According to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, the Cleveland Cavaliers are among a group of teams interested in free agent point guard Nate Robinson. Robinson started the season with the Denver Nuggets and in 33 games, he averaged 5.8 points per game on 34.8 percent shooting. For his career, Robinson is averaging 11.1 points per game.
The Washington Wizards, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers are also reportedly interested in Robinson. He became a free agent when the Nuggets traded him to the Boston Celtics and they subsequently bought him out.

Robinson doesn't fit a need for this Cavaliers team. He's a score-first player and adding him to a group that already features LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and J.R. Smith. Robinson also hasn't been as productive in his return from a torn ACL he suffered last season. If the Cavaliers are interested in finding an upgrade over Matthew Dellavedova at backup point guard Jordan Farmar, a more traditional pass first point guard, is expected to be bought out of his contract with Clippers tonight. That'd make more sense.
