Report: Thomas Robinson to sign with Nets

Want a top-five pick from the last five years?

Only one is available – Thomas Robinson, who was traded to the Nuggets and then bought out.

So, the Nets — who’ve traded or agreed to swap all their first rounders until 2019 — are pouncing.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

It’s a 10-day deal, according to 

This will be Robinson’s fifth team in three years following stints with the Kings, Rockets, Trail Blazers and Nuggets (for whom he never played). Robinson has disappointed relative to where he was drafted, but he can help a team.

The Nets got a little smaller in the Kevin Garnett-for-Thaddeus Young trade, though Robinson will likely be stuck behind at least Young, Mason Plumlee and Brook Lopez. Still, a little depth could make a difference in Brooklyn’s playoff push.
