Kings Among Teams Hoping To Sign Glenn Robinson III

The Kings are among a group of four teams that have expressed the most interest in adding Glenn Robinson III, according to Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee.

Sources tell Anderson that the Lakers, Clippers and Jazz are considered Sacramento’s main competition to sign the free agent forward. Sources also say new Kings general manager Monte McNair and assistant GM Wes Wilcox have been diligent in their pursuit of Robinson.

Sacramento could offer regular playing time to Robinson, who is one of the top free agents still left on the market. The Kings need wing depth after declining to match the offer sheet Bogdan Bogdanovic received from the Hawks, and Robinson would get an opportunity to compete for back-up minutes at small forward.

Robinson, 26, averaged 11.7 points and shot 39.1% from three-point range last season in a combined 62 games with the Warriors and Sixers. Philadelphia acquired him at the trade deadline to add bench depth, but his numbers declined after the deal and he was barely used in the playoffs.

A second-round pick in 2014, Robinson has also played for the Timberwolves, Pacers and Pistons.

    He played well for the Warriors last season, so the Kings should be a good fit for him since they’re close to the level of talent as those he played with at Golden State.

      I can’t wait until GSW make the playoffs and Houston doesn’t even make the play in qualifications.

      • Houston will be a lottery team for the next 5+ seasons. hw-mvps is delusional for thinking otherwise.

      • Little_Dunker_45

        I think the opposite of that is far more likely. People are underestimating Houston. Curry is getting very comfortable on the golf course…if you ask me

        • Never underestimate Curry. They said he could play division 1 college. He did great. Said he was to small for the NBA became a 2 time MVP. If you want somebody light weight look at AD.

      It’s been interesting to watch hw-mvps’ spiral into bitterness towards everything lol

      I mean I don’t think he said anything wrong. “The talent he played with at GSW”. Curry, Klay and Draymond weren’t playing majority of last year. So his actual teammates on the court is what the original poster is talking about.

    Thought Robinson might have been close to getting a starting spot somewhere like Orlando, TWolves, Nuggets, Dallas or Portland.

    Still think he’d be a good fit for Orlando at the 3 with Issac injured and Gordon going to play the 4. They need a shooter like him.

    He’d also still be a great depth piece for Dallas or Denver if they have the cap space. Particularly Dallas with his shooting and alright defence. Plus his ability to come off the bench and hit straight away

    He should go to the Kings. He won’t get off the bench for the other three. Harden-Westbrook is right.

  4. Sillivan

    To me it’s about money
    If Kings offer him $6 million and Lakers offer him 2 million
    I’ll take 6 million

    • Simmons>Russ

      I’d take the 2mil and chance at wining a ring and playing a good role off the bench then hitting FA again next season and getting an even better deal

  5. x%sure

    After Philly, GR3 needs to establish himself with a team that will play him, not rely on helping a winning team win.

    GR3 made a lot off comments last season about returning to the Dubs – mgmt said positive things and their fans are dying to have him back (really). I think he’ll end up with GS at the end of it all.

  7. Alex Ashton

    Would love to see him back with the Dubs. We still have enough MLE left to compete for him, I would think. He fits our system well, did well when he was here, and is flexible 2-3 where you can never have enough players.

    He would also allow some flexibility on the roster next year, since Oubre is on the last year of his contract and Wiggins is pretty much the only salary that could make a star-level acquisition possible.
