Clifford Trent Robinson (born March 13, 1960, in Oakland, California) is a retired American professional basketball player.

Professional career

His career in the National Basketball Association spanned from 1979 to 1991.

A University of Southern California alumnus, Robinson was drafted into the National Basketball Association by New Jersey Nets in 1979 with the 11th overall pick in the 1979 NBA Draft. He gave the Nets a solid rookie season, averaging 13.6 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.

In the following nine seasons, Robinson missed numerous games due to injury and was moved from team to team four times. Despite these challenges, he steadily maintained his scoring average between 15 and 20 points per game. His best season (1985-86) came in a Washington Bullets uniform, as he achieved a career-high season total of 1,460 points in 78 games played, and shot a career-best 76.2% from the free throw line. In 1986, he and Jeff Ruland were traded to the Philadelphia 76ers for NBA legend Moses Malone.

Robinson retired in 1989, hampered by injuries, but later signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, playing only nine games of the 1991-92 season.
