25-under-25: John Collins at No. 13



Article Summary:

John Collins has become one of the best offensive big men in the NBA. Is that enough to help take the Hawks to the next level?

It would be unavailing to try and categorize John Collins within the broader positional category of big men.

John Collins can do almost everything on offense, which is perfect for the Atlanta Hawks

It’s not just that Collins is a devastating roll man, or a 40 percent 3-point shooter, or an adept finisher through contact, or an efficient scorer in virtually every capacity that makes him an elite offensive player.

Because he’s such a persistent off-ball worker, Collins is a scoring threat even when he doesn’t have the ball and a tailor-made partner for a ball-dominant playmaker like Young. Among players who touched the ball at least 50 times per game last season, Young had the second-highest time of possession per game in the entire league; Collins had the lowest.
