SPORTS: PELICANS RELEASE VETERAN POINT GUARD NATE ROBINSON

The veteran point guard Nate Robinson has officially been released by the New Orleans Pelicans.

After playing only two games with the Pelicans, the team website released the news about Robinson Thursday morning:

The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that the team has waived guard Nate Robinson.

Robinson, 5-9, 180, appeared in two games for New Orleans, averaging 2.0 assists and 0.5 steals. Originally signed by the Pelicans on Oct. 16, Robinson appeared in four preseason games, averaging 8.8 points and 2.5 assists.

New Orleans’ roster now stands at 14.

Robinson, 31, has been in the NBA for 10 seasons and will now be looking for a new team to play in. Robinson made a name for himself in the league playing in the New York Knicks in 2005-2010 and later jumped around from team to team since then.

Plagued by an ACL problem, Robinson underwent surgery in 2014 which has resulted in the loss of his quick speed and explosiveness.
