The Denver Nuggets just quickened an already speedy backcourt by bringing in Nate Robinson.
The 5-foot-9 veteran point guard out of Seattle’s Rainier Beach High and the University of Washington 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 as well.
The Denver Post first reported the deal.
Robinson averaged 13 points a contest for the Chicago Bulls last season.
