Nate Robinson waived by New Orleans
The Pelicans have officially waived Nate Robinson.
In what seems to be a bit of a surprise move, or at least a sooner than expected move, the Pelicans have let Robinson go. In the two games this season Robinson averaged no points or rebound, two assists, and .5 steals in 11.5 minutes. He ran into early foul trouble in the season opener which left the door open for new acquisition Ish Smith to display his worth. Unfortunately for Robinson, Smith played quite well and ended up grabbing the lion's share of minutes for both games. Robinson should now be dropped in all leagues but monitored to see if another team in need of a point guard picks him up. Smith is now a more valuable add as he currently only has to give way to Jrue Holiday who is on a 20 minute playing restriction.
