John Collins made a name for himself by being a top-notch star for the Atlanta Hawks.
He averaged 15.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game over six seasons with the Hawks.
Despite being a top-notch player for the Hawks, they traded Collins to the Utah Jazz earlier this summer.
Collins was sent to the Jazz for Rudy Gay and a second-round draft pick in July 2023.
It was truly one of the most shocking trades during the offseason.
Collins will now play for the Jazz and wear No. 20 for the organization.
The trade is still something that most fans cannot believe in that Collins is a member of the Jazz.
It was evident from the fans’ reaction during his birthday celebration on Twitter.
As for the next chapter for Collins, he is part of the rebuilding project for the Jazz.
Since the Jazz have gone into a rebuilding phase since trading Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, they will undoubtedly struggle to be a contender in the Western Conference.
