Reports: Glenn Robinson III agrees to deal with Detroit Pistons

According to Shams Charania, free agent Glenn Robinson III has agreed to a 2-year, $8.3 million deal with the Detroit Pistons. The second year is a team option.

The former slam dunk champion missed most of last season with an ankle injury after being a breakout candidate during the summer. He played spot minutes with the Pacers once he returned and was out of the rotation in the playoffs.

Robinson, who will return to the Michigan where he played his college ball, showed flashes of potential as a 3&D player during his time with Indiana, but the preseason injury took away his best opportunity.

Robinson, still just 24, shot 41.3% from 3-point range last season and is a career 38% from distance.

Once the Pacers agreed to a deal with Doug McDermott, it seemed unlikely that the Pacers would be bringing him back, though he never seemed like a large priority for the team this offseason.
