Found December 21, 2012 on Beyond The Buzzer:
Veteran Kirk Hinrich and rookie Marquis Teague have contracts that extend beyond the season. If the Bulls retained Robinson, the roster would include four players who primarily play point guard when Rose returns. “Right now I’m here doing everything they ask, and hopefully that’s good enough,” Robinson said. “If not, then I’ve got to work harder. Life’s not guaranteed.  Look at all the tragedy that’s happening in the world right now.  But for me, just live day to day.  Like I said, if ti comes and I get the guaranteed contract, I’ll be happy, and if not, I’ll keep pushing.  I’m not going to drop my head or nothing.” via Chicago Sun-Times
