During the much publicized absence of Derrick Rose throughout the 2012-13 regular season, other players had to step up for the Chicago Bulls. One of those players happened to be Nate Robinson.
Robinson averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 assists per game during Rose’s absence. However, the 10-year veteran still has yet found a home for next season.
On that front, ESPN’s Marc Stein is reporting that the Denver Nuggets have expressed “certifiable interest in trying to sing” free agent guard Nate Robinson. At this point, it’s unclear on what the terms of the deal will (potentially) be.
A return to Chicago, even after Nate's playoff heroics, appears unlikely in the extreme given reservations of Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau

BOSTON SHOPPING WALLACE AND HUMPHRIES?
Technically, the Boston Celtics officially announced their blockbuster trade that sent Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett — among others — to Brooklyn yesterday.
Now, they are, reportedly, shopping what they got in return from the Nets — Gerald Wallace and Kris Humphries.
At least, according to Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.
CSNNE Celtics insider Sherrod Blakely has learned that the team may be looking to deal those two. Wallace has three years left on his contract, while Humphries has only one year left on his.
The Celtics currently have more players than they can keep on the active roster, thus the possibility of trades.
