CBS Sports points out Atlanta is still in the mix to bring Collins back, which team owner Tony Ressler made very clear in his recent end-of-season press conference.
“Our job is to come to a fair agreement with John. That’s our objective. There should be no question,” Ressler said at the time. “He’s a really good player and maybe, more importantly, a really good person. So the idea of having both is important to this franchise. That’s my view."
Collins averaged 13.9 points, 8.7 rebounds and 35.7 percent three-point shooting in 18 postseason games.
