Good signing for them. Thibs will eat this guy alive though.


Via Sam Amick, Sports Illustrated
Back from vacation & free agency continues: the agent for Nate Robinson, Aaron Goodwin, says the veteran point guard will sign with Chicago today "barring unforeseen problems." Robinson averaged 11.2 points (42.4 percent shooting overall), 23.5 minutes, 1.2 steals and a career-high 4.5 assists per game with Golden State last season.


Aggrey Sam ‏@CSNBullsInsider
On vacation in Cali, but I can confirm that Nate Robinson will be a Bull, per 3 sources with knowledge of the situation.

Tracy "T-Mac" McGrady is working on a deal with the Chicago Bulls (via @dan_bernstein). Speculation is a one-year minimum deal.

T-Mac & Nate Rob on the Bulls, wow. I guess management needed some offensive help.

The words in bold obviously answer your question.

EDIT: I change my mind, Nate might take some time adjusting. Tmac prolly can possibly make a difference if he gets enough PT. He still has some gas in him.

Bulls will be a 7th or 8th seed if lucky and if they faced the Knicks even with Rose healthy they would get destroyed. It would be the same as last year against Philly.

Underrated signings from the Bulls. You get players that can come in and drop 15-20 minutes in the blink of an eye(yes t-mac can still do that if healthy just not consistently). Being the defensive guru that he is he will make things work out. So far the Bulls off-season looks like this.

Out:
Korver
Asik
Brewer
JLIII
Watson

In:
Mohammed
Hinrich
Belinelli
T-Mac
Nate
Radmanovic

They will lose some defense but the offense they gained will outweigh their defensive losses.

Bulls will be top 3 even without Rose they've proven this for the last 2 years. Even with the Heat, Knicks, Celtics and Nets retooling the Bulls are still a top 4 team in the league. They are just too good defensively, thanks to thibs, for other teams to handle.

We could have signed a bag of dog **** and the Bulls forum would try to spin it like it is a good deal.

99 percent of them were against T-Mac coming to the Bulls. Watch how many flip flop and defend it once it becomes official.

They did the same thing with Omer Asik. When Houston offered him the contract everyone on the forum said no way we should match. Then the rumor came out that we would match and all of a sudden every started saying it makes sense to match. Then when the official word came out that we wouldn't match everyone was back on the no way we should match thing again.

I'm not really a fan of either Nate or McGrady. I guess offensively, they will help.

And for those of you saying that these guys aren't Thibs guys. Both guys have played for Thibs. Nate when he was in Boston, and McGrady when he was in Houston. Thibs liked both guys. So I don't think that is really an issue.

He doesn't have to be better than Watson. He isn't replacing Watson. That is what Hinrich was signed for.

I am not a fan of Nate by any means, but he is better than Lucas, which is who is he is replacing.

Yeah, but what difference does that make.

If a guy shoots 30 percent and the other guys shoots 35 percent wouldn't you say the guy who shoots 35 percent is better?

Yeah you would, but that doesn't mean signing the guy who shoots 35 percent is a good idea.

Hinrich will be starting for the majority of the season and nate will be seeing time each game and probably 15-20 min a game...

I'd rather have watson playing those minutes than Nate if both are getting payed the min.

Well to go back to your orginal topic, this is an okay move by the Bulls. He's better than JL3 and he comes cheap.

You do realize, if we kept Watson we would pick up his 4 mil option?

Nate came cheap and besides Hinrich is basically taking Watsons spot last year and Nate is taking JL3 spot.

That would never be the scenario though.

Hinrich was signed to replace Watson. Watson would have been starting in place of Rose if they decided to keep him. Just like when Rose was out last year.

The Bulls decided they wanted Hinrich for that instead of keeping Watson. Hinrich was Watson's replacement. They were never going to be on the team together.

Nate is Lucas' replacement. So that is who he should be compared to. And NAte is better than Lucas.

I have the bulls at the #5 or 6 seed and would love to see them play the knicks in the first round. I think chicago could beat NY in the first round, that would be funny.

This is utter ******** at it's finest. A healthy Bulls team (even with the players we added and lost) would defeat the Knicks in no more than 6 games. IDK why people think the Bulls will fall off due to the departure of Asik and Korver.

As a Warrior fan who saw LIL Nate all last season long. He is a good signing for them. He was no problem in the locker room, so I guess he has his ego in check. He isn't a great defender, but he tries, and we can't forget that he brings energy each and every night! He can also score a lot of points and dish/drive better than most people give him credit for. I will miss him and wish him the best. If we could afford to bring him back, I'm pretty sure we would have. but, with Jack now, Nate is kind of obsolete for us.

