Glenn Robinson III joins the Pacers

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – After a tumultuous first season in the NBA, Gary native Glenn Robinson III is eager for a new start.

“It was rough at the beginning,” said Robinson.

The 21-year-old was introduced to the Indianapolis media on Tuesday afternoon after signing a three year deal with the Pacers.

“Definitely grateful for the opportunity,” said Robinson.  “ I love Indiana, great place to play, playing high school basketball and definitely a great fan base.”

In the past 12 months, Robinson has played for three different teams, the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Atlanta Hawks during NBA summer league.  He’s leaned heavily on his father, Purdue legend Glenn Robinson, for advice and guidance; the elder Robinson played 11 seasons in the NBA.

“His confidence. He talks to me about confidence all the time,” said Robinson of the best advice he’s received from his dad. “That’s something that really helps me with the year I had last year. Not getting a chance to play too much, a lot of people would’ve shut down, but he really helped me build the confidence up.”
