CHICAGO (Sporting Alert) — Nate Robinson has agreed terms with the Chicago Bulls or the upcoming NBA season, media reports are claiming.
News media, the Associated Press, reports that the three-time slam dunk champion, who was traded from the Oklahoma City Thunder, where he played just four games last year, to the Golden State Warriors – found good form since the move and the Bulls apparently want him as another cover for the injured Derrick Rose.
Robinson averaged 11.2 points and 4.5 assists for the Warriors last season.
If the reports are indeed true, the 5-foot-9 guard will join the experienced Kirk Hinrich, who also signed with the Chicago Bulls last week.
Hinrich will be in his second stint in Chicago.
The two will bring lots of experience to a Bulls side which is expected to be without star point guard Rose for a large portion of the season as he continues to recover from his knee surgery.
Rose missed a big portion of the shortened campaign for the Bulls last term.
