Nate Robinson has agreed to a two-year deal with the Denver Nuggets to bolster their bench. Robinson, who played last season with the Chicago Bulls, has a player option on the second-year of the deal which is for the Nuggets' bi-annual salary-cap exception, worth about $4.03 million.
Robinson was also courted by the New York Knicks, but ultimately they could not offer him the financial security that Denver could. The Nuggets will be his sixth team in the league since being
drafted in the first round in 2005 by the Knicks.
Robinson was crucial to Chicago's impressive season in 2012-13 in the absence of Derrick Rose, he averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 assists, increasing his scoring output in the playoffs to 16.3 points per game. Robinson thanked the Bulls, and the city of Chicago on social media.
Chicago will always have a place in my heart. I'm going to miss all of my teammates. It was a treat playing along side of all of them. All are stand up guys. I know the NBA is a business, but when you build friendships with guys on a team and a connection with fans in a city, it's hard to say goodbye.
Thanks again for the love, Chitown.
