The Denver Nuggets signed free-agent guard Nate Robinson to a multiyear contract, the team announced Friday.
The 5-foot-9 Robinson has career averages of 11.5 points, 3.0 assists and 2.5 rebounds in eight NBA seasons with the New York Knicks, Boston Celtics, Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors and Chicago Bulls.
Last season, he played a key role for the Bulls when star point guard Derrick Rose missed the entire season after knee surgery. Robinson averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 assists during the regular season and 16.3 points and 4.4 assists during the Bulls' run to the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The 29-year-old Robinson's biggest moment in the playoffs came in Game 4 of the Bulls' first-round series against the Brooklyn Nets when he scored 34 points off the bench in 29 minutes of a triple-overtime win.
"Nate provides a unique combination of speed, scoring, passion and explosiveness," Nuggets general manager and executive vice president of basketball operations Tim Connelly said. "He's proven that he can fit in any system and enjoy success at any tempo."
