He's a stud for sure, but Robinson's price tag might be a little to high for the Warriors in June.
Nate Robinson’s a great story and has emerged as a fan favorite in the Bay Area, but he’ll certainly demand more than the $740,000 he’s making right now if the Dubs want Kryptonate to return next season.
Robinson's numbers are strong for a reserve, averaging 8.7 assists and 22.2 points per 48 minutes, but the Warriors might go with 2011 second-round pick Charles Jenkins as the team's backup floor general going forward. Jenkins will earn a little under $500,000 next season should the club pick up his option for 2012-2013, and if the team wants to pursue top-tier free agents in the summer, returning Robinson might not be on the agenda.
Expect to see Jenkins featured off the bench more often should the Warriors falter down the stretch.
