NBA free agency rumors 2016: Ex-slam dunk champ Nate Robinson wants to return

Truly, the 2016 National Basketball Association (NBA) off-season is a time for planned returns as another prominent name joins the list of players aiming to see action again in the league, and this time, it is three-time slam dunk champion Nate Robinson. 

Recently, Robinson shared his desire of again receiving an opportunity. 

The last time Robinson played in the NBA was during the previous season for the New Orleans Pelicans. Unfortunately, he only appeared in the team's first two regular season games before being waived.

Robinson then continued his career earlier this year in Israel before he tried his luck in football last July by working out for the Seattle Seahawks. 

Before Robinson's quick stint with the Pelicans, he played for a number of teams in the NBA. It all began with the New York Knicks, followed by the Boston Celtics, Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, Chicago Bulls, Denver Nuggets, and the Los Angeles Clippers. 

Despite being known as a dunker, Robinson had a good all-around game when he was still in the NBA. Currently, he has career-averages of 11 points, 2.3 rebounds, with three assists per game. 

But even if Robinson has a great resume, it is uncertain as of the moment if any team will be interested in him especially with how his last two seasons went, although franchises seeking for a point guard may see Robinson as the answer to their problem.

One team that needs a player at the no. 1 position is the Sacramento Kings. 

The Kings only have Darren Collison after Rajon Rondo left in free agency to sign with the Chicago Bulls.

Sacramento could grant Robinson a veteran's minimum contract, which is perhaps the best deal any team can give him right now.

As of the moment, Robinson remains available on the market, and with training camps nearing, he might soon get what he wants.
