Stone does not have enough offense to be a SG, and is known as a "big PG"

They're all PGs
Stone isn't being signed (failed physical).

If we get Robinson, our rotation would be:

Lowry/ Robinson/ Buycks

Agreed. In fact it might be one of the best rotations we've ever had. Toughness, defense and shot making ability.........with some balls.

We keep this up maybe we should rename the team the Toronto Pitbulls (ironic since they're banned in this city). lol

According to Alex Kennedy the lakers, mavs, bucks, wizards and nuggets are also interested. He made no mention of us even wanting him. To be honest I wonder how good of a source this guy is.

I have never wanted to have the season start earlier than now.

Report: Nuggets interested in free agent Nate Robinson - CBSSports.com

Quote:
The Nuggets appear to be filling in the gaps of their roster after their front office, coaching and roster upheaval this summer by going for ... um ... value. With Andre Iguodala off to Golden State, and Corey Brewer on his way to Minnesota, the Nuggets have a little bit of space to pursue some guys.

And backcourt is apparently where they're targeting. To review, here's the Nuggets' current backcourt formation:

Ty Lawson, Andre Miller, newly-signed Randy Foye, Evan Fournier, Erick Green and Quincy Miller if you want to throw him in.

Now ESPN reports that the Nuggets are pursuing Bulls free-agent point guard Nate Robinson.

So you would have to think the Nuggets will move Miller if this happens. There's just no room for Lawson, Foye, NateRob and Miller on the team, especially with Miller's attitude and the seemingly rebuilding effort in place.

Robinson would provide a perimeter scorer off the bench who can create his own shot, something the Nuggets struggled with last season, and seemingly at a discount. Of course, the quality of those shots is always the question with Robinson. The real value might be his eternally optimistic attitude, however. We'll see if the Nuggets take the plunge on the diminutive scorer and if that leads to even more changes to a team in flux.
So maybe we can land Miller. Send them Kleiza or something.

Just wondering do you guys actually trust this source? I've never seen any other writer mention the Raptors going after him so I find it hard to believe. But maybe you guys know this guy because I really don't.

I wouldn't mind Nate here but I imagine he'd want to go to a better team and other teams can outbid the raps, so yeah.

There is no credible source linking us to Nate Robinson. We cannot afford him as is anyway.

This entire thread is pure speculation.

Considering the word "Rumor" in the title I thought that was implied.
