John Collins believes he can play alongside Clint Capela due to his offensive versatility.
“I have an ability to swing the ball, run the floor, shoot, create offense for myself, post up, take advantage of mismatches," he said. "[P]eople say, ‘Oh, John and Clint are similar players. They will never play with each other.’ Now that I’m shooting the ball, I feel like it helps." Collins was shooting 40.1% from deep in his 41 games this season, but he also feasted at the rim -- exactly where Capela does most of his damage. A shift away from center may not benefit Collins' fantasy value, but he's coming off a first-round fantasy campaign and owners probably won't land him outside of the top-20. May 14 11:19 am (EST)
