Enter Sam Hinkie, the 76er GM, who needed a Robinson-sized contract to meet the CBA salary floor. The Nets and Robinson were pissed. The 23-year-old thought his career was over. “I’m like, ‘I’m done. I’m out of the league.’ That was my complete thought,” he told Mike Mazzeo. “I figured they just picked me up for my salary and then they were going to dump me. And then two days later, I’d be done. That’s what I was thinking.” “I played the most minutes I’ve played in my career. And what a coincidence, I doubled my numbers.” In 22 games with Philadelphia, Robinson averaged 8.8 points and 7.7 rebounds over 18.5 minutes a night. He also averaged 2.3 personals. He’s been foul prone.
The Brooklyn Nets announced Tuesday that Thomas Robinson, their recently signed power forward sustained a small meniscus tear in his right knee while working out in New York. He will undergo arthroscopic surgery Wednesday. At that point, the Nets medical staff will release further details including a timetable for his return. Normally, a meniscus tear, particularly one described as “small,” will require weeks of recovery and rehabilitation. Nets training camp won’t open until October 1, although players usually start gathering and working out a month earlier. Robinson required off-season surgery last season as well, that time a torn thumb liagment.
But Lopez, sitting in Barclays Center shortly after signing a three-year maximum deal, said it was little more than a brief conversation between a former coach & player, and at the end of the day, Brooklyn was where he wanted to be. “I heard from J-Kidd, we talked a little bit, but at the end of the day, I’m here right now. This is where I wanted to be,” Lopez said following a 20-minute press conference introducing Lopez, Thaddeus Young, Thomas Robinson, and Shane Larkin.
