The Milwaukee Bucks have been making some significant roster moves over the past couple of days as they bolster their lineup ahead of the new season. Their latest signing comes in the form of NBA journeyman Glenn Robinson III, who has reportedly agreed to an Exhibit 10 deal with the Bucks on Thursday.
Milwaukee Bucks Sign Glenn Robinson III
The Bucks cleared some room on the roster on Wednesday by requesting the waiver of three players. These were Drew Timme, Jazian Gortman, and Omari Moore. Obviously, none of them are household names, and these moves aren’t exactly going to impact Milwaukee’s title chances this coming season.
Either way, the front office decided to fill one of those recently vacated roster spots by bringing in Robinson, who will now join his eighth team in eight years. Prior to agreeing to a new deal with Milwaukee, Robinson has also had stints with the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Indiana Pacers, the Detroit Pistons, the Golden State Warriors, and most recently, the Sacramento Kings.
In 23 games played for Sacramento last season, the 6-foot-6 small forward produced averages of 5.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 16.0 minutes per contest.
Glenn Robinson III Reacts to Full Circle Moment
Robinson took to Twitter to share his emotional reaction to his latest career move. Clearly, the 29-year-old is very much looking forward to joining his new team:
“I’m more than excited to be back hooping! I can remember being at Bucks games as a kid watching pops, life really does come full circle! Humble yourself before God, and you will be exalted at the right time,” Robinson wrote in his tweet.
In case you didn’t know, the “pops” Robinson was referring to in his message is former Milwaukee star Glenn Robinson. Most Bucks fans will know him by his moniker, Big Dog.
Robinson started off his career with the Bucks as the first overall pick of the 1994 NBA Draft. He spent eight years in Milwaukee, which included two All-Star appearances. During his tenure with the team, the former Purdue standout averaged 21.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.2 steals.
In the last season of his career, Robinson won a championship with the San Antonio Spurs.
