REPORT: Nate Robinson Eyeing Returning To Bulls

With Derrick Rose suffering a season threatening (likely ending) knee injury for the third straight year, the Bulls are looking for a point guard to fill the void.

Who better than the guy that did it back in 2012-13 as Rose recovered from his first ACL injury? Free agent guard Nate Robinson had a career-year playing for the Bulls two seasons ago, and he is reportedly eyeing a return to the Bulls.

Robinson, who is currently working out in Los Angeles, averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 assists per game during his one season with the Bulls. With D Rose out and the buzz for basketball not as high in Chicago, Nate’s heroics re-ignited the city as he led them the Bulls to a fifth place finish in the Eastern Conference and eventually into the second round of the playoffs where they were defeated by the eventual NBA Champion Miami Heat.

Robinson averaged 16.3 points and 4.4 assists per game through through 12 playoff games with the Bulls. However, the Bulls couldn’t workout an offer for the Seattle native to re-sign with the team that summer and he ended up signing with the Denver Nuggets.

The 5-foot-9 guard also suffered a torn ACL in his first season with the Nuggets and in January of this year he was traded to Celtics. After reaching a buyout agreement with the C’s, Robinson is a free agent and is waiting for the right situation.

There is no situation better for Nate right now than the one in Chicago. In his one season there, Nate developed a connection with this city and has been on record expressing how much he misses being there and playing for the Bulls.

Take a look back at his clutch performance against the Nets in Game 4 of the 2013 NBA Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals.
