The Chicago Bulls are expected to sign point guard Nate Robinson, his agent, Aaron Goodwin, told SI.com.

The deal, which Goodwin said should be finalized "barring unforeseen problems," will likely pay the eight-year veteran the veteran's minimum of $1.2 million for next season. Robinson, who regained his form as a reserve for Golden State last season after playing just four games in the second half of the 2010-11 campaign with Oklahoma City, will join veteran point guard Kirk Hinrich in the Bulls' Derrick Rose-less backcourt after his recent return. Hinrich, who signed a two-year, $8 million deal last week with the Bulls, spent his first seven seasons in Chicago before he was traded to Washington in June 2010 and later traded to Atlanta in Feb. 2011.

None of which fill the huge void left by Rose, the 2010-11 MVP who tore his ACL in Game 1 of the first-round against Philadelphia on April 28 and, according to the Chicago Tribune, is likely out until March. Still, Robinson will provide some offensive punch for a team that now needs all the help it can get.

Robinson, the 5-foot-9 guard who is still best known for his three All-Star Slam Dunk Contest championships, averaged 11.2 points (42.4 percent shooting overall), 23.5 minutes, 1.2 steals and a career-high 4.5 assists per game with Golden State last season. If the signing does indeed take place, this will be the 28-year-old's fifth team since the 2009-10 campaign after he played previously with New York, Boston, Oklahoma City, and the Warriors.
