  • Spurs' Thomas Robinson: Double-doubles in LSVL finale

    Robinson generated 10 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and 11 rebounds across 17 minutes during the Spurs' 80-72 loss to the Hawks in a Las Vegas Summer League consolation game Friday.

    Robinson capped off his stint in the desert with a solid showing, and his rebounding total paced the Spurs for the night. The veteran big man acquitted himself well during his relatively limited allotment of playing time in Las Vegas, averaging 8.3 points and 6.8 rebounds across 14.0 minutes over four games, a body of work preceded by 11.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 17.0 minutes per three Salt Lake City League tilts. The 28-year-old will hope to parlay the solid body of work overall into a training camp invite at minimum.

  • Spurs' Thomas Robinson: Nursing knee injury

    Robinson will be held out of the Spurs' Las Vegas Summer League matchup Sunday versus the Hornets due to a right knee injury, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    The severity of Robinson's injury isn't clear, but the 28-year-old wasn't likely to receive a long look in summer league anyway, given his status as an elder statesman and non-roster player on the Spurs' entry in Las Vegas. Robinson, a 2012 lottery pick of the Kings, last saw regular-season NBA action in 2016-17 as a member of the Lakers.

    Robinson piled up 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-8 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a steal in the 112-103 loss Sunday to Lakeland.

  • Thomas Robinson: Cut by Hawks

    Robinson was waived by the Hawks on Saturday.

    Robinson signed a non-guaranteed contract with Atlanta in August, which was seen mainly as a training-camp invitation.

  • Hawks' Thomas Robinson: Gets non-guaranteed deal from Atlanta

    Robinson agreed Monday with the Hawks on a non-guaranteed contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The terms of Robinson's pact with Atlanta aren't fully known, but it's likely that the 2012 lottery pick is being brought in on what amounts to little more than a training-camp invitation. Since entering the league, Robinson has bounced around between six different teams, with his most recent NBA action coming with the Lakers in the 2016-17 campaign. He spent the most recent season with BC Khimki of the Russian VTB United League, appearing in 20 EuroLeague contests and averaging 8.2 points and 5.9 rebounds in 15.6 minutes per game.
