Three-time NBA slam-dunk champ Nate Robinson was busted early yesterday for relieving himself on a downtown White Plains street, police said.

Cops caught the ex-Knick, whose 5-foot-9 height belies his 43½-inch vertical leap, in flagrante delicto at 1:53 a.m. across the street from City Hall.

“One of our officers spotted a gentleman, later identified as Nathaniel Robinson, urinating on the sidewalk in full view,” White Plains Police Commissioner David Chong told The Post.

The exodus of centers for the Boston Celtics continues with Nenad Krstic reportedly signing a multi-year deal with a team in Russia.

Krstic, who along with Jeff Green, joined the Celtics after being traded from Oklahoma City in February for Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson, has agreed to a two-year deal worth $6 million Euros with reigning champions CSKA Moskow.

The 7-foot center, set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, averaged 9.1 points and 5.3 rebounds in 24 games with the Celtics.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Nate Robinson underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his right knee the team announced in a press release.

The 5-9 guard first experienced discomfort in the knee following the team’s practice on Monday. After deliberation, Robinson and the team made the decision to proactively address the situation.

“After consulting with our medical team, we have decided this is the best course of action to resolve the issue with certainty, and have Nate back on the court as we enter into the final stages of the season,” said Thunder Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti.

Robinson is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Celtics Send Perkins to OKC for Jeff Green

Just before Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, the Boston Celtics agreed to ship center Kendrick Perkins and guard Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder for forward Jeff Green and big man Nenad Krstic, two league sources said.

Neither team was done, though.

The Celtics also traded rookie center Semih Erden and forward Luke Harangody to the Cleveland Cavaliers for a second-round draft pick.

While the Celtics were unloading big men, the Thunder acquired another one, sending Morris Peterson and D.J. White to Charlotte for center Nazr Mohammed.

Boston Shopping Robinson, Daniels for SF, SG

Injuries have forced Boston into thinking about making a move. The Celtics, once thought to be bystanders, now are at least thinking of tweaking their roster due to the recent, serious injury to Marquis Daniels.

The area of concentration is Daniels’ position: small forward or big guard. Not only would it help to have someone who can step into that role to spell Daniels — there is no assurance he will be back after bruising his spinal cord — but also to spell Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, both of whom have played in all 54 games this season.

Going the trade route means the Celtics must part with someone, and, looking at their roster, there are only two viable candidates: Daniels and Nate Robinson.

Both Kendrick Perkins and Glen Davis have expiring contracts, but they clearly are part of the team’s future. No one is going to take on Jermaine O’Neal (called “a basketball wastrel” by one NBA executive) and everyone else is either safe or has little to no trade value.

Pierce: Knicks Were Toxic to Robinson

Celtics captain Paul Pierce believes it was important for Nate Robinson to escape the losing climate of the Knicks.

Pierce, taking a shot at New York, said Robinson needed a change of scenery after four-plus seasons with the Knicks.

“As a group, it’s helping him a lot,” Pierce told The Post.

“Seeing our habits on and off the court, he’s understanding it’s the better routine. When you get around a certain team and there’s no discipline, you tend to go off on your own and do whatever you want. It’s a lot different here. We’re a championship team on and off the court. He’s seeing it and learning from it.”
