Nate Robinson and the Denver Nuggets have come to an agreement over a two-year contract worth a cut of over $4million.
Robinson, a 5-foot-9 point guard holds a career average of 11.5 points per game but averaged 13.1 points per game with 4.4 assists last season with the Chicago Bulls.
Robinson was a key prospect in regards to the Bulls’ offense and helping them battle through their playoff run last season.
He appeared 12 times and was active in Game 1 where he racked up 27 points and 9 assists with 40 minutes on the court.
Nate took to Twitter to thank his fans and players alike for his time at the Bulls.
He said: “Chicago will always have a place in my heart I'm a miss all my teammates it was a treat playing along side of all of them all stand up guys.”
However, it won’t take long for Robinson to fit in at the Nuggets. Re-uniting with familiar faces Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari when they were all Knicks players.
In playing terms, Robinson will join Lawson and will give the Nuggets some serious pace up and down the court.
Nate will give Ty Lawson security behind with also being able to move over and play the shooting guard role.
However, Robinson needs to be kept in check. He has the tendency to attempt to shoot himself out of a rut without altering his game plan but I feel new Coach Brian Shaw will have a good control and management over this.
No matter what, if Robinson manages to come to the Nuggets bringing the game he had with the Bulls last season, the veteran PG will be welcomed by the fans.
After Andre Iguodala left for the Warriors, the Nuggets have brought in six new players including the recently signed J.J. Hickson and now Robinson.
