After starting his college career at D-III school Williams College, Robinson headed to Michigan and spent the last three years with the Wolverines.
The 6’8″ guard/forward averaged a modest 9.3 PPG in his three seasons at Michigan, but showed off an impressive outside stroke, converting 41.9% of his three-pointers. During his time with the Wolverines, 565 of Robinson’s 785 field goal attempts came from beyond the arc.
Robinson has been playing for Miami’s Summer League squad and is averaging a team-high 14.0 PPG in two Las Vegas contests. He also looked good in the Sacramento Summer League last week, averaging 11.3 PPG on 57.1% shooting.
The Heat carried Derrick Jones and Derrick Walton as their two-way players in 2017/18, but opened up one of those slots when they signed Jones to a standard NBA deal last week. The team currently has a qualifying offer out to Walton, so it’s possible he’ll return alongside Robinson in that other two-way slot.
