Thomas Robinson to opt out of Brooklyn Nets contract

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Alex Kennedy is reporting that Thomas Robinson will, like Shane Larkin, opt out of his contract.

Robinson has until June 15 to make a decision.  Of the four players Billy King gave 1+1 contracts last summer, one is already released following a buyout (Andrea Bargnani) and two others (Robinson and Larkin) are reportedly opting out. That leaves Wayne Ellington, who has a $1.57 million player option, still to be heard from. Ellington unlike the others has been working out at the HSS Training Center. He has until June 29 to decide. The Nets have to decide on Jarrett Jack's team option by June 30 as well. In addition, Sergey Karasev, an unrestricted free agent, is likely to sign in Russia.

The 6'10" Robinson played well at season's end. As the losses mounted and Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez rested, TRob got minutes, more in fact than he had ever gotten in his four years (six teams) in the league. Whether he wants to return or whether the Nets want him back is uncertain.  There had been reports earlier this off-season that the Spurs might be interested.
