One of the more interesting prospects in the 2014 NBA Draft is former Michigan Wolverines’ swingman Glenn Robinson III.
Robinson’s father was the number one overall pick by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 1994 NBA Draft. Although the younger Robinson won’t be the top overall pick like his father, he certainly has a chance to go in the first round and have a nice NBA Career. Robinson’s name has come up in connection with several teams and he most recently worked out for the Charlotte Hornets.
Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer has the scoop.
Glenn Robinson III won’t be the top pick in the NBA draft, the way his namesake was back in 1994. But people who’ve seen father and son play recognize distinctive similarities.
“He actually moves a lot like his dad,” Charlotte Hornets coach Steve Clifford observed, after Robinson was one of six players working out at Time Warner Cable Arena on Friday in preparation for the June 26 draft.
Robinson is a 6-foot-6 small forward who played two seasons at Michigan before turning pro. He figures to go in the latter half of the first round, and the Hornets have the 24th overall pick, along with the ninth and 45th picks.
Robinson, who measured in at 6’6.75″ and 211 pounds with a 6’10″ wingspan at the NBA’s Scouting Combine, averaged 13.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game last season.
Others at the workout were workout were Thanasis Antetokounmpo, the brother of Milwaukee Bucks’ wing Giannis Antetokounmpo, former Connecticut Huskies’ forward DeAndre Daniels, former Wichita State forward Cleanthony Early, former Iowa State Cyclones’ forward Melvin Ejim and former Syracuse Orange forward C.J. Fair.
