According to a source familiar with the situation, Robinson and his camp have already made it clear with the Bulls that the two sides will part ways, as Robinson seeks a multi-year contract. Even if that contract isn’t made available to the point guard, a one-year deal with a team that will give him extended playing time is next on his wish list. Chicago Sun-Times

"You have to look at all the aspects of what we're doing, where we are salary-cap wise, what the market calls for," Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said. Nate had a great year. So we'll evaluate it moving forward. "The thing is about Nate, and again I thought he had a very good year, but in the last month and a half I thought he and Kirk played extremely well together, and Nate was more at the two. I like that versatility, so I wouldn't rule anything out," he continued, implying that Robinson could play off the ball more alongside Rose, who has enough size to defend some shooting guards, or off the bench in tandem with Hinrich. "He's going to have opportunities, so a lot of it is going to be fit and what the market calls for." CSN Chicago

Guard Nate Robinson wants to return to the Chicago Bulls next season, but he isn't sure if the team will have enough cap space to keep him. "I would love to (come back)," said Robinson, whose Bulls were eliminated by the Miami Heat on Wednesday. "Honestly, I really would. But knowing the guys that we have here, I know it's probably limited space for me, but we'll see how it goes. (I'll) talk to my agent and stuff like that and figure out what's the best plan for me. God has blessed me this far [to] continue to play the game that I love. I love this team, I love these guys, and if I could stay here it would be wonderful." ESPN.com

After such a season of thrills, Nate Robinson's likely final home game as a Bull featured him missing all 12 shots with four turnovers. He is the just third player in the last 26 years to miss all 12 or more shots in a playoff game. "Nate's a tough guy," Thibodeau said. "He'll bounce back." Chicago Tribune

After carrying the Bulls for weeks, Robinson finally crumbled under the weight of the offensive burden. Remember how hot he was in the triple-overtime win against Nets? Robinson met the other extreme in likely his final appearance on the same floor, going 0-for-12 with four turnovers. Criticize Robinson for an awful game, but remember he also represents the main reason the Bulls still are playing. "I just didn't make no shots,'' Robinson said, icing his injured shoulder. "We have another crack at it. You never know. I might go 12-for-12.'' Chicago Tribune

Mohammed said he'd be "shocked" if his shove of the Heat's LeBron James that led to Mohammed's second- quarter ejection Friday draws a suspension. The Bulls felt James embellished Mohammed's shove, with Thibodeau even calling it a flop. "Nazr is a quiet guy. My father always told me the quiet ones are who you have to worry about," Nate Robinson said of Mohammed's toughness. "I wouldn't put it past Nazr to move him out. Nazr is a great guy."
