Robinson had a poor season last year, averaging just 10 points and nearly 3 rebounds per game. His play caused him to slip out of the Heat starting lineup that season and not get game time in the Heat’s postseason.

Commenting on being on the bench after previously starting 68 of the 79 games he appeared in during the regular season, Robinson called it a “big, big learning experience that I won’t soon forget.” will”. His bench press came as head coach Eric Spoelstra tried to end Miami’s postseason shooting weakness and Max Strus stepped on the plate.

The Heat are hoping for improved defense and consistency in their sharp-shooting big man to return to the form he was in when they signed him. Despite losing playing time, the undrafted forward remains a highlight of the Heat’s renowned player development program and it will be interesting to see how he recovers.

As the season approaches, Duncan Robinson recently spoke about Heat culture and who is the best trash talker he knows in the NBA, and he named two of his Heat teammates on his list.

In a recent crossover episode of Robinson’s The Long Shot podcast and Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye’s Road Trippin podcast, Robinson was asked about his list of the top trash talkers in the league, and one of his teammates, Jimmy Butler , was the first to come to mind.

“Jimmy is one,” Robinson said while listing some of his top NBA trash talkers. “But Jimmy, it’s interesting because you don’t know what game it’s going to be. It’s just going to be something in his head that just upsets him, and it just goes to a very dark place.

His description of trash talk being personal and leading to a very dark place suggests Butler’s trash talk could go beyond just opponents and extend to training or team situations. He also included Udonis Haslem in his roster.

With Robinson in trade rumours, it remains unclear whether or not he will be in the Heat next season. An Eastern Conference executive told what could be holding up Robinson’s trade negotiations.

“There are many things that prevent him from being traded”, said the Robinson executive. “It’s the defence, the contract, the fact that he didn’t play in the postseason. But it’s mostly just performance. What did we see of him last year? He shot 37% from the 3-point line. This is his elite ability. But I can find 50 guys who shoot better and shoot as much as him. So this ability is no longer elite.”

The executive mentioned the Utah Jazz and Portland Trail Blazers as teams that could or could work with Miami Bring it back with your core this includes Robinson.
