Coach Salerno calls him the "most prolific scorer I have seen" in three years in NBL
Brandon Robinson is re-joining the Storm.
He led the National Basketball League of Canada in scoring in 2011-12 while being named the league’s first rookie of the year while playing the Oshawa Power. He joined the Summerside Storm the following season and averaged 24.5 points per game. He played in Germany’s pro A division in 2013-14.
Robinson, who will play shooting guard/small forward, is looking forward to being back on the Island.
“It’s a home away from home for me, so my decision was easy about where I wanted to play if I was to return to Canada,” he said. “I'm ready for training camp and a great season.”
Robinson is third in career scoring in the NBL with 1,529 points in 74 games. Storm head coach Joe Salerno called it the franchise’s biggest off-season signing ever.
“Brandon has a knack for scoring the basketball and hitting big shots at crucial times in games,” said Salerno. “He really was the key to our finals run in 2012-2013 and we are just ecstatic to have him back and see him in a Storm uniform again.”
The Storm opens the regular season at home Thursday, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m. at the Eastlink Centre in Charlottetown against the Saint John Mill Rats.
