The Atlanta Hawks offered John Collins a contract extension worth more than $90 million, according to sources that spoke with The Athletic.


Collins sees himself as a maximum salary player.


Collins was one of only four players who averaged at least 20 points and 10 rebounds last season.

Collins is a max player. He’s like a slightly poor man’s version of prime Amare. He can score in a variety of ways but Atlanta really isn’t utilizing him to the best of his abilities because every play is focused on Trae Young scoring or dishing.

Yeah right comparing Collins to any version of amare is a hyperbole. Amare was a dominant force. Collins can get good numbers but he's hardly dominating anything. 90 over 4 is a good offer.

I don't agree. John Collins can easily get a 4 year 120 mill contract in the open market. Him and his agent are smart, they may as well wait till the offseason
