NEWARK -- Old Knicks fans may want to know how David Lee and Nate Robinson, now both members of the Golden State Warriors, are doing. Golden State, however, played the Nets here Wednesday night.

"It's going well," said Lee, traded in July of 2012 for Kelenna Azubuike, Anthony Randolph and Ronny Turiaf -- now all gone. "We've got a new coaching staff this year, a little bit of a new look, a young team starting to figure things out."

Lee is Golden State's second leading scorer (19.9) and leading rebounder (10.4), and had 12 points and nine rebounds. In his sixth season, he has become acclimated to the lifestyle that, "you've got to realize is constantly changing," he said. "You get trades, new teammates, new coaches. You just have to realize what you stand for and how you want to go about your business, stick to your principles."

Robinson, who had nine points and seven assists and is also in his sixth season, just came aboard Golden State's team as a free agent on Jan. 4 and has been averaging almost 14 points, along with his trademark surplus energy. Since being traded by the Knicks for J.R. Giddens, Eddie House and Bill Walker -- Giddens and House are gone -- he played for Boston, then Oklahoma City.

"I'm happy," Robinson said. "It's not easy, but as long as you're around the game, that's home. Home for me is basketball."
