Robinson's $1.05 million contract for the 2016-17 season became fully guaranteed Monday, Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star reports.
The Pacers had 16 guaranteed contracts on the books as recently as last week, but the team's decision to waive Shayne Whittington days earlier will keep Robinson in the fold for 2016-17. Robinson likely helped his case to stick on the roster by averaging 15.6 points and 5.6 rebounds per game during summer league play, but it's uncertain if the third-year swingman will be in line for a rotation spot to begin the upcoming campaign.
Robinson averaged 15.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2 assists per game in five Orlando Summer League appearances.
Robinson served as Indiana's leading scorer throughout summer league play. In 80 career games, the two-year veteran has posted 3.1 points and 1.3 rebounds per contest, so his performance this summer proved to be something out of the ordinary. While Robinson only shot 54.5 percent from the charity stripe, he converted on 38.1 percent of his three-pointers. While the offensive will likely run through both Paul George and Monta Ellis, Robinson could be ready to take on a bigger role this upcoming season.
Glenn Robinson (coach's decision) didn't appear in Tuesday's 102-99 Game 5 loss to the Raptors.
Robinson had seen light playing time in the three preceding games of the series, but given the competitive nature of Tuesday's affair, coach Frank Vogel tightened his rotation, leaving no room for Robinson. The swingman will continue to serve as wing depth, but won't see the floor barring a string of injuries.
Glenn Robinson has seen double-digit minutes in four of the Indiana Pacers ' last five games.
The Michigan product averaged nearly 14 minutes per game in November before falling out of favor the following month, appearing in only seven games during the month of December. Robinson worked his way back into the mix shortly thereafter, however, closing January with averages of 3.6 points and 1.9 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game while notching only one DNP-CD. Robinson rarely sees his minutes total creep above the 15-17 range, however, and he's far from a polished option offensively, so his fantasy utility is quite low and figures to remain that way throughout the rest of the season.
Glenn Robinson will come off the bench Tuesday against the Clippers, Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star reports.
The Indiana Pacers confirmed after their morning shootaround that George Hill, who served in a reserve role Saturday against the Kings following a three-game absence due to the birth of his son, will take back his usual spot as the starting point guard, leaving no room for Robinson on the top unit. Robinson had only played 10 minutes while starting in place of Hill on Saturday, so the move back to the bench likely won't result in a dramatic change in the second-year swingman's playing time situation.