Yea the same Knicks that were going to have an epic 7 game first round series with the Heat only to get destroyed so bad Miami actually had to give them a game to spare them a sweep? Get real. The Bulls did well without Rose last year. The Knicks did worse when Melo came back vs. Lin being in there when Melo was hurt. Why can't people think first? :facepalm:

Bulls & Knicks both had 2 key starters hurt last season in the playoffs and both won one playoff game in the 1st round; so we both got "spared" a game huh. Ok bulls won 2 games I guess but not much improvement when you get bounced by an 8th seed.

While I will agree the Bulls and Knicks were not 100% the Bulls lost their two most important pieces in that series, that and Philly matches up pretty decently against us, that said I can't wait to see the East this year I actually think the Nets are pretty overrated but can't wait to see them regardless

Wow, most of you guys don't understand the game. Whether we make the playoffs or not, it won't matter bc we wont win the championship. Winning the 'ship is the whole damn point of the game!!! If we can't win the 'ship, then it's a fail. If someone is going to tell me our current roster, including Nate and some reports saying Tmac, is going to dethrone Miami, then you should be banned. Picking up Nate or Tmac can steal minutes away from Teague and butler which could be used for development into the '13-'14 season when we have a healthy rose back. Bulls fans need to stop making threads about irrelevant acquisitions when we all know this next upcoming season is a loss.

As much as i dislike Nate & T-mac i'll spare the negative comments. If Thibs can discipline both and make them fit within his system then perhaps it could work out (still highly skeptical). JUst really disappointing to see Chicago kind of regress and deep playoff hopes diminish after Rose's horrible injury.

Well I can understand that.

If the Bulls kept him it would have cost them 3.2 million. BTW, I also wrote it down that you said they won't make the playoffs. If they do you have to promise to never post on this forum again. Deal??? Cool.

Just read my sig lol. :facepalm: just straight up hating.

He's just a troll. I love it though, Nets will be a major disappointment for all those "fans" that have suddenly come out of no where.

I'm a big fan of Nate, even though I'm a Knicks fan I'll wish him the best in chi. No one in IMO, plays with more passion than him. He might be hard headed but he leaves it all on the court.

Nate played for Thib in Boston as an assistant. He'll be fine, he's an energy guy off the bench, not much better or worse than Watson who went to the Nets. This is a good signing, I loved Nate in NY and I want to see him do well. Also the T-Mac signing is a good one.

Nate will always be that Love/Hate player but he'll be solid in Chicago. Nothing more, nothing less really.

You can blow it up from the inside by appearing to make moves to bolster your team by adding ego maniacs to the fold.

Good signings.

Nate may or may have not changed in Boston. Was Nate wild at times with the Knicks? Sure. It was blown way out of proportion, and of course people said he matured with the veterans on the Celtics, even though he was the same energy type of player who went wild sometimes, but was still good, just as he was on the Knicks.

Hopefully T-Mac gets some good playing time if healthy. It'd be a shame if he doesn't get a chance to show what he still has by letting letting the younger players develop just because of his past injuries. Not that younger players developing is a bad thing, but T-Mac when healthy should still get the playing time just as much as the vets his age and older are getting.

I think most of you are underestimating Thib's ability to keep guys under control as a coach.

When did the Bulls **** in Nets fans cheerios? Seems like every Bulls thread is filled with Nets fans talking ****. At least wait until your team has 30 wins before talking. Never know what will happen in Basketball.

Looks like the bulls are getting very close to a hard cap if they sign nate and kirk is getting 3.9 his first year.

What was a prestigious defense first team last season is turning into the Antione Walker Mavericks.

Kind of sad.

People are acting like Thibs hasn't coached Nate before. Besides with this squad they'll be able to get a pick in the middle of the first round and give them some more talent. Also fans outside of PSD love nate so that'd be good for the franchise to keep their fans even if the bulls hit a rough streak.

FYI thibs was an assistant when Nate was with Boston so they are familiar with each other.

Bulls wont make the playoffs you can write it down.

:rolleyes: People like you on here have been proven wrong by Bulls fans ALL THE TIME and have NEVER BEEN RIGHT of the outcome(results of the future). There's a 100% chance that you're dead wrong and a 0% chance you're right. If your life was on the line about the Bulls not making it to the playoffs your life would have an experation date on it and it expires when the Bulls clinch an playoff birth.

Exactly why Thibs is the coach of the year. He just makes his players better.

noone is hating Brooklyn. we are all just waiting for the next sig-worthy quote from DMF.

They are the better team. And yes, i know they are better than the Knicks. When Rose comes back, they are going to be scary.
