Knicks center Mitchell Robinson asks for help to find his missing father

New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson III isn’t only worrying about his next contract and his team’s disappointing performance before the All-Star break. On top of his work-related problems is the ongoing search for his missing father.

Robinson shared on his Snapchat and Instagram story Monday about his missing father. According to Escambia County Sheriff’s office, Mitchell Robinson, Jr., the Knicks center’s father, has been missing since February 11.



Robinson’s father is based in Pensacola, Florida, where the Knicks center played his first two years in high school before moving to New Orleans. For any information about his father’s whereabouts, the ECSO asks to contact them at 850-436-9620.

The Knicks, currently 12th in the Eastern Conference and 3.5 games outside the play-in, will need everyone, including Robinson, to lock in for their last 23 games, the fourth toughest remaining schedule, per Tankathon. It will kick off with a home game against the Eastern Conference’s best team, Miami Heat on Friday.

Robinson is averaging 8.4 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks in the final year of his rookie-scale contract. He is eligible to sign a contract extension up to four years, $55.6 million before the end of the season. Robinson will become an unrestricted free agent this summer if both parties can’t agree to a new contract.
