Though he has been in the league for many years, Nate Robinson really made a name for himself when he put the shorthanded Bulls on his back during their playoff run last season.  Now a free agent Robinson has found himself without a team due to a slightly crowded backcourt (return of Rose) and his disagreements with coach Tom Thibodeau.  Still Robinson would be a good pickup for several teams looking for additional scoring and apparently the Nuggets and Knicks are interested.  Read more after the jump.

Marc Stein of ESPN had the Denver news.

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.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News tweeted this.

Knicks reached out to Nate Robinson a few days ago, source tells the Daily News. Lil Him, however, is looking for more than the vet minimum.

While Robinson is seeking more than the vet minimum and has made a case for it, whether or not he’ll get it is another story.  Robinson’s volatile behavior isn’t forgotten as well as his defensive issues.  He averaged 13.2 points and 4.4 assists per game last season for the Bulls.  We’ll have to see who’s willing to take the chance on him and how much they’re willing to pay.
