Oklahoma City is close to completing a buyout of guard Nate Robinson's contract and the seven-year veteran is likely to become a free agent as soon as Saturday morning, a source close to the situation told SI.com.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It’s all caught up with him. And now he’s without a team.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have decided Nate Robinson isn’t worth the hassle, buying-out the controversial but talented combo guard.
Robinson, who can score in bunches, may be hard pressed to find a team, and if he does get a contract he won’t have a major role.
After all, the Thunder, who are one of the best teams in the Western Conference, decided they’re better off without Robinson.
They don’t want the distraction. They don’t want his drama. And they don’t want his shot first approach.
