Nuggets ink 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. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal hadn’t been officially announced. 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. The Denver Post first reported the deal. The 5-foot-9 Robinson averaged 13 points a contest for the Chicago Bulls last season. He stepped up his game in the postseason, in one game scoring 34 points in a triple overtime win in Game 4 against Brooklyn. – AP
