Why Steve Kerr Would Love Glenn Robinson III on Warriors Long Term

Warriors forward Glenn Robinson III quietly is having a very solid season.

The 25-year-old has started all 17 games, and is averaging career highs in points (11.2), rebounds (5.1), assists (1.9), steals (0.9), field goal percentage (47.8), free throw percentage (89.5), and minutes (31.4). 

He's also shooting over 39 percent from 3-point territory on a career-high 3.0 attempts per game.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr would love to have Robinson on the Warriors beyond this season, but it's way too early to tell how things will shake out.

"In the meantime, it's a good season for Glenn to remind the league what he can do, and increase his own value," Kerr told reporters Sunday after practice. "We're getting a great look at him, and he's somebody we would love to be able to hang on to long-term.

"You never know how that stuff goes."

Robinson -- who signed a one-year minimum contract worth just under $1.9 million -- will be an unrestricted free agent next summer.

The 2017 NBA Slam Dunk Contest champion is giving the Warriors just what they expected.

"He's actually exactly what I thought he was," Kerr said. "In training camp, we got a look at his ability to cut and pass and move. Maybe that was something I didn't know about him.

"But I knew he was a big wing, I knew he was a good teammate, I knew he could make 3s -- even though his percentage last year was not great -- we knew he would shoot better with consistent minutes.

"Just very, very professional and fits the modern game well. We're lucky to have him."
