Duncan Robinson to play for Miami Heat in NBA Summer League

Don’t count Duncan out

NCAA Basketball: Final Four-Loyola vs Michigan Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Duncan Robinson wasn’t drafted on Thursday night, but he still has a shot to make an impression for an NBA team, as the Miami Heat brought Robinson on board to be on their Las Vegas Summer League roster.

The former Michigan forward will play in the Summer League with other rookies with the goal of making an NBA roster, or at least receiving a contract to play for the NBA G League.

Although Robinson has a steep hill to climb if he wants to make the Heat’s roster in 2018, but Miami definitely liked the 6-8 210 pounder enough to give him a chance.

Robinson is a more than a capable three point shooter (.384%), and his high three point and free throw prowess could make him a viable NBA bench player in the near future.

The Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, and Golden State Warriors all had Robinson work out for them, but Duncan chose to take his talents to South Beach instead.

The Summer League runs from July 6-17.
