According to several reports, former Chicago Bulls guard Nate Robinson is set to sign a two-year deal with the Denver Nuggets.
USA Today's Sam Amick first reported the story and has said Denver's bi-annual exception will be used to sign Robinson.
Robinson could earn close to $4 million over the course of the deal if he picks up his player option after the 2013-14 season.
The Seattle, WA. native averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 assists for the Bulls last season. But with Derrick Rose's expected return, a crowded backcourt and salary cap complications prevented the Bulls from retaining him.
CSN Bulls Insider Aggrey Sam recently investigated why a Robinson return to Chicago was unlikely.
