76ers Claim Thomas Robinson

If Thomas Robinson made plans on playing for Brooklyn, he’s going to have to put them on hold.

It was widely reported and expected that Robinson would sign a 10-day contract with the Nets after clearing waivers, but the ‘clearing waivers’ part didn’t happen. Philadelphia claimed Robinson, primarily to meet the 90-percent cap floor for the season.

Robinson makes $3.7 million this season, more than enough to cover the $3.03 million the 76ers were away from the cap floor.

Still just 23-years-old, Robinson has plenty of time to show the league why he was drafted 5th overall in 2012. Up to this point he has been a major disappointment. At least there’s not much to lose playing for Philadelphia.
