John Collins    F  Hawks

 

 

John Collins said his main goal during Las Vegas Summer League was to prove to everyone he should have gone higher on draft day. "I wanted to prove that I should have went higher," said Collins. "Not to say that I’m not happy with the spot I’ve fallen. I’ve fallen to great spot... but I want to prove to everybody that I should have went higher. I’ve been overlooked most of my career. So I’m kind of happy, because it gives me that same energy, that same fear and drive." Collins turned some heads with his play at Summer League, so he's a guy we'll be watching very closely over the course of training camp and preseason.

John Collins    F  Hawks

 

 

John Collins scored seven points in 15 minutes against the Rockets on Friday, adding five rebounds, one assist and two turnovers. That's a wrap for arguably the most impressive rookie big man in Summer League. Collins did get limited minutes because there was nothing left for him to prove, but he still managed yet another dunk and had a terrific and-one play -- he also almost put Zhou Qi on a poster (video in link below). Due to how Paul Millsap said the Hawks never made a serious offer to him, the Hawks likely drafted Collins with hopes he would be their four man of the future. So far, so good.

Diamond Stone    C  Hawks

 

 

Diamond Stone scored 12 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover against the Rockets on Friday. It was his best game and he took it to Zhou Qi on the low block. Stone is only going to be asked to play the five spot for the Hawks, and Atlanta may have the worst group of centers in the NBA. In other words, a strong camp from Stone could lead to minutes.

DeAndre Bembry    F  Hawks

 

 

Taurean Prince, DeAndre Bembry and Tyler Dorsey will not play Friday against the Rockets. Get read for a lot of rest today. Every team playing on Friday will have their last game in the consolation bracket. As for Bembry, his time in Vegas has been a success and his improved ball handling and perimeter defense should help him get minutes on the wing. Keep an eye on him in deeper leagues.

Ersan Ilyasova    F  Hawks

 

 

Ersan Ilyasova and the 76ers have agreed to a one-year, $6.0 million deal, according to Shams Charania. Mike Muscala is expected to have an expanded role this year and much of that should come at center, where Atlanta would otherwise rely on Dewayne Dedmon and Miles Plumlee. Either way, Ilyasova isn't a high-upside fantasy target after averaging 10.4 points, 1.2 triples and 5.8 rebounds with Atlanta last year. His arrival also allows John Collins to develop slower, but expect him to overtake Ersan as the season progresses.

John Collins    F  Hawks

 

 

John Collins racked up the highlights against the Pelicans on Wednesday, scoring 25 points with nine rebounds, one steal, one block, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 25 minutes. He may have turned in the best dunk of Las Vegas Summer League when he stuffed it over Cheick Diallo (video in link below). Collins is destroying defenders as a roll man and he's had some nice shooting touch, as well. His defense isn't quite up to par yet, but he's been in the right place most of the time. Collins looks like he'll be in the rotation and it wouldn't be a total shock to see him start. He's been one of the best players in Vegas.

Tyler Dorsey    G  Hawks

 

 

Dorsey won't play during Wednesday's summer league matchup against the Pelicans due to a sprained right ankle, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

RT @10anj10: 親を憎んでいる人よりも、わが親は完璧だ、私も親の言う通り子育てしよう、と思っている人の方が危ういことはままある。親が欠点もある他人だということを認められず、自分が親と同じにさえなれば愛される、何があっても悪いのは親じゃないと思い込んでしまう子は多い。
被安打は1やのに四球は5か 向こうの打線も調子悪いんやから警戒しすぎやんとストライク先行で行って欲しいわ
