The two sides were reportedly far apart on extension talks before the season ended, but that gap must be closing as free agency approaches.

After battling injury last season and starting slow due to his recovery from foot surgery, Robinson bounced back this past season to finish with a 76.1 field goal percentage, higher than his league-leading mark of 74.2 during the 2019-20 campaign. He averaged 8.5 points and a career-high 8.6 rebounds per game this past season.
