Duncan Robinson on free agency: 'I’m just trying to keep an open mind'

Robinson, who has spent his first three NBA seasons with the Miami Heat, is set to become a restricted free agent this offseason. Teams can begin negotiating with free agents on Aug. 2 and officially begin signing free agents on Aug. 6. “For a while there it was like I’m just not even thinking about it. We’ll see,” Robinson said when asked about his impending free agency during a recent appearance on “The Old Man and the Three with JJ Redick and Tommy Alter” podcast. “Now we’re kind of getting into the zone where it’s like, all right, I’ll start to kind of feel out some different things and start to kind of really think critically about what I’m looking for in a potential destination.”

Comparable players such as Brooklyn Nets sharpshooter Joe Harris signed a four-year, $75 million contract and Washington Wizards three-point specialist Davis Bertans signed a five-year, $80 million as free agents last offseason. “The fact that I’m restricted, I think, changes a lot of things largely in that I’ve really, really loved my experience in Miami,” Robinson continued on the podcast. “But the reality is I don’t know a month from now what it’s going to look like. With where I’m at right now, truthfully, I’m just trying to keep an open mind. A big part of that is like not getting too attached to any scenario.”
There will be plenty of important roster decisions in front of the Heat in the coming weeks, and it will have a big one to make regarding Robinson. “I haven’t even like entered into that realm yet at this point three weeks out,” Robinson said of his impending free agency on the podcast. “So like for me right now, it’s just more about like, all right, I’m just going to continue handling my business day in and day out, take the information as it comes. Hopefully, at some point the right opportunity for me will become clear and we’ll move forward.”
But because rumor season is in full swing, Robinson made a point on his podcast that dropped Friday to assure that there are no tea leaves to be read at the moment, even when co-host Davis Reid, his longtime friend, joked about Robinson possibly removing a piece of Heat memorability from his den. “I want to get out in front of Davis somehow alluding to me maybe not being in Miami moving forward,” Robinson chimed in. “That’s not at all what that was. There’s been a lot of speculation, confusion.”
