The Washington Wizards continue to fill out the 2017-18 roster, now adding a 17th and final player under contract. Devin Robinson has signed to a “two-way” deal with the team, a person with knowledge of the team’s thinking told The Post.
Robinson and the team agreed to the two-year contract following the Wizards’ Summer League game against the Miami Heat in Las Vegas on Wednesday night.
Robinson, a lanky 6-foot-8 forward out of the University of Florida, becomes the second player, along with Michael Young, signed as a “two-way” player. The pair of rookies will attend the team’s training camp in Richmond then will be assigned to a nearby NBA G League team. Under the league’s new collective bargaining agreement, teams can have two players who will spend most of the season in the G League to develop them. Since the Wizards do not operate a G League franchise, the team will likely send Robinson and Young to the Delaware 87ers, owned by the Philadelphia 76ers.
Robinson, 22, played three years in Florida and averaged career-highs in points (11.1), rebounds (6.1) and three-point percentage (.391) during his junior season.
“Devin runs like a deer and gets his jump shot off so quickly,” Florida Coach Mike White told the reporters during the Gators’ run in March Madness. “He’s a very talented guy. He can be a force at both ends of the floor.”
Robinson has roots in Chesterfield County, Va., just south of Richmond, and was named the Virginia Independent Schools Player of the Year in 2014.
