"Sometimes things are left better a mystery," Nate Robinson told CSNChicago.com late last season. "To not know where you're going to be."

But even having that mindset going into free agency, it's still almost unfathomable that after his postseason heroics and arguably his best season in the NBA, the diminutive scorer doesn't know where he'll be playing next season.

Hopefully, by the time you read this, reports of Robinson inking a deal will have surfaced. But as of right now, a player who seemed destined to garner some combination of a multi-year contract, a substantial raise from his salary last season or a much more prominent role is still unemployed.

No, it doesn't make a lot of sense for Robinson to return to Chicago. For one, he should believe that he deserves more than the veteran's minimum that the Bulls could offer him-or have already offered, according to various media accounts.
