Robinson replaces just-waived Anderson
NEW YORK -- Change continues to be the rule for New York Knicks president Isiah Thomas.
Robinson replaces swingman Shandon Anderson, who was waived by the Knicks on Wednesday with three years and $23.7 million left on his contract.
The Bulls agreed to buy out the remaining two years of Robinson's five-year contract at a cost of $10 million, making the swingman a free agent.
It is believed the Knicks signed Robinson for $1.3 million, the rest of their mid-level exception.
The reported move caps a bizarre week for Thomas, who admitted to forcing the resignation of assistant coach Dick Helm and promoted Brendan Suhr to the position on Monday and then waived Anderson on Wednesday.
Since taking over as Knicks president in December, Thomas has fired coach Don Chaney, hired Lenny Wilkens as his successor, acquired guard Stephon Marbury and virtually overhauled the roster. Only Allan Houston, Kurt Thomas and Mike Sweetney have survived Thomas' widespread changes.
Limited to just 29 games in his first season with the Bulls due to a toe fracture and a groin strain, Robinson averaged more than 57 over the last two years despite recording 27 DNPs due to decisions by coaches Bill Cartwright and Scott Skiles last year.
In his three seasons with Chicago, Robinson averaged 6.7 points and 2.7 rebounds in 144 games. He spent his first two years with the Charlotte Hornets.
