Rumors are circulating that it will be just a one year contract for the veteran minimum. This is not official yet but many estimate that is what his market will bring. He is a backup guard and will most likely see roles as both in the shooting guard capacity and on the point. However, the point guard role is currently a log-jam. The Bulls have Derrick Rose, Kirk Hinrich, and Marquis Teague all currently listed on their depth chart.
His role as a veteran on the team will provide leadership and depth. As a player coming off the bench last season for the Warriors he averaged 11.2 points and 4.5 assists per game on 23.4 minutes a game.
One fan has already given a look at what Robinson will look like in a Bulls jersey:
The deal should be finalized soon and Robinson will join his fifth NBA team in his career; New York Knicks, Boston Celtics, Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, and now the Chicago Bulls.
