Nate Robinson To Play In Lebanon

Former NBA player Nate Robinson will continue his playing career overseas, per Emiliano Carchia of Sportando. According to Carchia, Robinson penned a deal with Homenetmen of the Lebanese Basketball League.

Robinson, a late first-round selection in the 2005 NBA Draft, spent his first five seasons with the Knicks before becoming a journeyman during the back half of his NBA career. From 2010 to 2015 he played for seven additional NBA franchises and in 2016, he signed his first contract overseas with Hapoel Tel Aviv of the Israeli Premier League.

The 5’9” point guard, perhaps best known for being a three-time NBA Slam Dunk Contest champion from 2006 to 2010, said as recently as December that he is still looking for an opportunity to return to the NBA, but for now, he’ll have to settle for a chance to showcase his ability in Lebanon.

Robinson, 34, holds NBA averages of 11.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game in 618 career contests with a career shooting line of .463/.360/.796.

    • Beautiful country, wonderful people and incredible food. He’s earned enough money – this is a way to travel and see the world.

            • I don’t get it. I wasn’t being funny.
              Lebanon is an amazing place. Stunning in every way imaginable.
              If my profession allowed me to earn millions in the first ten years of my career, and then the next five were posts around some of the world’s best places, I’d be very happy.
              I forget that most participants on this page are American, and that only a small percentage of you have passports. Of that number, less than 5% visit the Middle East or Africa. Open world view? Doesn’t look like it.
              Don’t believe your media.
