Nate Robinson, who played for the Golden State Warriors last season, is expected to sign with the Chicago Bulls, his agent tells Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick. Aaron Goodwin, who represents Robinson, told Amick that only "unforeseen problems" will hold up Robinson's eventual new destination.
Robinson is known for being undersized, trigger-happy and tough to coach, but he had a strong year for the Warriors last season. He averaged 23.4 minutes per game after being buried on the bench in previous stints with the Celtics and Thunder, and he averaged 11.2 points per game while shooting over 42 percent from the field.
Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau would likely use Robinson to play some point guard with Derrick Rose sidelined for much of the season with a torn ACL. The Bulls also have Kirk Hinrich and rookie Marquis Teague on the roster.
