After a strong season in the NBA G League, former Virginia Tech point guard Justin Robinson signed a 10-day contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday, the team announced.
In 13 games for the Delaware Blue Coats — all starts — Robinson averaged 15.5 points, 5.9 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game. Robinson was a major factor in leading Delaware to the NBA G League finals.
As a rookie in 2019-20, Robinson appeared in nine games for the Washington Wizards. When he wasn’t in the NBA, he split his time between Delaware and the Capital City Go-Go in the NBA G League, where he played in 33 games, making 24 starts. He averaged 14.2 points, 5.5 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.39 steals.

Robinson was a four-star point guard from Manassas, Virginia, who signed with Virginia Tech in the 2015 recruiting class. He was a four-year starter at point guard for the Hokies, where he averaged 11.1 points and 4.5 assists per game for his career.
Robinson was a key cog in one of the most successful periods in school history, leading the Hokies to three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. The Hokies were a tip-in at the buzzer away from defeating a Zion Williamson-led Duke team and advancing to the Elite Eight.
There is an opportunity in Oklahoma City for Robinson. Theo Maledon, George Hill and Robinson’s former college rival — Ty Jerome — have each spent time as Oklahoma City’s point guard this season.
Best of luck in Oklahoma City, Justin.
