Five-foot-seven Nate Robinson, the new star of the 2013 NBA playoffs, arrived in Oklahoma City as part of the Kendrick Perkins trade on Feb. 24, 2011.
Robinson played only four games and 30 minutes for the Thunder. In the playoffs, Robinson played three games and 12 minutes. His only meaningful playing time came in Game 1 of the West finals against Dallas, when early in the fourth quarter OKC led 97-83, and Scotty Brooks tried to ignite a rally with Robinson. But Robinson missed three shots, went back to the bench and the Thunder lost 121-112.
Once the lockout was over in November 2011, the Thunder basically had no use for Robinson, and despite a year remaining on his contract, the Thunder and Robinson negotiated a buyout. Robinson’s agent, Aaron Goodwin, told The Oklahoman, “They don’t plan on using him in their rotation, and we wanted to see if we could find a better opportunity somewhere else.”
Robinson signed with the Warriors and played 51 games, starting nine, and averaged 11.2 point a game, which is close to his career scoring average of 11.5.
