|Bulls Announce Deal with Robinson
|CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Bulls say they have agreed to a contract with point guard Nate Robinson.
The Bulls announced the deal on Tuesday after reaching an agreement the previous day.
A three-time slam dunk champion, Robinson regained his form with Golden State last season after playing in just four games with Oklahoma City the previous season following a midseason trade from Boston. He averaged 11.2 points and 4.5 assists for the Warriors.
He joins veteran Kirk Hinrich at the position as the Bulls try to get by without Derrick Rose. The 2011 NBA MVP is expected to miss a big portion of the season while recovering from knee surgery.
Hinrich is in his second stint with the Bulls after signing with them last week.
