Robinson wants return to Bulls
Nate Robinson made a pitch to return to the Bulls next season, but acknowledged that the odds may be against him.
Robinson was an amazing story this season. He signed a non-guaranteed, minimum-salary contract last July, then ended up being the team’s hero of an improbable playoff run.
He scored 34 points in a triple-overtime win over Brooklyn on April 27, then added 27 points in a surprising Game 1 win at Miami on May 6.
“I would love to (return). Honestly, I really would,” Robinson said in the locker room, an ice bag resting on his right thigh. “Knowing the guys that we have here, I know there’s probably limited space for me, but we’ll see how it goes.
“I love this team. I love these guys and if I could stay here, it would be wonderful.
Asked his immediate plans, Robinson said he’ll go home to Seattle, enjoy time with his kids and wait to see what happens.
