The jury is still out on how good Mitchell Robinson can be. Robinson has made a name for himself as a shot blocker, averaging a career 2.0 rejections per game, but has only played 75% or better a season twice in five years.
His career average of 2.9 fouls per game shows a propensity for indiscipline when contesting shots at the rim and has room to grow in his offensive production, despite being efficient from the field.
His defensive attributes make up for his current struggles, such as his 48.4% clip from the charity stripe in 2023. Many teams need interior rim protection, and Robinson could provide a solid return for New York with three years and about $43 million left.
