It may be the end of the line for Nate Robinson, who was waived by the Pelicans last week after just two games, including an opening night start against the Warriors. Robinson has relied on his athleticism, but at age 31 he may have lost a step. There are so many guards on the open market that it may be difficult for him to get another NBA job. The Pelicans brought back journeyman point guard Toney Douglas, who had been waived in training camp by the Pacers.

The Pelicans extended Robinson a non-guaranteed contract that is the veteran minimum valued at $1.4 million. Last season, Robinson combined to play 42 games with the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Clippers, averaging 5.7 points and 2.3 assists. The Pelicans like him because he has ability to push the pace in Alvin Gentry’s system and also score. ”He’s an unusual talent for a guy his size and athletic as he is,” Gentry said. ”He can do a lot of things. Obviously with our situation, we felt like lets bring him in and take a look. I think he’s just a really good player. I think he’s shown that in this league.”
