John Collins thanks Atlanta and fans, adds ‘my growth here is stunting’

Rate this post


John Collins’ role had been diminishing for years in Atlanta. He was disappearing from the offense, as evidenced by the drop in his usage rate in each of the last four years. He wasn’t doing anything on the court to change that dynamic either, so this offseason the Hawks finally traded Collins in a salary-offloading move to Utah.

Collins said goodbye to Atlanta in an Instagram post that included him saying he felt his growth in Atlanta was “stunted.”
ATL…I know…I took my time with this one. But this one definitely hurt. Being thrown into this fire when he was a child, having no idea of ​​the journey that lay ahead of him. It’s amazing how 6 years can fly by. Atlanta, thank you for the style, the culture, the LOVE and thank you for embracing the child with open arms. Atlanta, thank you for never taking it easy. Because I’m proud to leave you as a man! 🍑❤️

To the Organization. Thank you for sticking with me, even at my lowest point. Thank you for allowing me a place to grow. But as I see, it’s time for these hawks to fly away from the nest. While my growth here is stunting. 🕊️

To all my brothers and OGs that I have been lucky enough to share the court with, you all know how I am rocking….🤞🏽4L

Collins will have a chance to show that he is stunted and can do more in his new home in Utah, where he will run a lot on a big front line with Walker Kessler and Lauri Markkanen. However, lurking in the background is newly drafted Taylor Hendricks, who the Jazz believe could be their long-term future among the four. As Hendricks develops, he will have more opportunities due to his projected defense and his ability to hit the three, things the Jazz want to see from Collins.

Collins has three years and $78.5 million guaranteed on his contract, with the final year being a player option.
