Robinson was projected at No. 53 overall in the 2019 NBA Draft in a recent mock draft published by ESPN. The guard spoke to HoopsHype about how he has prepared for the draft so far this offseason. What kind of feedback have you been getting from teams after shining at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament and G League Elite Camp? Justin Robinson: They all like that I can run a team, create for others and be an extension of the coach on the court. I know my niche in the league and know who I can play and won’t play out of my role and be somebody that I’m not. They also like that I’m a sneaky shooter. I’ve proven during my college career that I can shoot at a high clip and I think that will translate well to the NBA and I’ll knock down open shots.

Goran Dragic talked to the Slovenian press before Saturday’s prep game against Montenegro and explained his motivation about his return to the Slovenian national team. “I predict the semi-finals, but then anything is possible”, said a smiling Dragic, who is ready to defend the title he won together with a young Luka Doncic back in 2017. However, after five years things are different and Dragic understands it: “In my opinion, I will play a little less minutes, it will not be at that level. I don’t know how much I played, 36 minutes per game? Everything will depend on how I feel. The role will definitely be different. I was Batman, but now I’ll be Robin. The most important thing will be to make sure we have good chemistry and be a leader on the court and lift guys up when it’s most difficult. My role remains the same, Luka’s may have changed a bit more, but I believe that everyone has their own role in the national team and that there will be no problems. We all understand each other, we are one big team, and that’s why we can make a good result. That chemistry is what other teams don’t have.”
Dragic had also to convince the Chicago Bulls to let him play, something that was not ideal for them: “When I had a medical exam with Chicago and sat down with them, they said I’d rather not play. I said I’d rather and in the end it’s the player who decides. I had to go to Chicago, undergo a medical examination and everything else. When you go to a medical examination, you always wait for the results, because you never know what can happen”.
