I hate to say it, but Nate Robinson actually makes some sense for both parties.
Robinson would remain relevant in New York, while the Knicks can grab some instant offense without having to empty their wallet.
We saw during these NBA playoffs what Robinson is capable of. Though his production comes in spurts, that's all New York would need.
As a seventh or eighth man off the bench, Robinson would provide that spark that J.R. Smith has been giving them.
Remember, the last time he was a Knick, Robinson was a top offensive option. Now, he'd be used in a limited role where he can't shoot his team out of a game.
Again, the Knicks don't have much flexibility here. Robinson is a guy they might be able to afford if another team doesn't hand him a long-term deal.
