Pacers Sign Glenn Robinson III

MONDAY, 2:02pm: The deal is official, the team announced.

“Glenn comes to us with a set of skills we think will blend in with our team,” said Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird. “We expect him to be very good on the defensive end and he can score the ball. We look forward to seeing him improve throughout the year.”

SATURDAY, 11:48am: Glenn Robinson III has agreed to a three-year contract with the Pacers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Agents Austin Brown and Aaron Mintz of CAA informed Wojnarowski of the agreement.

Robinson, 21, became an unrestricted free agent after the Sixers declined to make him a qualifying offer. The 6’7” swingman appeared in 35 games last season. He averaged 1.2 points in 25 games for the Timberwolves, who waived him in March. He averaged 4.4 points in 10 games after the Sixers claimed him.

The Pacers still have some cap space left even with the addition of Robinson III because they have yet to make their deal with Lavoy Allen official, former Nets executive Bobby Marks tweets.

Robinson will have to fight for playing time at the wing positions with Paul George, Monta Ellis, Chase Budinger, Solomon Hill and C.J. Miles.

Robinson declared for 2014 draft after his sophomore season with the University of Michigan and was taken with the 40th overall pick by Minnesota.

    Chris Copeland signed with the Bucks

      Nice catch T-Lee. He was still listed on the Pacers roster I was looking at when doing the post. It’s been fixed.

    They’ve had a very nice offseason. I like how they turned over the roster, and how they got younger in some areas, as well as adding depth

    • Dana Gauruder

      Yes, it’s clear the Pacers are not content with just having George back at full strength next season. Getting rid of Hibbert’s contract was a bonus and Monta Elllis was an interesting addition alongside Hill in the backcourt.

        I would only question their depth at the 4 behind Paul George…How do you think things will play out in that backcourt? They have a lot of combo guards

        • Dana Gauruder

          Seems like they are banking on one of the rookies (Turner, Christmas) to emerge as a rotation piece with Allen as insurance. I figure most of the backcourt minutes will be eaten up by Hill, Ellis and Stuckey with Miles getting PT at both wing positions.

          • Z.....

            Playing Turner at the 4 was what I ended up figuring may happen, but I’m curious to see how much they plan on using him in the rotation. I figured Allen and Christmas are 5s. I liked the deal for Christmas for them as depth behind Jordan Hill…Do you think they use Budinger/Solomon Hill as small ball 4s at times?

          • Dana Gauruder

            I could see Hill get minutes there; not sure if Budinger has the bulk and strength to play that spot. They still have Mahinmi, who was a rotation player last year, so he’s certainly in the mix to back up J. Hill.

          • Z.....

            I legit forgot about Mahinmi lol. If he could ever figure out how to defend without fouling so much, he would be a lot more valuable

          • Dana Gauruder

            Yes, that’s one of the reasons why he’s a 10-20 minute player.
