Were he to sign on with Golden State, it would mark Robinson’s second stint with the team. A seven-year vet out of Michigan, he previously spent a portion of the 2019/20 season with the Warriors.
That Golden State team provided a unique opportunity for playing time for the 6’6″ swingman, as starting shooting guard Klay Thompson was out the entire season with a torn ACL and starting point guard Stephen Curry was sidelined for all but five games due to a hand injury.
Robinson played 48 games for the Warriors that year, starting all of them. Across those contests, he averaged careers highs of 12.9 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 1.8 APG and 0.9 SPG, across 31.6 MPG. He was eventually flipped to the Sixers midway through the season.
Since being selected by the Timberwolves with the No. 40 pick in 2014, Robinson has also suited up for the Pacers, Pistons and most recently the Kings in 2020/21. He hasn’t played professionally since then. Robinson is a career 37.3% three-point shooter, albeit on a relatively modest 1.7 attempts a night. The 29-year-old could theoretically help spread the floor for the Warriors, while offering solid defense on the other end in spot minutes.
A return to the Warriors this season could also provide him with a real minutes opportunity off the bench, as the 2023/24 iteration of Golden State could still use some veteran wings with size behind starters Thompson and Andrew Wiggins. Third-year wings Moses Moody and Jonathan Kuminga struggled to earn significant rotation time last season.
Golden State currently has 13 players inked to its standard 15-man roster.
