by January 03, 2012

After being bought out by the Thunder, free agent guard Nate Robinson appears to be close to signing a deal with the Golden State Warriors. The energetic Robinson was said to have drawn interest from a handful of teams, but Bay Area News Group Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson reports today: “Warriors are close to signing free agent guard Nate Robinson, multiple sources confirmed. Robinson could sign as soon as Wednesday and join the team Friday in Los Angeles. The sixth year guard started last season with Boston, appearing in 55 games and averaging 7.1 points in 17.9 minutes. But he was traded to Oklahoma City, where he totaled just 30 minutes in four appearances. For his career, Robinson averages 11.3 points in 23 minutes. He gained national fame by winning two slam dunk contests at 5-foot-9.”
