Zach Collins says he's ready to start, "I want to be a strong starter in this league. I think I'm ready for it."
This is interesting news for the Blazers as they announced that Moe Harkless won't be fully healthy for the start of training camp. That equates to an opening in the starting frontcourt and Collins is starting to box out the competition. If Harkless is still sidelined by the start of the season expect Terry Stotts to pick from Collins, Caleb Swanigan or Evan Turner as the starter alongside Al-Farouq Aminu.
