Few Thing You Need To Know About Stanley Robinson
Stanley Earl Robinson was born July 14, 1988, he was a UConn legend & American professional basketball player for Español de Talca of the Liga Nacional de Básquetbol de Chile.
He primarily played the small forward position but occasionally assumed the role of a power forward as well.
Stanley was selected with the 59th overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft by the Orlando Magic. On August 16, 2010, Robinson signed a non-guaranteed, one-year contract with the Magic. However, Robinson was waived following the conclusion of training camp in October 2010/
In 2011–2012 season, Robinson played with the Iowa Energy of the NBA Development League.
On October 17, 2013, Robinson signed with the Moncton Miracles of the National Basketball League of Canada (NBL). However, on February 5, 2014, he was released due to an injury. Robinson resigned with the Miracles on September 25 of that year.
Robinson who had a 6-foot-9, grabbed seven rebounds, was drafted late in the second round by the Magic in 2010, and was one of the last players cut in camp. Then he spent some time in the D-League, but lost time with a staph infection. Then he tore his Achilles tendon.
For the past two seasons he has played in Canada with the Moncton Miracle. He averaged 24 minutes, 12.8 rebounds and 7.0 rebounds this past season.
“Canada is a great place,” Robinson said. “It’s competitive. I’ve given it two years. But I feel like, with my talent, I can play in a better league.”
For Robinson, 27, that means Europe or Asia, places that pay higher salaries. “Wherever pays the most money,” said Robinson, who has his family back in Alabama. He will be working this summer, for the second year in a row, for Bill Barker’s Hoop Dream camp in Madison
Robinson missed a dunk early in the first quarter, and grimaced. “Man, I wanted that one,” he said. But he got the next one, and scored 22 of his points over the last three quarters. He was active at both ends, getting a couple of blocked shots along the way.
