John Collins will be seeking to evolve as a playmaker when play resumes for the Hawks next season.
Adjusting to life next to Clint Capela will force Collins into being more perimeter-oriented, and that focus on creating for his teammates should allow him to retain early-round value, despite the likely hit he is going to take in traditional big man categories. Collins only averaged 1.5 assists in his third season before COVID-19 shut things down, and he clearly has some space to advance in that department. The fact that his 3-pointer continues to develop (1.4 on 3.6 attempts) is a good sign for his ability to facilitate from the outside.
