NBA Summer League Spotlight: Devin Robinson

By Alex Busch | July 8, 2018

LAS VEGAS — After playing on a two-way contract with the Washington Wizards last season, Devin Robinson is looking to make the next step in his career.

Robinson, who played in the NBA G League with both the Delaware Blue Coats and Westchester Knicks during his rookie season, averaged 13.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 44 games at the G League level.

The Florida Gators product said this summer’s improvement all comes from being confident in his game.

“Personally, it’s just my confidence, I feel that much more comfortable out there,” said Robinson. “I’m just getting these opportunities and following through on them right now.”

Robinson scored 24 points in the Wizards’ second game of NBA Summer League on Sunday, flying high for several highlight-reel dunks. But he said it’s his 3-point shot that has changed his game from last season to now.

“I’m still developing my 3-point shot, I’m just getting reps everyday and trying to work on my form,” said Robinson. “Last year I was shaky and I didn’t have the confidence to shoot many threes, but I think now I can add that to my game.”

Robinson is now a free agent looking to sign an NBA contract this summer, and his play with the Wizards Summer League team can only help his cause moving forward.
