Report: Nuggets, Knicks interested in Nate Robinson

Nate Robinson is not going back to Chicago. Let’s just say that Robinson and coach Tom Thibodeau don’t see eye to eye on the defensive end of the court.

However, for teams that need a little scoring, he can be a good value pickup.

The Nuggets and Knicks could use some points off the bench and have some interest, according to multiple reports.

Marc Stein of ESPN had the Denver news.

Sources close to the situation said Saturday that the Denver Nuggets have registered their interest in Robinson, who ranks as one of the most attractive free agents still available after his playoff scoring binges for Chicago.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News tweeted this.

He is one of the best free agents left on the market and averaged 13.2 points and 4.4 assists per game last season for the Bulls… but that doesn’t mean he is getting more than the minimum. At least not much more. Not in the current market. He is certainly a defensive liability.

Denver can offer a larger check, the question is will they? Will anyone?

    After the series against Brooklyn and Miami I think he deserves more than the minimum. He put the Bulls on his back.

    Knicks don’t need another liability on the defensive end who jacks up shots >>regress

    Certainly a defensive liability? Maybe if you expect him to guard Lebron. Pretty sure he can hang… If not make life miserable, for most point guards in the league.

      I agree.
      During the grind of the regular season he did seem to loose his concentration a few times. But during the playoffs, he played “almost” as good defense as a 5-10 guy could.

      Good luck to you Nate.

    He and Metta can form a team in China.Metta jacks 3s , Nate jacks the rest and the team is run and gun. So much fun.Nate comes out with his own line of shoes and Metta, comes out with some Mao sayings.Can’t wait

    dude deserves some money after going lil jordan in game 4. I’d love it if thibs changed his mind and wanted to keep him around (we NEED shooting) but I’ll be a N Rob fan wherever he lands.

    I wouldn’t like to see him back in the Knicks. For both his sake and theirs. Coach Woodson is not the right coach for Nate Robinson.

      What do you mean by that? Woodson is a great coach for Nate IMO. (I.E. JR Smith)

    Hold out for more then the minimum Nate, even if you have to sit out half the season until a lot of teams are desperate with hurt players on their roster like Kenyon Martin did. Or similar to how Birdman did. wait if you have too some team will come calling eventually just stay ready.
