Kings Release Glenn Robinson III

3:58pm: The Kings have made it official, announcing in a press release that they’ve waived Robinson.

3:36pm: The Kings intend to waive forward Glenn Robinson III, sources tell Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN (Twitter link). The move will open up a spot on Sacramento’s roster, which is currently full.

Robinson, 27, signed a one-year, non-guaranteed minimum-salary contract with the Kings during the offseason after playing for the Warriors and 76ers in 2019/20. The veteran won the team’s final roster spot in training camp and appeared in 23 games for Sacramento, averaging 5.3 PPG and 2.0 RPG on .424/.364/.913 shooting in 16.0 minutes per contest.

Robinson is currently away from the Kings for personal reasons and was reportedly anticipating his release, since today is the deadline for teams to waive players on non-guaranteed deals and avoid paying their full-season salaries.

As Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee noted earlier, Robinson has been dealing with a minor knee issue and the Kings would have to continue to pay him until he’s healthy enough to play, but that injury isn’t believed to be serious.

Assuming Robinson goes unclaimed on waivers, he’ll become an unrestricted free agent on Friday, while Sacramento carries a cap hit of at least $930,930 on their books.

      lol i knew this was gonna happen cuz of halisburton’s rise to being a starter and prob RPOY and the fact that kings are more focused on having their young players take all the workload and have their vets as emergencies

        LaMelo is moping the flor with Haliburton, no way the ROY goes to anyone not called LaMelo… barring injuries, even with Haliburton playing a considerable amount more of minutes, he contributes much less to a worst team than CHA!

            zeller is doo doo lmao hes prob just a one hit wonder plays well in a series of games then goes back to playing mediocre as usual

    Every contender could benefit from having another wing who can score on their bench.

    Robinson is a bucket, his time in GSW proved that. Kings just didn’t know how to use him.
    I think he finds a good situation for himself.
    Lakers would make sense with two open roster spots

    Lakers, Indiana, Bulls, Memphis, Minnesota, Toronto all make some sort of sense to me

      Wolves have Culver. He must healthy and playing. Indiana Warren, Lamn, McDonald, Memphis… Why? Allen, Brooks, Bane… Robinson is don’t better than this players. Toronto maybe… and Lakers…. He is don’t a playoff upgrade.

      Theoretical Knicks , this team brought scoring. Denver…. maybe or Celtics

      Don’t easy

        A wing shooter that can somewhat defend, depending on who is around him, is a theoretical fit on a bunch of teams. The ones you mentioned were thoughts, but I felt like they would have to do other things for that to be neccessary, as well as a couple of teams where role is more questionable, whereas I think he could slide onto essentially any of those teams and be useful
