Local Seattle Washington native, former University of Washington standout and a successful business man in the greater Seattle area, Nate Robinson is looking to make a return to the NBA.
Most of us know of Robinson’s success in the league, from his notorious slam dunks, quickness, speed, ball handling skills, 3-point shooting expertise and of course his height. It takes more heart then height for Nate Robinson to be successful athlete.
The Philadelphia 76ers are looking to upgrade their point guard rotation, and to add more scoring for their team. It appears they are looking at a wide variety of guards who can fit into their 15th man roster.
According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sixers are scouting point guards Nate Robinson, Jordan Farmer and Yogi Farrell as potential targets to sign for a 10-day contract and hopefully stay on the team for the remainder of the 2016-2017 NBA season.
With a few of the Sixers starting guards being sidelined due to injuries, only one guard remains healthy.
Robinson has already spent majority of the time in the NBA as a “role” player. At the age of 32, Robinson last played two games with the New Orleans Pelicans last season, before being waived and tried out for the Seattle Seahawks as a wide receiver.
