JULY 23: The signing is official, the Raptors announced in an email.
JULY 17: The Raptors have agreed to sign free agent wing Devin Robinson to a one-year, non-guaranteed contract, reports Blake Murphy of The Athletic (via Twitter). It’s not clear if it will be an Exhibit 10 deal, but it sounds like it could be.
Robinson spent the last two seasons on a two-way contract with the Wizards. He appeared in seven games for Washington in 2018/19, averaging 6.7 PPG and 2.9 RPG in 13.6 minutes per contest. The 24-year-old saw more frequent action for the Capital City Go-Go in the G League, recording 19.9 PPG and 8.2 RPG in 22 games (34.4 MPG) last season.
Robinson’s time in D.C. came to an abrupt end in April when he was arrested following a fight with NFL player Jalen Mills outside a Washington nightclub. The Wizards quickly announced that the former Florida Gator wouldn’t be back with the team, and he became an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Based on the current make-up of the Raptors’ roster, Robinson will have an uphill battle to earn a spot on the regular season squad. The team is only carrying 12 players with fully guaranteed salaries, but Cameron Payne and Dewan Hernandez will have partial guarantees, and Chris Boucher and Malcolm Miller (both non-guaranteed) are also candidates to return.
