Robinson last played in the NBA during the 2016-17 season with the Los Angeles Lakers. He appeared in 48 games and averaged 5.0 points and 4.6 rebounds while shooting 53.6 percent from the field.
Selected with the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft by the Sacramento Kings, Robinson hasn’t found success in the NBA. The now 27-year-old Kansas alum only played in 51 games with the Kings in his rookie season before Sacramento traded him to the Houston Rockets.
Robinson has also played for the Portland Trail Blazers, Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets. He holds career averages of 4.9 points and 4.8 rebounds in 313 games.
Wood, meanwhile, is a 22-year-old power forward from the University of Nevada. He signed a multi-year contract with the Sixers in 2015 after going undrafted and spent most of his time with the Sixers’ G-League team.
Philadelphia waived Wood in 2016 and the 6-11 California native signed a multi-year contract with the Charlotte Hornets. Just like with the Sixers, Wood was a G-League player with the Hornets.
Wood has appeared in 30 NBA games and has averages of 3.2 points and 2.2 rebounds, shooting 44.7 percent from the field.
The Raptors have also shown interest in free agent Greg Monroe.
