The Wizards recalled Devin Robinson from the Delaware 87ers of the NBA G League on Wednesday. Robinson was signed by the Wizards on a two-way contract last summer, but was called up to the Wizards in January when Otto Porter was out due to a hip strain.
Robinson played 32 games for Delaware, the 76ers’ G-League affiliate. The 87ers play at the Bob Carpenter Arena at the University of Delaware. It just happens to be the same arena that Elena Delle Donne called home during her college days. During his time there, Robinson averaged 13.2 points and 5.2 rebounds in 26 minutes per game in a sixth man role.
While in Delaware, Robinson also had a chance to rock the 87ers’ Spongebob Squarepants alternates on January 3:
He also had a chance to play alongside former Wizards center Emeka Okafor, who also wore those quirky uniforms:
Okafor has since signed a 10-day contract with the Pelicans and even started a game for them last Monday considering their needs at the post.
But going back to Robinson’s specific situation, he may get some playing time considering that Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky were both injured in the same game. though Robinson isn’t a point guard like Frazier or Satoransky, in a one game situation, Washington can use the extra depth. Robinson hasn’t made his NBA debut yet, but if the game is lopsided, he still may get some time.
