The Brooklyn Nets have signed journeyman Thomas Robinson, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Robinson, who has bounced around the league since being drafted in the lottery only a few years ago, comes over from the Denver Nuggets, who waived the forward after acquiring him in a trade deadline deal that involved Arron Afflalo. Robinson never played a game in Denver.
The former Kansas Jayhawk has already played for five organizations now, including Brooklyn. The Sacramento Kings drafted him, but traded him to the Houston Rockets during his rookie season. Houston quickly flipped him to Portland. Then Denver. Now, hipster central.
Robinson is so used to switching teams, it’s no wonder how he was able to become the first reporter to beat Woj to an actual story.
All thanks to GOD ! Thank you Brooklyn

Thomas Robinson, future reporting stud.
The 23-year-old will only sign a 10-day contract, per Wojnarowski, meaning the Nets’ pursuit of other free agent forwards or wings isn’t necessarily over. The Andray Blatche rumors can continue to swirl, even if they’re doing so just a little quieter with Robinson temporarily filling up the final roster spot.
The Nets were quite high on Robinson coming out of college, per Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News. Robinson was the fifth overall pick in 2012. The sixth pick would’ve belonged to Brooklyn had it not traded the selection to the Trail Blazers in a deal for the since departed Gerald Wallace.
