NBA Scouting Reports, Southwestern Division (Part One)
May 15, 2008
Overview: Collins has established himself in the league on the strength of his positional defense and overall understanding of team defensive schemes. Collins has never been much of a threat on the offensive end (to say the least), but moves well through the sets. Collins best utility is his size and ability to provide 6 fouls and consistent interior defense against opposing centers. He would probably have a better chance to play if he were at least an average rebounder, which heís not.

Offense: Collins has a very marginal offensive repertoire, working best in pick-and-roll situations, offensive rebounds, and cuts to the basket. Collins has never developed any sort of face-up game to speak of, as you can probably guess by his mediocre percentages from the free throw line. Heís an unreliable spot-up shooter, fairly turnover prone relative to his limited touches, and doesnít have the ball handling skills to create any kind of offense for himself. Overall, extremely limited on this end. He actually had the distinction of ranking statistically as the second worst per-minute scorer in the NBA, behind only Eric Snow.

Defense: This is the side of the ball where Collins has made his career mark. Collins isnít very fleet of foot, but he uses great technique to challenge his opponents. Collins has great fundamental footwork and keeps excellent spacing between his man and the ball-handler when defending off-ball. Collins is very smart when defending on-ball. Against back to the basket opponents he uses his wide body and a low base to keep from being backed down in the post. Collins typically knows his assignments well enough to know how much space to give them on face-up shots. He wonít over-crowd a quicker opponent or give shooters shots in his comfort zone. Collins also uses his fouls intelligently. He is a mediocre rebounder, though, which makes it very difficult for him to get on the floor considering how little he brings to the table offensively already.
