Bulls, Nate Robinson close to a contract agreement
The Bulls are close to adding veteran point guard Nate Robinson, according to reports.
SI.com’s Sam Amick quoted Robinson agent Aaron Goodwin as saying his client would sign with Chicago “barring unforeseen problems.”
Robinson played well on offense for Golden State last season, averaging 11.2 points (42.4 percent shooting), 23.5 minutes, 1.2 steals and a career-high 4.5 assists. The three-time NBA slam dunk champion – despite his 5-foot-9 frame – also has played for New York, Boston and Oklahoma City during his nine years in the league.
Robinson would be the Bulls’ sixth newcomer, joining guards Kirk Hinrich and Marquis Teague, swingman Marco Belinelli, forward Vladimir Radmanovic and center Nazr Mohammed.
