Report: Nets, Thomas Robinson agree to two-year deal

Friday July 3rd, 2015

The Brooklyn Nets and forward Thomas Robinson have agreed to a two-year deal, reports Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders. 

The second year contains a player option, according to Kennedy. Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today reports that Robinson's deal is worth about $3 million and says the forward will have an opportunity to crack the Nets' rotation. 

Robinson averaged 5.7 points and 5.6 rebounds last season in time split between the Portland Trail Blazers and Philadelphia 76ers. After being traded to the Denver Nuggets in February, he was waived and later claimed by the 76ers. 

In his 22 games with Philadelphia, the 24-year-old averaged 8.8 points and 7.7 rebounds.
