ROANOKE, Va. – On Monday the Oklahoma City Thunder signed former Virginia Tech Hokies guard, Justin Robinson, to a 10-Day contract.

The Manassas native most recently helped lead the Delaware Blue Coats to the NBA G-League Finals this season-- starting in 13 games and averaging 15 points, 3 rebounds and nearly 6 assists per contest.

In a Twitter post Robinson said, “GLORY BE TO GOD.”

You may recall that the Virginia Tech product appeared in nine games with the Washington Wizards during the 2019-2020 season. He then would split time between the Capital City Go-Go and Delaware Blue Coats G-League organizations this season.

Robinson joins a Thunder team that has a handful of ACC talents in Tony Bradley (UNC), Justin Jackson (UNC) and Ty Jerome (UVa).
