The Warriors officially announced the signing of guard Nate Robinson before Wednesday’s tipoff atSan Antonio. He is expected to join the team in time for Thursday’s practice in Los Angeles.
Robinson, who took his physical Wednesday inOakland, gets a one-year deal worth about $1 million. He could be available for Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers, depending on how coach Mark Jackson feels after seeing him in practice.
No doubt, Robinson will need to get in game shape. He’s been training in Seattle waiting to be signed.
Robinson, 27, played for Boston and Oklahoma City last season. With the Celtics, he appeared in 55 games, averaging 7.1 points in 17.9 minutes. In 11 starts with Boston, he averaged 12.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 33.2 minutes.
Robinson was traded to the Thunder in the Kendrick Perkins deal on Feb. 24. He appeared in four regular season games and three postseason games for the Thunder, mostly garbage minutes. He was waived by the Oklahoma City Thunder on Christmas Eve.
