Glenn Robinson III Receiving Interest From Lakers, Clippers, Others

Free agent swingman Glenn Robinson III has received interest from several playoff teams, according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, who identifies the Lakers, Clippers, Rockets, Nets, and Jazz as the teams eyeing Robinson.

Robinson, who turns 27 in January, began last season with the Warriors and played some of the best basketball of his career in Golden State. In 48 games (all starts) for the Dubs, he averaged 12.9 PPG and 4.7 RPG on .481/.400/.851 shooting in 31.6 minutes per contest.

After being traded from Golden State to Philadelphia at February’s deadline, Robinson saw his role cut back significantly and his numbers dipped accordingly (7.7 PPG and 3.1 RPG in 19.3 MPG). He only logged 36 total minutes in the 76ers’ first-round playoff series, a four-game sweep at the hands of Boston.

While Robinson is unlikely to start for a playoff team in 2020/21, he’d offer solid depth on the wing for any of the potential suitors listed above. Not all of those clubs are limited only to minimum-salary offers, but it won’t be a surprise if the former Michigan Wolverine ends up signing for the minimum.

    Playing time wise: Houston makes the most sense. If he wants to get paid then, Sullivan you’re the defacto salary cap adviser in here. Who has the most cap within these teams?

    • Sillivan

      Jazz and Nets can offer Robinson $5.7 million
      Don’t play for these five teams
      Lakers Clippers Rockets are hard capped
      Both Jazz and Rockets are over luxury tax line $3 million
      Nets are $52 million over tax line

      Play for bad team

      • Sillivan

        Luxury tax bill
        Nets 52 million
        Rockets 3 million
        Jazz 3 million
        Lakers and Clippers have vet vin to offer due to hard cap

          Id sign with Houston. He gets the playing time and also gets a modest salary. Houston will be a playoff team long as they Russ/Harden/Tucker.

          • harden-westbrook-mvps

            The Rockets already have Harden, Westbrook, House, Gordon, Ben McLemore, David Nwaba, and Sterling Brown. GR3 would get 10-12 MPG tops with all those other guys already on the roster. He would get far more playing time elsewhere.

            • raz427

              You’re the ONLY guy who would have Nwaba >> GRIII. Nwaba is a late defensive sub coming into the game during timeouts.

              • x%sure

                Interesting comparison, both had their best PER last year, but at least D.Nwaba offers disruptive D. If a coach wants to use Nwaba only for late that’s his business, but Nwaba will disrupt the opponent all game long if asked, and hit his shots, 43%3 in a short year. Morey went to a lot of trouble to get him.

                GR3 is at the meh level, nobody going to any trouble, looking at the minimum. He has played in 281 games in six years, making 37%3s, known only for that and for not taking advantage of chances, no longer young. The Sixers were desperate for shooting and didn’t play him.

                Sterling Brown was also given up on, there’s your wtf.

              • Sirsleepit

                Nwaba is a far better complement to Westbrook/Harden than GR3. Don’t know why you think he is just a defensive sub.

          • Sillivan

            All 5 teams are planning to offer him vet min
            Rockets can offer him 8 minutes per game and trade him at the deadline

            It would be better for him to play for Kings

    • harden-westbrook-mvps

      The Rockets already have lots of wings on their roster. His best opportunity to make a team would be with the Lakers even with their very low chance of a repeat.
