Former Florida Gator Devin Robinson has reportedly made it official with the Washington Wizards today. Robinson agreed to a two-year deal with Washington following the Wizards’ Summer League game against the Miami Heat in Las Vegas last night.
The #Wizards have signed rookie F Devin Robinson (Univ. of Florida) to the team's second 'two-way' contract, The Post has learned.— Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) July 13, 2017
The 6’8” forward is the final player to go under contract for Washington’s 2017-18 season. All 17 roster spots - 15 for regular players and two for two-way players - have now been filled.
D-Rob is the second player, along with Pittsburgh’s Michael Young, to be signed as a “two-way” player. This means that Robinson will be able to play up to 45 days during the regular season with the Wizards, and will spend the rest of the season in the NBA’s G League.
Under the NBA’s new collective bargaining agreement, teams can have two players who spend most of the season in the G League in order to develop them. Robinson and Young will attend Washington’s training camp in Richmond, and will later be assigned to a nearby G League team. (The Wizards do not operate their own affiliate, so the two rookies will play on another team’s squad.)
After leaving the Gators a year early to enter the NBA Draft, Robinson went undrafted. He accepted an invitation from Washington for the NBA’s Summer League and did make an impact in his time off the bench with the Wizards this summer - which has translated to a greater opportunity for him.
Robinson finished his junior season with the Gators with career-highs in points per game (11.1), rebounds (6.1) and three point percentage (.391). He also played a major role in Florida’s NCAA Tournament victories over East Tennessee State and Virginia.
