Clippers could trade Jamal Crawford: Sixth Man of the Year linked with exit.
The Clippers were reportedly interested in the 30-year-old last month ahead of the trade deadline, but after guard Jamal Crawford suffered a right calf contusion earlier this week, they have eventually made their move.
It is unclear at this stage as to how long Crawford will be sidelined for, and so Clippers coach Doc Rivers has opted to bring in cover for the next 10 days with Robinson likely to play a key role off the bench if he can regain both his fitness and form.
Robinson reached a buy-out agreement with the Boston Celtics on January 14 after he was traded by the Denver Nuggets, and he will be on the move yet again as he now hopes to earn an extended stay in Los Angeles having been reunited with Rivers.
Robinson was only averaging 5.8 points per game and just 14.1 minutes with the Nuggets earlier this year, and he has struggled in general after a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to injury last year.
The veteran guard played for Rivers in Boston back in 2009/10 and 2010/11, as he formed a vital part of the Celtics’ impact off the bench on their way to a run to the NBA Finals in 2010.
However, NBA fans will remember him more recently for his heroics for the Chicago Bulls two years ago, when he stepped up in the absence of Derrick Rose to produce countless memorable moments in the playoffs.
