NBA: Nuggets sign ex-Bulls point guard Nick Robinson
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.
