Report: Celtics put Thomas Robinson through workout
Stuck in limbo waiting for the Kyrie Irving trade to be finalized, the Celtics are continuing with business as usual, reportedly bringing forward/center Thomas Robinson in for a workout at their team facility, according to ESPNâ€™s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The fifth overall pick from the 2012 NBA Draft, Robinson has bounced around to six different franchises in his five-year NBA career, and most recently played in 48 games for the Lakers, where he averaged five points and 4.6 rebounds in 11:41 per night.
While a journeyman, the 26-year-old Robinson remained an efficient rebounder for the Lakers this past season, and his 21.8 total rebounding percentage ranked as the eighth-best in the NBA among players with at least 40 games played. (No single Celtics player had better than a 13.2 percentage in that regard, held by Tyler Zeller.)
If signed, Robinson would provide insurance to a frontcourt short on rebounding prowess and bodies, especially with Ante Zizic expected to be part of the package traded to the Cavaliers if and when the Irving trade is finalized.
Robinson has averaged 4.9 points and 4.8 rebounds in 313 career NBA games.
