DENVER (AP) - The Denver Nuggets just quickened an already speedy backcourt by bringing in Nate Robinson.

The veteran point guard agreed to a two-year deal on Monday, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal hadn't been officially announced.

Robinson joins Ty Lawson to give the Nuggets a tandem that can fly up and down the floor. The addition of Robinson also creates a backlog in the backcourt, with the Nuggets already having up-and-comer Evan Fournier, veteran Andre Miller, rookie Erick Green and newly acquired Randy Foye as well.

The Denver Post first reported the deal.

The 5-foot-9 Robinson averaged 13 points a contest for the Chicago Bulls last season. He stepped up his game in the postseason, scoring 34 points in a triple overtime win in Game 4 against Brooklyn and playing through the flu later in that series.

Soon after reaching his decision, Robinson wrote on his Twitter account that it was a difficult decision to leave the Bulls: ``I know the nba is a Business but when u build friendships with guys on the team it's hard to say goodbye ... Thanks again chitown one love.''

Robinson will be reunited with some familiar faces on the court in the Mile High City. He suited up with Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari when they all played for the New York Knicks, one of five different teams Robinson has played for since being drafted in the first round out of the University of Washington in 2005.

This has been a bustling offseason for a Denver squad that won a franchise-best 57 games only to bow out in the first round for the fourth straight season. The team also brought in a new general manager in Tim Connelly and hired Brian Shaw to take over for George Karl, the NBA Coach of the Year who was ousted.

Then, the Nuggets overhauled their roster as they sent Andre Iguodala, their top perimeter defender, to Golden State in a sign-and-trade deal that also involved Utah and eventually landed Foye in Denver.

Nearly two weeks ago, the Nuggets bolstered their frontcourt by signing free agent forward J.J. Hickson to a three-year deal.

With the addition of Robinson, the team now has six new players on the roster, along with a first-year head coach.
