Free agency is upon us!

Norman Powell along with Carmelo Anthony, Zach Collins, and Enes Kanter were the notable Trail Blazer free agents heading into this offseason.

As reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Collins has agreed to a three-year, $22M deal with the San Antonio Spurs.

Portland traded the 15th and 20th overall picks in the 2017 NBA Draft to trade up to select the Gonzaga big man at No. 10. 

 

But over his four-year career, Collins has dealt with injury after injury. 

Inside the Orlando bubble last summer, an ankle ailment ended his season. He averaged 7.0 points and 6.3 rebounds per game in 26.4 minutes in 11 games played and started in 2019-20.

Collins "underwent a second revision surgery to repair a left medial malleolus stress fracture" on June 29th, the Blazers announced.

In 154 career games in his first three years in the league, Collins averaged 5.7 points on 44.4 percent shooting to go along with 4.9 rebounds.

Collins’ now former teammates have been sending him love on social media.   

Good luck in San Antonio, Big-Z!
