Nate Robinson will sign with Denver Nuggets
by Sam Amick, USA TODAY Sports
The Denver Nuggets are on the verge of signing free agent guard Nate Robinson, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because the deal has not been finalized. Robinson is expected to sign a two-year deal by way of the Nuggets’ bi-annual salary cap exception worth $4.03 million combined, with a player option in the second season.
Robinson is one of the few impact players among the remaining free agents, as he averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 assists with the Chicago Bulls in 2012-13 while filling in for injured point guard Derrick Rose. In addition to the Nuggets, Robinson was in talks with the Milwaukee Bucks, Atlanta Hawks and Dallas Mavericks. If the deal is finalized as expected, this would be the sixth team Robinson has played for in his nine seasons.
