Sources: Nuggets interested in Robinson
By Marc Stein
The market for guard Nate Robinson is likely to expand as free agency approaches its third week, but the identity of at least one suitor for Robinson is clear.
Sources close to the situation said Saturday that the Denver Nuggets have registered their interest in Robinson, who ranks as one of the most attractive free agents still available after his playoff scoring binges for Chicago.
The prospect of a return to Chicago appears increasingly unlikely. Sources say that the reluctance of Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau to bring Robinson back -- with Derrick Rose returning -- is expected to lead Robinson elsewhere.
