According to multiple news outlets, Chicago Bulls free-agent Nate Robinson has decided to sign with the Denver Nuggets on a two year deal worth roughly $4 million dollars. The second year on Robinson’s deal is player option.

The Washington Wizards are in need of a scoring punch off the bench and were reportedly very interested in signing Robinson, who could’ve filled that role in the nation’s capital.

Washington has signed point guard Eric Maynor to become John Wall’s new backup. Robinson and Maynor both received bi-annual exceptions from their respective teams.

Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld has been very vague when speaking about Washington’s plans this off-season. Even though the Wizards have filled 14 of their 15 roster spots, it’s clear that they’re still trying to make moves in order to add some depth to the roster. Washington has been plagued with injuries, but since they’ve set their eyes on the playoffs, they need to continue adding more pieces to the roster.

San Antonio Spurs free-agent, DeJuan Blair, has also been linked to the Wizards this off-season. If Washington isn’t done making deals, I’d expect Blair to become the most likely candidate to land with the Wizards.
