Bulls rumors: Nate Robinson unlikely to return

The Chicago Bulls signed guard Nate Robinson to a one-year free agent contract for the league minimum prior to last season. Robinson developed into a consistent scorer and shot creator for Chicago, and he became a fan favorite. While Robinson has said he’d like to return with the Bulls, and the team isn’t ruling anything out, Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago believes that the undersized scorer is likely to be playing elsewhere next season.

With Derrick Rose missing the season due to injury and Kirk Hinrich also plagued by several different ailments throughout the year, Robinson became one of the Bulls’ top scoring options. He turned in his best season, showcasing his abilities into the playoffs.

Considering the Bulls expect to get Rose and Hinrich back healthy next season, and with up-and-comer Marquis Teague on the roster, Sam believes it will be hard for Chicago to fit Robinson in.

Beyond making room on the roster, Robinson’s performance will command more of a commitment than one-year at the minimum. Considering the market for guards is relatively weak, some team could offer Robinson a lucrative multi-year deal. It’s hard to see the Bulls matching offers if they get too substantial.

  1. The Bulls will probably do what they always do. Try and make superstars out of mediocre players. There's a lot of moving around this organization can do to keep Robinson and they know it.
