5. Glenn Robinson III, SF, 24
Robinson is another interesting experiment. Like Curry, he shouldn’t cost much because he missed most of last season due to injury.
If you don’t like the phrase “3-and-D wing” well then you probably don’t like the modern NBA. You might not like Glenn Robinson III for the Knicks either because that’s what he projects as a young 3-and-D wing.
Robinson is a career 38.1 percent shooter from three-point range and he would automatically become one of the best perimeter defenders on the team. Next to Kevin Knox? That’d be nice to see.
Robinson’s just 24 years old; he’s already played four seasons and been on three different teams. He was waived by Minnesota 25 games into his rookie season, picked up by Philly, then spent his last three seasons with the Pacers.
The Knicks are looking to move Courtney Lee, and they need to find one or more players to take his minutes in the rotation. Robinson, a young wing with upside, could slide right into that role.
He also has an in with a couple current Knicks. Robinson was on the Michigan team along with Tim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke that went to the National Championship game.
