Agent: John Collins deals with Hawks for $ 125 million

Restricted free agent forward John Collins has agreed to a five-year, $ 125 million deal to stay with the Atlanta Hawks, agents Sean Kennedy and Jeff Schwartz told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal includes a player option in the fifth year, according to Wojnarowski.

It’s the latest lucrative deal this season for the Hawks, who also agreed to a five-year, $ 207 million extension with star guard Trae Young.

The 23-year-old Collins was an integral part of Atlanta’s push to the Eastern Conference finals last season as he changed his style of play to suit what the Hawks needed.

In the 2019-20 season, Collins averaged 21.6 points and 10.1 rebounds per game. Last season, those numbers fell to 17.6 and 7.4, but Atlanta was more successful on the team with Collins playing alongside center Clint Capela.

Collins also provided a 3-point threat, hitting his 3s by 39.9 percent.

During the playoffs, Collins’ score was just 13.9 points per game as he was asked to handle more defensive responsibilities.

Collins was selected by the Hawks with the 19th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft after playing two seasons at Wake Forest.
