He may not have been drafted, but a solid showing in the NBA Summer League has paid off.

Duncan Robinson just needed his shot, and he got it.

As Fox Sports Morning Blitz radio host Anthony Bellino noted, Robinson has shown out in his NBA debut, playing for the Miami Heat summer league team.

It’s the same opportunity afforded to former Michigan point guard Derrick Walton, and now, according to the Miami Heat, it’s enough for Robinson to get his shot at the next level, as he’s signed a two-way deal with the NBA franchise.

Robinson has appeared in five Summer League games (all starts) with the HEAT in both Sacramento and Las Vegas and is averaging 12.4 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 25.0 minutes while shooting 57.9 percent (22-of-38) from the field and 63 percent (17-of-27) from three-point range. He connected on 5-of-6 from three-point range on July 3 against the Los Angeles Lakers in the California Classic Summer League in Sacramento and followed that by shooting 4-of-7 from beyond the arc in his next game on July 5 against the Sacramento Kings, both wins. Additionally, in his two games in Las Vegas so far, Robinson is shooting 70 percent (7-of-10) from downtown.

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.
