Report: Warriors agree to sign Robinson to training camp deal originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

The Warriors will consider another guard later this fall.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday, citing sources, that Golden State has agreed to sign 26-year-old guard Jerome Robinson to a training camp deal.

Robinson, the No. 13 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, played in 113 games during his career for the Los Angeles Clippers and Washington Wizards. He never found his footing in Los Angeles, averaging 3.4 points in a limited rookie role, and was traded to the Wizards in 2020 in a three-team deal involving Isaiah Thomas .

Robinson recorded 7.4 points on 36.1 percent shooting from the field in 38 games for Washington and was waived by the Wizards in April 2021. The Santa Cruz Warriors released him from waivers in January 2022.

In 24 regular season games with the G League Warriors last season, Robinson recorded 14.8 points, 4.8 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 29.2 minutes per game. He shot 46.3% from the field and 36.2% from 3 points.

Robinson is a candidate to fill a vacant spot on Golden State’s roster. The Warriors have two open spots on the roster, but are only expected to fill one due to their expensive salary cap well above the luxury tax. Robinson is not eligible for a two-way deal as he has logged over three years of NBA service time.

The Warriors will open training camp later this fall. They will face the Los Angeles Lakers for two preseason exhibitions on October 7 and 13.
