Shaun Livingston vs. Nate Robinson

For awhile now I have been saying the Cavs should resign Shaun Livingston as a back up to Irving. I said this before I started doing my research on draft picks and free agents. To my delight, I saw that Nate Robinson was an unrestricted free agent. That changes everything for me.

I like the way Shaun Livingston has played, but Nate Robinson has been a dynamo. He's part of the reason that the Bulls are in the Playoffs without Derrick Rose. How is his numbers?

12.9 P.P.G.

4.4 A.P.G.

17.53 P.E.R.

Per 48 - 24.7 P.P.G. 8.4 A.P.G and 78% FT

77 games played this year.

A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY FOR THE CAVS!

Robinson has been pretty solid throughout his career but there are some roadblocks. Will Nate come here? He has a history of playing with Playoff teams. The Knicks, the Celtics, the Thunder and now the Bulls with a stop at GS for a year.

The Bulls have a young PG with Marquis Teague and Rose should be back to carry most of the load with Kirk Hinrich.who can play the 1 and the 2.

I think Robinson would be a perfect back up to Irving. He loves the big shot and he's fearless. You can even have Robinson, Irving and Waiters on the floor at the same time which would give teams problems. Here's a video called Hero put together by a Bulls fan.

Will the Bulls try to keep him with Derrick Rose returning? What will they be willing to pay? Nate is looking for a long term contract after these 1 year contracts. He currently makes 1.146 million a year.

What should we offer Nate?

I say 9-11 million over 3 years. 3 million the 1sr 2 years and I would go up to 5 million that 3rd year if that would be a poison pill for the Bulls.

Time to get busy Cavs!
