Storyline: Summer League Rosters
When the Clippers’ scouting department made their respective prospect rankings, Frank claims they were almost unanimous in evaluating Robinson as an NBA-ready scorer and lottery talent that would be the logical pick in the Clippers’ draft range. “It’d be one thing if I just had that opinion,” Frank said. “But when we do our scout rankings, we don’t allow out other scouts to look at the other scouts’ rankings because we don’t want to get into the group thing and you want to avoid the echo chamber. When you just kept on seeing [Jerome], you’re like, ‘OK, I think we’re onto something.’”
Though Robinson didn’t win over all of his skeptics in the media ahead of the draft — some mock drafts still had him as a late first-round pick as recently as a few days before the draft — Frank and his front office refused to waver in their confidence in the 21-year-old. “Internally we were always very, very high on him,” Frank told The Athletic. “And we thought, if you’re going to allow the mock drafts to determine your decision-making, that’s probably a little bit skewed. But we did think eventually the rest of the basketball media community would catch on to how good he is.”
