Bulls have Talked with Nate Robinson, According to Report

In the wake of Derrick Rose’s latest knee injury, the Chicago Bulls are in the market for another point guard. A familiar face could be brought back to Chicago, as the Bulls have had discussions with free agent Nate Robinson:

Robinson started the year with the Denver Nuggets, but he was traded to the Boston Celtics and subsequently bought out. Robinson has struggled mightily this season after returning from a torn ACL suffered in January 2014, averaging just 5.8 points and 2.3 assists while shooting 34.8 percent overall and 26.1 percent from three.

Robinson likely wouldn’t be anything more than an emergency point guard in Chicago behind Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich (and maybe even E’Twaun Moore), but if the diminutive guard was forced into action, the hope would be that he could recapture some of the magic from his last time with the Bulls. Robinson played a key role on the team in 2012-13 when Rose missed the entire season with his own ACL injury, and the 30-year-old had several great playoff moments that year.

The most memorable, of course, was his explosion against the Brooklyn Nets:

The Bulls are still weighing options for Rose’s surgery, and there remains a chance he returns this season. Even if he does, having another point guard on the roster wouldn’t hurt, and Robinson knows Tom Thibodeau’s system.
