Are New York Knicks Targeting Nate Robinson?

Could the New York Knicks be in the running to sign Robinson as a free-agent this summer?



    Nate Robinson became one of the most talked-about players in the NBA after his playoff performances against the Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat. The unrestricted free-agent this summer made himself a lot of money with both his postseason and regular season performances and the diminutive guard is on the radar of a number of teams, including a former employer of his.

    The New York Knicks are rumored to be interested in Robinson’s services according to Bleacher Report, and a comment made by Robinson’s agent, Aaron Goodwin suggests interest on both sides if the 5-9 guard doesn’t remain in Chicago.

    “Nate's first thought would be to remain with the Bulls, but if the Knicks' opportunity presented itself, I am sure he would appreciate an opportunity to play in New York again,” said Goodwin.

    The Knicks already have a dynamic scoring option off the bench in JR Smith who was named the NBA’s 6th Man of the Year, but his reputation took a hit during the playoffs as it was rumored he spent a number of nights out drinking and partying with pop superstar Rihanna, which raised questions about his commitment to the game of basketball and the New York Knicks.

    Smith had a $2.9 million player option with New York which he declined, making him an unrestricted free-agent, like Robinson.
