The Denver Nuggets quickened an already speedy backcourt by bringing in Nate Robinson.

The veteran point guard agreed to a two-year deal on Monday, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.

Robinson joins Ty Lawson to give the Nuggets a tandem that can fly up and down the floor. The addition of Robinson also creates a backlog in the backcourt, with the Nuggets already having up-and-comer Evan Fournier, veteran Andre Miller, rookie Erick Green and newly acquired Randy Foye as well.

The 5-foot-9 Robinson averaged 13 points a contest for the Chicago Bulls last season.

Around the league

Clippers • Los Angeles signed free agent center Byron Mullens, who averaged a career-high 10.6 points and 6.4 rebounds in 53 games last season with Charlotte.

Mavericks • Dallas hired Houston Rockets executive Gersson Rosas as general manager, filling a spot that technically had been vacant since Don Nelson left the franchise eight years ago. President of basketball operations Donnie Nelson has informally held his father's old title.

Raptors • Toronto signed D.J. Augustin to a one-year deal so he can back up starting point guard Kyle Lowry. The 25-year-old defensive specialist played for Indiana last season.

Heat • Dwyane Wade's attorney says the Miami guard has finally reached a financial settlement with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, ending their six-year divorce saga.
