“I share that story just because if one kid has the talent to bring enough college coaches, everybody has a unique opportunity to get looks, too,” Robinson told The Times. “It’s about development and you don’t have to be the best. It could be D-3, D-2, D-1 — we want to get that school paid for free. You can do that on an AAU circuit just by playing well against people who are supposedly ranked really high. All it takes is one game and one look.”
Glenn “Big Dog” Robinson, a star at Roosevelt, Purdue and eventual No. 1 NBA Draft pick, will be a part of the program along with Glenn’s mom, Shantelle Clay. “When I told him about this and obviously getting older — he just turned 49 — it’s crazy to see him getting older and he’s constantly wanting to give back,” Robinson said of his father, who lives in Atlanta. “He’s constantly telling me stories to empower other kids, what he did in his daily routines, how he was able to be successful in college and the league.”
Signing veteran Glenn Robinson III appeared to be something to replace losing Bazemore, but he fell out of the rotation and on the team’s last extended road trip, was listed out due to personal reasons at Milwaukee on Feb. 21. Sources said Robinson was indeed dealing with personal issues, but was also unhappy that he was no longer playing, something that wouldn’t change with young wing player DaQuan Jeffries getting whatever minutes were available for a backup wing player. Robinson was released last week before his salary was guaranteed for the season.
With seemingly no inclination to spend money and pay the luxury tax and, with GM Jon Horst having virtually mortgaged the team’s future — he dealt three No. 1 picks (all unprotected) to acquire Jrue Holiday, the Bucks options are clearly limited. One player who could come at a small price and help them is Glenn Robinson III, who was recently released by Sacramento and whom the Bucks have shown interest in in the past. “I think he’s a solid player,’’ a player personnel official said of Robinson. “His shot is pretty good; his defense is pretty good. I think he’d be a handy pickup for a team like the Bucks looking for an off-the-bench guy.’’
