Where to next for Nate Robinson?

John Rohde Published: December 27, 2011

 

Guard Nate Robinson cleared waivers Tuesday, which means anyone can claim the 5-foot-9, 27-year-old, three-time NBA slam dunk champion.

It was no surprise OKC and Robinson parted ways at the outset of training camp earlier this month. Robinson’s me-first attitude didn’t mesh at all with the Thunder. What’s surprising is there has been little, if any, interest in Robinson’s explosive offensive game.

Sam Amick of SI.com tracked down Robinson a few hours after he was waived by the Thunder. Robinson insists he has matured and would not be a headache for the team that took a chance on him.

Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News didn’t think the Knicks will be offering Robinson a return trip to their roster, which turned out to be true. The Knicks signed Jeremy Lin on Tuesday to replace injured rookie Iman Shumpert.

The condensed 66-game schedule figures to take its physical toll, so don’t be surprised if someone eventually offers a roster spot to Robinson to replace an injured player. But under no circumstance will that team be the Thunder.
