The Denver Nuggets and Boston Celtics traded reserve point guards on Tuesday, according to reports.

Nate Robinson is headed back to Boston and Jameer Nelson is going to Denver in the deal.

The 30-year-old Robinson has struggled this season after returning from an ACL injury, averaging a career-low 5.8 points and shooting 35 percent from the field in 33 games for the Nuggets.

His stay in Boston could be short, though. He’s expected to seek a contract buyout in order to hook up with a playoff team. Possible destinations for Robinson could include the Los Angeles Clippers and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Robinson played 81 games for the Celtics in 2010 and 2011.

Nelson came to the Celtics as part of the trade for Rajon Rondo and played in just six games for Boston. In 29 games with the Dallas Mavericks and the Celtics this season, he is averaging a career-worst 6.8 points and shooting just 34 percent from the field.
