KUSA - Denver Nuggets forward Nate Robinson has been an NBA journeyman every year since 2010. After leaving the New York Knicks, he spent time with the Boston Celtics, Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors and Chicago Bulls. This fall, for a change, he's staying with the same team for a second straight year.
Nuggets GM Tim Connelly announced Monday that Robinson has exercised his $2.1 million contract option for the 2014-15 season. Connelly also announced forward Darrell Arthur has also exercised his option to stay in a Nuggets uniform.
Robinson was signed as a free agent in July of 2013 and averaged 10.4 points and 2.5 assists in 44 games with Denver before suffering a season-ending knee injury on Jan. 29. The 2014-15 season will be his 10th year in the NBA.
Arthur was acquired in a draft-night trade in June of 2013 and averaged 5.9 points and 3.1 rebounds in 68 games with Denver last season. He also made a career-high 24 3-pointers – 19 more than his previous four seasons combined.
