Reserve guard Nate Robinson has agreed to sign with the Nuggets for two seasons, a league source confirmed Monday. The source confirmed that the two-year deal is for the bi-annual salary cap exception, which is $4.03 million combined.
Robinson, 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, averaged 13.1 points, 4.4 assists and 24.4 minutes in 82 games last season with the Chicago Bulls. He made 141-of-348 (.405) 3-point attempts last season, which would rank higher than only two Nuggets — Wilson Chandler (.413) and Evan Fournier (.407) — who made more than 50 attempts in 2012-13.
With the Bulls last season, Robinson made waves with a 23-point fourth quarter against the Nets in the playoffs, on his way to 34 in that game. At the 2010 all-star weekend, Robinson became the first three-time slam dunk contest winner. He also won in 2006 and '09.
