Nate Robinson is still shooting his shot.

After news emerged Friday morning that Chicago Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo is sidelined indefinitely with a fractured thumb, the 32-year-old high-flyer campaigned for a reunion on Instagram.

"Y'all know what I bring to the table," he wrote to his former team.

Robinson, who played two games for the New Orleans Pelicans last year, averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 assists in 82 games for Chicago in 2012-13.

The 5'9" dynamo has been campaigning for an NBA comeback all season. He even went to the D-League and played 17 games for the Delaware 87ers.

When asked about potential NBA destinations earlier in the month, Robinson pointed to the Bulls, even before they lost Rondo.

"Playoff teams that could use me right now: The Chicago Bulls for sure, I'm going to say them first because that was one of my favorite places to play," Robinson told For The Win's Nina Mandell. "I was just disappointed they didn't give me a contract that they should have after I helped them get to the playoffs and done everything that I did."

The eighth-seeded Bulls are up 2-0 on the top-seeded Boston Celtics in Round 1 of the playoffs.
