Free-agent point guard Nate Robinson has interest in joining the Bulls, USA Today Sports reports.

Robinson averaged 5.8 points and 2.3 assists in 33 games with the Nuggets before being traded to the Celtics, who waived the point guard. He spent the entire 2012-13 season with the Bulls and received significant playing time, as Rose missed the entire season while recovering from a torn ACL. Robinson averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 assists in his only season in Chicago while playing all 82 games.

The Bulls announced Tuesday that point guard Derrick Rose will require surgery after suffering a medial meniscus tear in his right knee for the second time in two seasons.
