2.9 ppg on 33/28/58 shooting splits and 2 weeks until he's 23

Perhaps he'll do significantly better with a new coach and more playing time.

His been in the NBA for two years, played only garbage time, and his per minutes stats are awful. But at age 22, you never know.

He has been alarmingly bad from the FT line, but he was an 83% FT shooter in college so it's probably a small sample size issue.

It's kind of a riskless acquisition. We have plenty of luxtax room available and few avenues to use it, even after signing Bertans. This way, we get a guy on a rookie scale deal instead of merely having the vet minimum exception to work with.

On the other hand, I kinda liked the profile of Issuf Sanon as a defensive-minded athletic guard better. But maybe Issuf sucks.

Oof. Well, it's not like we gave up much for him.

He has "first round talent" (whatever that means). And, we've "had our eye on him for a long time":

Well, I guess that thought process worked pretty well with respect to Mo Wagner. Maybe lightning strikes twice?

I guess we give IT to LAC and rights to Sanon to NY for Robinson? Or is there more to this...

Pretty hard to tell what Robinson is or isn't as an NBA player given the small sample size. Looks like he'll now back up Beal (along with Mathews) so he should be getting plenty of minutes the balance of this season.

I too like Sanon's profile as a rangy defender with speed and athleticism. Was it mistake to give him up to obtain Robinson? Well, it would take a crystal ball to know that for sure.

He had a good 3% in the d league last year and in college and just hasn't gotten playing time on a stacked team. His FT shooting isn't good but he has a positive assist to turn over. I would have rather let go of admiral than Sanon. But oh well .

McCrae is better and cheaper. At least Thomas is gone and Mathews looks like a good talent to backup Beal. I don’t have much faith in Shepard at this point.

NBA DRAFT ROOM MOCK DRAFT 2018

http://www.nbadraftroom.com/p/2018-nba-mock-draft.html

PICK 15 WASHINGTON WIZARDS - JEROME ROBINSON


HT: 6-5 - WT: 191 - WING: 6-7 1/4 - FROM: Boston College
A lights out shooter with deep range and good shot selection. Hits a high percentage from deep and from the ft line. After a last minute workout with the Wizards he could be the leading candidate to go to D.C. at no.15.


Overview
Robinson is one of the better three point shooters in the draft. He's got great mechanics, hits a high percentage and really knows how to find his shot. He's getting mentioned as a possible first rounder after moving up draft boards during the season and with a strong draft-season showing.

Strengths
Scoring and three point shooting - knows how to get his shot and doesn't need much space in order to get his shot off
Has good size for the position, which helps on both ends of the floor
An excellent free throw shooter
Can score from deep and in the mid range

Weaknesses
Isn't an elite above the rim player and doesn't have top end foot-speed
Needs to get stronger
Could struggle to score in the lane against NBA size

Comparisons

Here's his Draftexpress profile from back in 2016 fwiw....

