John Collins said he has been working on developing his 3-point shot for the 2018-19 season.
Collins only attempted one 3-pointer while playing for Wake Forest in college and shot 16-of-47 from beyond the arc during his rookie season with the Hawks. “I think it’s paying off,” Collins said. “I’m going to have confidence shooting my shot.” Collins averaged 10.5 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in only 24.4 minutes per game last season and is poised to build upon those stats as he is slated to see an increased workload and one of the primary building blocks for the Hawks.
