NBA Draft 2012: Thomas Robinson Signs With Sacramento Kings

Former Kansas Jayhawks star Thomas Robinson has inked a contract with the Sacramento Kings, who made him the fifth overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the team announced Monday. The terms of the deal were undisclosed, but more details should be available soon.

Robinson is considered to be one of the more NBA-ready players in this year's draft class, with a chiseled frame that should serve him well at the power forward position, and parts of his game that allow him to step away from the post and display his versatility on the perimeter.

SB Nation's own Andrew Sharp mentioned after the draft that Robinson isn't necessarily good enough to be a superstar on his own, but within the team concept, he can certainly contribute in a major way.
