Player Outlook

Thomas Robinson has been one of the bigger draft busts around since he was the No. 5 overall pick in the 2012 draft, but he started to show some signs of life late last season with the 76ers. Robinson averaged 8.8 points and 7.7 rebounds per game for the Sixers after being waived by the Blazers, and he did that despite averaging just 18.5 minutes per game in 22 contests. That per-minute production is tremendous, though is obviously inflated by the 76ers pace and lack of offensive structure. With Brooklyn -- his fifth NBA team in four seasons -- he will have to earn his way into a significant role, and the presence of Thaddeus Young at power forward means minutes will likely continue to be limited for him. There might be some deep sleeper appeal here, but Robinson should probably go undrafted in the vast majority of leagues this season.

  • Nets forward Thomas Robinson (right knee) made the start in Monday's exhibition against Fenerbahce Ulker of Turkey, scoring 12 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 FT) and 16 rebounds in 26 minutes.Nets coach Lionel Hollins just handed Robinson the start as an experiment to see how he fared alongside Brook Lopez, as Thaddeus Young is in line to enter the lineup at power forward once the regular season starts. Still, Robinson, who was returning to action after offseason surgery to repair the meniscus in his knee, looked good while matching up against a Fenerbahce frontcourt that included former NBAers Jan Vesely and Ekpe Udoh. Nine of Robinson's 16 boards came on the offensive end, and if he can continue to hit the glass hard in the preseason, the former No. 5 overall pick could carve out a meaningful role in the Nets' frontcourt rotation.

  • Forward Thomas Robinson, whom the Nets just inked to a free-agent deal last week, suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee while working out Tuesday, per the team.
