Philadelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey announced Wednesday that the team has signed former Virginia Tech guard Justin Robinson.
Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Robinson was acquired by the Delaware Blue Coats, the 76ers’ NBA G-League affiliate, last Jan. 21 off waivers.

His 6.2 assists per game ranked fourth among rookies, and he scored in double figures 26 times,
including six 20-plus point performances. Robinson also saw action in nine games at the NBA level with the Washington Wizards.
A Manassas, Va., native, Robinson played four collegiate seasons at Virginia Tech. He was named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference second team as a junior in 2018 after averaging 14.0 points, 5.6 assists and 1.2 steals in 30.9 minutes per game.
