Robinson will likely see a buy-out and join a contender…

Rondo braced for emotional Celtics return: Point guard returns to TD Garden.
The Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets have swapped back-up guards with Jameer Nelson and Nate Robinson exchanging homes although it is expected to be temporary.
Robinson will be moving to Boston, but reports suggest that he will seek a buyout of his contract with the intention of signing with a playoff contender as he looks to overcome one of the worst scoring stretches of his career.
In contrast, Nelson is believed to be set to stay in Denver as the veteran guard continues to move around the league looking to hopefully find a long-term solution after moving to the Celtics in the deal which took Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks.
Meanwhile, Robinson is coming off the back of an ACL tear and he is averaging a career-low 5.8 points on a career-low 35 percent shooting in 33 games for the Nuggets so far this season.
While he continues to endure a shooting slump, he will hope a switch elsewhere will reinvigorate his game and allows him to make a stunning impact similar to the one he had in Chicago with the Bulls in the 2012/13 season.
Robinson particularly stood up during the playoffs after averaging 16.3 points in 12 playoff games as he provided a big impact off the bench with Derrick Rose sidelined by injury.
It is reported that the Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers are currently interested in acquiring him, but there is no deal imminent.
His departure is the second trade made by the Nuggets this week as they continue to retool the roster with both Arron Afflalo and Randy Foye expected to be next to leave.
