I hate having to talk about players from the cesspool that is Michigan, but they really have some high level NBA talent I wouldn’t mind the Cavs drafting. Glenn Robinson III is one of those players.
It has been a very tough season to judge what type of player Glenn Robinson III will become. He was arguably the most talented player going into the season on a team that already had an experienced and aggressive shooter in Tim Hardaway Jr. and ended up with the Big Ten player of the year in Trey Burke. As a result, Robinson was efficient but extremely passive and seemed to disappear for long periods of time during games.
Strengths: Dynamic leaper/dunker, great length for a SF, high basketball IQ, smooth dribbler, great form on shot either off the bounce and in catch and shoot situations, above average passer, great transition player, young, NBA pedigree, extremely unselfish
Weaknesses: Needs to add strength, at 6’6″ he would be slightly undersized for the top SF in the NBA, extremely unselfish, range could be better
Bottom Line: Extremely unselfish is in both his strengths and weaknesses for this reason: For a team looking for a star, that quality is bad. For a team like the Cavs who have a star at PG in Kyrie Irving and an aggressive shooter/scorer in Dion Waiters, unselfish play and the willingness to be the “glue” guy on a team is perfect. This is probably only possible if the Cavs trade down (depending on where they end up) or the Lakers make the playoffs, but with 4 young starters seemingly in place everywhere but SF, GR3 could be the missing piece we are looking for.
Stats: 33.2 MPG, 10.7 PPG, 55.3 FG%, 62.9% 2pt FG%, 32.3 3p%, 5.3 RPG, 1.1 APG, 1 SPG, .3 BPG, .8 TOs
