Trail Blazers big man Zach Collins is beginning to develop into the star player that the team hoped he’d be when they acquired him, with the Kings having taken him with the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
Collins has a lot of athleticism for a seven-footer, and he’s much bigger than many believe him to be. He’s long and doesn’t need to be close to the rim to be effective, which is perfect for today’s NBA.
And now that Jusuf Nurkic has suffered a season-ending injury, Collins’ role will surely increase big-time heading into the playoffs. He’s averaged 6.5 points and 4.2 rebounds per game so far this year, but those numbers will surely go up in the coming weeks, with Collins likely to take on an upgraded role.
Collins has been dating the beautiful Angelica Payne, and in case you haven’t seen her, you’ll want to. Here are some photos of the two of them.
