Now that free agency has been active for the last 3 weeks, many teams’ financials are drying up. With a few options left on the board, teams are trying to get a great bargain out of the remaining players in the free agency pool. My eye has been one player this entire time, and now that the cash flow for many teams has dissipated, now is the time for the Knicks to strike for Nate Robinson.
Nate Robinson: New York should try to swoop in and grab “Little Nate” for practically a song and a dance. It is very interesting that after Nate’s spectacular post season he has not received any offers that we are aware of, unless he is demanding a ridiculous amount of money. New York could offer the energetic sweet shooter with a 3-year deal starting at 1.4 million. The 3-year deal will give Nate some security; furthermore NY could also give him a player option after the 1st and 2nd year. This would give him stability and security, but also giving him the opportunity to opt out if he has a productive year after his 1st or 2nd year. This offers him a win-win situation.
Knicks GM Glen Grunwald wants to add another point guard and the club recently reached out to former Knick Nate Robinson, according to a league source. Robinson is not expected to return to the Chicago Bulls because Derrick Rose is now healthy.
Robinson would consider a return to New York but only if he doesn’t receive a more lucrative offer elsewhere. The Knicks can only give him a minimum contract or the mini-mid-level, assuming it is still available.
