Clippers Sign Nate Robinson to a 10-Day Contract

The Los Angeles Clippers announced on Saturday that they have signed guard Nate Robinson to a 10-day contract. Robinson was traded to the Celtics and negotiated a buyout.

He also drew interest from the Chicago Bulls, but it looks as if the Clippers will give the explosive guard a shot. The Seattle native will make his debut with the team on Sunday against the Warriors.

Via ESPN:

“It’s just that we needed another guy and to me he has the most experience,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Saturday. “You know, we’d rather have a 3 or someone like that probably, but when I look at it I don’t really care about positions sometimes. I’d rather get a guy that’s been in the league, can score and has experience.”

“I know Nate. I’ve coached him. So I have a comfort there.”

The Clippers had been interested in Robinson after he became available in January, but the need to add the 30-year-old guard grew after Jamal Crawford was sidelined with a right calf contusion earlier this week. The Clippers are not sure when Crawford will be able to return.

“I just know from last year he was out 10 or 15 days — maybe longer, I think,” Rivers said. “It’s the same injury, so why not bring another guy in until he comes back?”
