Chicago Bulls Offer Nate Robinson League Minimum


Even though the door appears to be closing, there still is a slim chance that free agent point guard Nate Robinson could return to the Chicago Bulls for the 2013-2014 season.

NBA Insider Alex Kennedy tweeted the following on Thursday morning.

The Chicago Bulls have one more spot to fill on their bench, however, the best they can offer is the league minimum.

That likely will not be enough to convince Robinson to return to the Bulls after a season in where the point guard was one of the main reasons for the team’s playoff run.

With the Bulls last season, Robinson averaged 13.1 points per game while emerging as the team’s starting point guard in place of the injured Derrick Rose and Kirk Hinrich towards the end of the season.

Robinson has received interest as a free agent and it appears that the guard likely will receive the lucrative deal that he is seeking.

On the chance that Robinson doesn’t, one could conclude that he would be welcomed back on the Bulls assuming the guard would be willing to accept the league minimum.
