Warriors profile: Glenn Robinson III looks to revitalize his career


Editor's note: The Warriors' roster looks completely different than it did at this time last year. Golden State enters a new era at Chase Center with an injured Klay Thompson and without dynasty mainstays Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.

As the Warriors' offseason goes on, we'll do a profile on every player on the revamped roster. Monday's edition focuses on Glenn Robinson III.


One-year, $1,882,867 (player option for 2020-21)

Last season

After Robinson signed a two-year, $8.3 million contract with the Pistons, there was an expectation that the 25-year-old would revitalize his NBA career. 
Those plans never came to fruition, though, as Robinson averaged just 4.2 points and 1.5 rebounds while shooting 42 percent from the field as injuries limited him to 47 games. 
Robinson continued to struggle even after a mid-season trade sent Stanley Johnson and Reggie Bullock out of town. Last month, the Pistons traded for sharpshooter Tony Snell and drafted Sekou Doumbouya, prompting them to decline Robinson's $4.3 million team option.


The onset of Robinson's career has been defined by movement, as he played for three teams in his first three seasons as a pro. His career seemed to gain traction in Indiana, where he became a solid rotation player behind star forward Paul George, including the 2016-17 season, when he shot 39 percent from 3-point range.

Over a three-year stretch with the Pacers, Robinson shot 45 percent from the field, including 39.3 percent from beyond the arc.  
With the Warriors, Robinson will try to recapture his play in Indiana on a Golden State roster that could use shooting. In training camp, he'll compete for the starting small forward spot with Alec Burks and Alfonzo McKinnie.
