The Kings are not done building out their roster for the 2020-21 season. After a wild week that saw general manager Monte McNair add a stack of veteran bigs, Sacramento brought in some depth at the wing on Sunday night.

According to a league source, the Kings added veteran small forward Glenn Robinson III on a one-year, league minimum contract. Hoops Hype's Mike Scotto was first with the news

Robinson, 26, is the son of former 1994 No. 1 overall pick Glenn Robinson. He's bounced around the league since being drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the No. 40 overall selection in the 2014 NBA Draft, playing for the T-Wolves, Philadelphia 76ers, Indiana Pacers, Detroit Pistons and Warriors.

The 6-foot-6, 220-pound forward posted the best numbers of his career early last season for the Warriors before they shipped him to the 76ers for a second tour of duty in Philly. He comes to Sacramento with career averages of six points and 2.8 rebounds over 281 career games.

Needing depth behind starter Harrison Barnes, Robinson fits the bill as an affordable option that can help stretch the floor. He's a career 37.3 percent shooter from long range and he knocked down 40 percent in 48 games with the Warriors last season.

After passing on a four-year, $72 million offer sheet for Bogdan Bogdanovic last week, McNair has added a series of veterans on short-term, low-budget contracts, including Hassan Whiteside, Frank Kaminsky, Chimezie Metu and now Robinson. 

 

Coach Luke Walton has a lot of hungry mouths to feed, but the Kings now have a full roster and plenty of flexibility next summer with half the roster coming off the books.
