He may not have been drafted, but the versatile F will have his shot.

Although the former Big Ten Sixth Man of the Year would have liked it to go differently.

However, considering that this is exactly how Derrick Walton made it to the NBA, and with the same exact team, his former teammate Duncan Robinson has to be thrilled to get an opportunity, playing in the NBA Summer League with the Miami Heat.

Robinson, a senior last year, came into the season as a starter, but quickly lost his status to true freshman Isaiah Livers after some early season struggles. Shots weren’t going down as they once were, and he was a liability on the defensive side of the court.

However, he turned things around in a big way coming off the bench. He bought into what Coach Luke Yaklich was selling – namely, defense – and found his stroke once again in the process.

Robinson played in 115 games with the Wolverines after having transferred from D-III Williams, where he played in that level’s championship game, and set school records for minutes played, steals, blocks, free throw percentage, three point percentage and points made and points scored.

At Michigan, he averaged just over 9 points a game and had a career 0.419 three point percentage and a 0.455 field goal percentage.
