Schefter strangely breaks Warriors news of Robinson camp contract

In news that will have many double-checking to make sure they’re not being fooled by a fake Twitter profile, ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Schefter broke an NBA story.

On Wednesday, Schefter reported, citing sources, that former Los Angeles Clippers lottery pick Jerome Robinson is signing a one-year deal with the Warriors to fight for a roster spot in training camp. 

Robinson spent last season with the NBA G League Santa Cruz Warriors and averaged 20.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 3.8 assists over 22 games.

After winning the 2022 NBA Finals over the Boston Celtics, the Warriors have seen a couple of vital depth pieces leave this summer as Juan Toscano-Anderson, Gary Payton II, Otto Porter Jr., and Nemanja Bjelica have all signed elsewhere.

The 25-year-old is hoping he can translate his G League production into a roster spot and be a productive player on a Warriors team that is looking to repeat as champions.

Robinson does have plenty of NBA experience with 113 games under his belt. As a former lottery draft pick, the talent is there.

The Warriors might believe they can tap into Robinson’s potential and hit on another reclamation project.
