“I feel like I’m really effective in transition with my ability to finish at the rim, make plays for others, and shoot the ball. Also, I really like how coach Dixon runs his system, it’s a lot of 4-out-1 in and he really lets his guys have freedom. And with my versatility, I can fill all spots on the perimeter so I feel it’s a perfect fit for me!”

The coaching staff seems invested in how they can help develop me to help me get to where I ultimately want to go” Robinson said.
“But they also see all the things I bring to the table to help the team’s overall success as well!”
