The Portland Trail Blazers recently traded Thomas Robinson as to Denver as part of a package to acquire Arron Afflalo and Alonzo Gee. The Nuggets placed Robinson on waivers almost immediately. It appears he's found a new home, though. According to Adrian Wojnarwoski of Yahoo Sports, Robinson has reached and agreement with the Brooklyn Nets.

The Nets find themselves short a couple mercurial forwards after declining to re-sign free agent Andre Blatche at the beginning of the season, then trading Kevin Garnett to Minnesota at the trade deadline. Robinson would presumably fill the void.

Brooklyn will be Robinson's 4th stop in his 3-year career. After being drafted 5th overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2012 he was traded to the Houston Rockets midway through his rookie season. He joined the Trail Blazers in the summer of 2013 after Portland offered Houston a clutch of second-round picks. The Blazers traded him to Denver last week.

Robinson is averaging 4.6 points and 4.4 rebounds in 13.5 minutes per game over his NBA career.

Update: It's a 10-day contract, after which Robinson would be eligible for a second 10-day. If the Nets retain him after that, he'd be with them all season, including through the playoffs.
