20130323 Glenn Robinson III

In Chad Ford’s first mock draft for ESPN, he has the Milwaukee Bucks selecting Glenn Robinson III, who as you can probably guess, is the son of Bucks legend Glenn “Big Dog” Robinson. His explanation:

Analysis: The Bucks don’t have a lot going for them right now at the small forward position — especially since sending Tobias Harris out of town in the J.J. Redick deal. Robinson would give them yet another long, athletic forward who can fly up and down the floor. The difference with Robinson? He can shoot, and let’s face it, there’s some karma at play here, too. The Bucks drafted Robinson III’s father with the No. 1 pick in 1994. Keep it in the family.

As a freshman, Robinson shot 57% from the floor and averaged 11 PPG while helping to carry Michigan to the national championship. Personally, I think he’d be a huge steal if he were to fall to the Bucks, and not just because of his name.

There is, of course, the issue that Robinson III has to enter the draft first for the Bucks to have a shot.
