The forward was the 19th overall pick by the Hawks in the 2017 NBA Draft.
On the daily Locked On Hawks podcast, Brad Rowland talked about the reported news and does not believe it will happen. However, Rowland does not see the conversation hovering around Collins going away.
“This is a situation that is not likely to fade away though because, naturally, if the Hawks are listening - and they seem to be - it is not going to just stop happening,” Rowland said. “We will probably have a Collins trade rumor at some point in time, another one besides this. So, strap in for that.”
“My stance right now is that I expect for Collins to not be moved and I believe we should downplay this at this current time,” Rowland added.