There is definitely some intrigue surrounding Robinson's physical profile and versatile skill set. At 6'5”, with decent length, Robinson has the body to play the shooting guard position, but also the combo guard skills to operate as a big point guard. He possesses an average frame and could benefit from some added strength, but at just 19 years old it's not a major concern at this point. He is a quick and shifty athlete, who can operate at different speeds and shows some good quicknes in the open floor. He is bit heavy footed in a crowd, and doesn't finish explosively in traffic, but given time and space he has the deceptive athletic ability to load up and finish above the rim. His fractured wrist injury came after he finished an explosive highlight reel dunk in transition and came down hard on the floor. Robinson spent time last season playing both guard positions, showcasing a unique skill set for a 6'5” freshman. While he is by no means a refined true point guard, his ability to handle the basketball and creative vision project him as a big ball handling guard down the line. He is shifty and quick, can shake his man off the dribble going one on one, operate as an effective screen and roll ball handler, or play out of drive and dish situations. In stretches, Robinson looks like a mature guard who can make reads and execute basic passes, but at times he has the tendency to overplay and force the issue, something to be expected from a freshman guard slated alongside mid-major caliber teammates asked to compete in the most talented conference in college basketball. His 3.6 assists per 40 versus 3.2 turnovers is a good indicator of the creative playmaking ability he has, yet also his need to better understand efficient point guard responsibilities. During his freshman year, Robinson showed some promise as a slashing guard with his ability to get into the paint off the bounce, but once he gets there he didn't show that he could regularly turn those scoring opportunities into points. He did show that he was comfortable finishing around the rim using either hand, but he lacks the strength or explosive leaping ability to finish consistently in a crowd. He only attempted 3.7 free throws per 40, a number which you would like to see rise with more aggressiveness and confidence going towards the rim. While Robinson showed potential as a playmaking guard his freshman year, he also surprised as a perimeter scorer. His 37% from deep on 3.2 attempts per 40 is an impressive number for a freshman who can handle and pass the ball. Robinson has a relatively quick release and gets good elevation on his jumper, which allows him to get his shot off fairly easily given his size. The ball can come off his hands a little flat at times, especially when he is forced to get his shot off quickly. He showed some potential shooting on the move or off the dribble, but was far more comfortable in catch and shoot situations. Defenses were forced into closing out hard to Robinson on the perimeter, and he proved more than capable of stepping in and knocking down a one or two dribble jumper. Defensively, Robinson showed some potential as an impact player over the course of his freshman season. Physically he has the tools to defend both guard positions at the college level, as long as he maintains consistent effort. He does a solid job staying in a stance and keeping his hands high on drives to the basket, but he can be a bit over aggressive at times and get beaten off the dribble. He has good instincts and awareness and was able to come up with at least one steal in 17 of the 23 games he played in last season. If he can add some strength to his frame he'll be able to better defend better against bigger guard penetration on the perimeter. He is also an effective rebounder from the guard position, posting a per 40 rebounding average of 4.8. In his sophomore season at Boston College, Jerome Robinson will look to build on an impressive freshman year. He didn't really excel in any one aspect of the game last season, but showed some promise in a variety of areas. There is definitely some potential in a big ball handling guard who can also step outside and make shots, so if he can continue to show developments in both of those aspects of his game he will garner some more individual attention on a team that will likely again finish towards the bottom of the ACC. - Source: http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Jerome-Robinson-82102/ ©DraftExpress

That last part. Dinwiddie had similarly bad stats his first two seasons up to age 22. Then he was traded by Detroit to Brooklyn.

https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/d/dinwisp01.html

I foresee Jerome Robinson will have similar upward trajectory as Wizards player. He's a tweener who's capable of generate good points and assists. I'm excited about the Wizards winning trades all of a sudden.
2020 Wizards SHOULD Draft:

(Unless they move up in the top to draft Wiseman/Okongwu)

JALEN SMITH and either Xavier Tillman, Paul Reed, Udoka Azubuike, or TYLER BEY (if they get lucky and he slips in the draft).

He has the potential to be a high level NBA shooter. Him and Mathews will look real nice with wall. Wall suddenly have more three point shooters than he's ever had! Potentially!

You know what those words "liked him immensely" make me think? If the Clips hadn't picked him #13, & he was still there when our #15 came along, we probably would have taken him! :eek1:

Really dodged a bullet there.... Whew!

I'm guessing that's what Tommy saw in Robinson coming out of college and even now...a player with the potential to be another outstanding shooter next to Wall and Beal. Jerome hasn't shot it well thus far in the NBA but then again he really hasn't gotten much of an opportunity. Robinson shot almost 38% from three in college. Maybe with consistent minutes he can get back into the groove as a shooter.

Many of us wanted the Zards to collect young guys who might develop into rotation players...well we've got another one in Robinson.

He has a really good looking shot.

It hasn’t gone in yet much though.

Probably worth taking a chance... I was bullish on Sannon though
