According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, the Nuggets will sign Robinson using their bi-annual exception, which is worth a shade over $2 million.
Robinson's deal with Denver will span two years and is worth approximately $4.03 million, per Sam Amick of USA Today. The second year of the deal is a player option.
---End of update---
Entering the dog days of free agency, Nate Robinson still hasn't officially found a home, which is beyond perplexing.
Player X represents the per-36 minute stats for Kevin Martin, who will receive close to $30 million from the Timberwolves over the next four years. Player Y is of course Robinson, who will likely be forced to sign a deal worth at or around the veteran's minimum.
Height plays an issue obviously, but Robinson is being continuously undervalued.
Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago says that there have been nibbles of interest from the Nuggets, Bucks, Wizards and Lakers, in addition to the Bulls. The Knicks also had interest, though they can only offer the veteran's minimum.
Nothing substantial (i.e. beyond the veteran's minimum) has presented itself, leaving Robinson to wallow in unemployment well into free agency.
This is becoming a regrettable reoccurring theme for the veteran, albeit undersized, combo guard, and it's hardly a reflection of how valuable he was to the Bulls come playoff time.
I remain of the mind that Robinson might get a raise, and perhaps even a multi-year deal this time around, though neither of those are guarantees.
No matter the terms, Robinson will realistically be signing for far less than he's actually worth, most likely with a contender.
Things could always change, but don't expect them to.
Prediction: Robinson ends up with the Nuggets
