NBA Finals over and therefore NBA season over. Draft done. Betclic Elite finals it’s done. 3×3 World Cup on the verge of having given its verdict. It’s June 26 and it’s now official, the basketball world is on a break, a few buckets from the WNBA. Yes ? No.
No, because the Free Agency is approaching and because this period rhymes with breaking news. Rumors of trade, signings of obscure players with a view to the Summer League in July, and it is therefore in this idyllic setting that the following lines are written. What is information? well know that the Heat signed an undrafted pivot yesterday to strengthen the group for the Summer League, the Miami Heat therefore, and that this non-drafted pivot responds to the sweet first name… of Orlando. Orlando in Miami, it’s funny huh. And as we hear from here the laughter of the crowd, we send you the official tweet story of letter a little serious in all this.
Undrafted Fresno State center Orlando Robinson is signing with the Miami Heat, sources tell ESPN. He will join their team at summer league in Las Vegas.

Orlando Robinson in Miami is a bit like Christopher Saint-Etienne signing in Lyon, un little as if Bruno Mars was born on October 8 or as if France Gall had never taken the Eurostar, Orlando Robinson in Miami It also reminds us that Duncan Robinson never played in San Antonio. Orlando Robinson it reminds us that the young Brandon Boston has hit the Celtics twice this season but with the Clippers, Orlando Robinson in Miami it also lets us imagine that his favorite artist must probably be Florida, but, a little serious all the same : Orlando Robinson seems to be a real good “little” basketball player. In effect, this 4/5 position comes out of a season with more than 19 pawns and 8 rebounds on average with Fresno State and was considered before the Draft as one of the most effective interiors offensively of the entire vintage. However, no one showed up for this big thing of 2m11 with a crazy wingspan, and it was therefore in Las Vegas that the florida man will try to make a name for himself with the Heat.
So see you from July 7 to see what our hero of the day is doing, in the middle of a bunch of other guys whose names make us wince for the moment more than their level of play. We remind you here that the Summer League is also used to discover cracks like DJ Carton, Yannick Nzosa, Gui Santos or Luke Travers, and that is clearly, in part, why we love the month of July so much in the NBA.
