(NEW YORK) — The Denver Nuggets are slowly rebuilding their roster and they’ve now added some scoring punch after signing guard Nate Robinson to a two-year deal. Robinson left the Chicago Bulls to make the deal.
“Chicago will always have a place in my heart I’m a miss all my teammates it was a treat playing along side of all of them all stand up guys,” Robinson tweeted on Monday.
ESPN.com’s Brian Windhorst reported that Robinson’s deal is valued at over $4 million.
Even though Robinson was primarily a backup with the Chicago Bulls this past season, Robinson averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 assists per game. More importantly, Robinson averaged 16.3 points per game during the Bulls’ playoff run this past season in the place of the injured Derrick Rose.
“I know the nba is a Business but when u build friendships with guys on the team it’s hard to say goodbye … Thanks again chitown one love,” Robinson also tweeted.
Robinson will serve as one of the team’s main options off the bench, and perhaps the backup point guard to Ty Lawson. With Robinson, the Nuggets now have six new players, a new head caoch, and a new general manager.
