Veteran point guard Nate Robinson is considering an offer from the Sichuan Blue Whales in the Chinese league, a source told international journalist David Pick (Twitter link).
Robinson played for the Clippers last season on a pair of 10-day contracts but they opted not to sign him for the rest of the season because of a left knee injury. The Clippers wound up re-signing Lester Hudson heading into the playoffs because of lingering concerns over Robinson’s sore left knee. Robinson appeared in nine games with the Clippers, averaging 5.1 points and 2.2 assists in 14.0 minutes.
Robinson began last season with the Nuggets and appeared in 33 games before he was traded to the Celtics in January for another veteran point guard, Jameer Nelson. Robinson quickly reached a buyout agreement and was waived by Boston in mid-January.
The 31-year-old Robinson has also played for the Knicks, Warriors, Thunder and Bulls in a career that began during the 2005/06 season.
