Hawks sign F Robinson

The Atlanta Hawks signed former fifth-overall pick Thomas Robinson on Thursday, the team announced.

Robinson, 27, played last season for BC Khimki in Russia, where he averaged 8.5 points and 5.7 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game, after bouncing around between six NBA teams from 2012 to 2017.

A star at Kansas, Robinson was taken in the 2012 draft by the Sacramento Kings, but he was traded to the Houston Rockets before finishing his rookie season. He was then dealt to the Portland Trail Blazers, where he spent a year and a half, before bouncing to Denver (for whom he never played), Philadelphia, Brooklyn and most recently the Los Angeles Lakers in 2016-17.

In five NBA seasons, Robinson has averaged 4.9 points and 4.8 rebounds in 13.4 minutes per game across 313 games. He averaged 5.0 points and 4.6 rebounds in 11.7 minutes for the Lakers in his most recent season.
