Magic Sign Stanley Robinson

Gary W. Green, Orlando Sentinel

Via the Orlando Magic:

The Orlando Magic have signed forward Stanley Robinson, President of Basketball Operations Otis Smith announced today.

Robinson was originally selected by Orlando during the second round (59th overall) of the 2010 NBA Draft. Per team policy, terms of the deal are not disclosed.

Robinson played on the Magic’s summer league team in the 2010 AirTran Airways Pro Summer League, where he averaged 5.4 points and 5.2 rebounds and shot 50 percent from the floor.

Robinson (6’9”, 210, 7/14/88) appeared in 126 career games (103 starts) at the University of Connecticut, averaging 9.8 ppg., 6.2 rpg., 1.0 apg. and 1.03 blkpg. during his four-year collegiate career. As a senior (2009-10), he averaged 14.5 ppg., a team-high 7.6 rpg., 1.0 apg. and 1.21 blkpg. for the Huskies. Robinson helped UConn reach the NCAA Final Four in 2009.

It’s official.

I wouldn't say Robinson rebounds the basketball extremely well, but it's certainly something he's capable of doing.

@hulKK

It's going to be hard for Robinson to land a roster spot with the Magic, but at least he'll get that chance. And that's all you can ask for.

@trod409

Maybe. Way too early to tell.

Can Stanley Robinson be the next Trevor Ariza?

I'm really happy for Stanley and I'm glad Otis decided to reward this young man who stayed in college for at least 3yrs and tried hard to develop his game before he went to the NBA. I'm so tired of seeing these supposedly promising high school players, college freshman and sophmores sit on an NBA bench and waste teams draft picks. I'd rather see a player like Stanley earn that spot because they've worked hard to sit on the bench.

Otis good decision again. This guy is extremely athletic and rebounds extremely well.
