Heat Sign Big Man

Fresno State center Orlando Robinson has signed with the Miami Heat and will join the Heat's summer league roster in Las Vegas.

Robinson played three seasons in Fresno State before declaring for the draft his year. In his junior year, the 7-footer averaged 19.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks. He also has a reliable three-point shot in his arsenal, as he shot 35.2 percent from beyond the arc on nearly three attempts per game.

With a 7-foot-4 wingspan, Robinson carries great length and size to be a disruptor on the defensive side of the floor. On the other end, he possesses a well-rounded offensive game with an ability to play face up and back to the basket.

The Heat always seems to have a good eye for finding talent. Last year, they signed Omer Yurtseven to a summer league deal after the Turkish big man went undrafted in 2020. 

He eventually made the Heat roster and even earned 12 starts when Bam Adebayo was sidelined Miami went through their rough COVID stretch last season.

Las Vegas Summer League begins on Thursday, July 7, and ends Sunday, July 17.
