The Denver Nuggets have reached a two-year contract agreement with Nate Robinson that is reportedly worth more than $4 million. According to ESPN, The deal is for the Nuggets’ biannual salary-cap exception that is worth $4.1 million. The 5-foot-9 Robinson was an absolute beast for the Chicago Bulls last year, playing in a career-high 82 games and averaging 13.1 points and 4.4 assists.
Robinson really came into his own during the playoffs when the Bulls were plagued by injuries and averaged 16.3 points per game for the team. Robinson is likely to play a reserve role under first-year coach Brian Shaw since the Nuggets already have a star point guard in Ty Lawson.
A first-round draft pick in 2005, Robinson has averaged 11.5 points over parts of eight seasons with the Bulls, Golden State Warriors, Oklahoma City Thunder, Boston Celtics and New York Knicks.
