6. Orlando Robinson

  • Contract: 2 years / $3.9 million (partially guaranteed)
  • 2023-24 Salary: $1.80 million (partially guaranteed)

Center Orlando Robinson inked a two-year agreement worth $3.9 million with the Heat in the summer. For the current season, Robinson's base salary amounts to $1.8 million. In terms of performance, he has been averaging 7.2 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists in 16 minutes per game. Notably, Robinson recently stepped in as the starting center in place of Bam Adebayo, who has been dealing with a hip injury and experiencing fluctuations in his playing time.

Compared to last year, Orlando has demonstrated improved floor spacing capabilities. He has been averaging 7.0 points and 5.1 rebounds, starting in the last six games due to Adebayo's injury. In a total of 198 minutes played across 11 games, the second-year big has an impressive shooting percentage of 54.5% and has made seven out of 10 attempts from beyond the arc.

Spoelstra praised Robinson's determination and resilience earlier this month, stating that he commands respect with his game. Orlando's relentless work ethic, approach, and commitment to earning the trust of everyone are evident. He consistently improves month after month and diligently studies his performance through film analysis with Heat assistant coach Malik Allen.

Robinson's dedication to perfecting his skills is truly admirable, as he willingly drills his mistakes countless times, which is highly valued by the team. His contract will be fully guaranteed on January 10th, while the second year remains non-guaranteed.
