Glenn Robinson III is reportedly open to reuniting with the Warriors next season.

The 26-year-old forward was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers last month along with Alec Burks in exchange for three second round picks.

Robinson spoke with NBC Bay Area after the Dubs beat his new squad and didn’t close the door on coming back to the Bay Area.

“Would I rule out? Not with this organization,” Robinson said. “They were really great to me, and like I said, really changed my career, so it’s no bad feelings, no hard love for Golden State.”

Robinson put up 12.9 points and 4.7 rebounds during his brief time with the Dubs. He was playing meaningful minutes and seemed to enjoy his responsibility under head coach Steve Kerr.

“My role on the Warriors was, I was guarding the best player every night. I was coming off shooting threes and getting my game to help the team,” Robinson said. “What can I do best here? That’s my main goal, my main thought. Obviously, the other stuff that lingers in your head is your value of this summer, but I try to just take it one day at a time because that’s all I can control at this point.”

The upcoming unrestricted free agent has seen a dip in his production since joining the 76ers. He is averaging 7.7 points and 3.0 rebounds with Philly and has admitted to struggling with the change of teams.

“It can be frustrating,” Robinson said. “I know I was brought here to help the team win, but now I’m trying to figure out the best way possible to help the team win. What I can do with my role?”

If the Warriors are interested in bringing back Robinson next season, he would obviously fit in as a depth piece with a healthy Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, coupled with Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins.

Do you think the Dubs should look at bringing back Robinson?
