assists in 26 regular season games as a backup to Rajon Rondo.

The 26-year-old netted three double-digit scoring games in the postseason, including a 13-point effort in a series-clinching win over Orlando in the conference finals.

"It is great to have Nate back and we think that he can contribute more significantly this upcoming season after a full training camp with the team," said Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge. "He helped us win some crucial playoff games this past postseason and we believe that we will see great things from him this coming season."

Robinson spent the first four-plus years of his career in New York. Over 338 career games, the Washington product has averaged 12.0 points and 2.7 assists per contest.
