It is almost certain that John Collins will not return to the Hawks next season. According to a new report, a source close to the 24-year-old power forward says he is done in Atlanta.
This adds further substance to a recent report that the Hawks are very likely to trade Collins this offseason. This past season he averaged 16.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 30.8 minutes per game.
It’s obvious that the Hawks view one of their pathways to getting better as trading John Collins. Everyone expects it. “He’s done in Atlanta,” a source close to Collins said.
