No extension for Zach Collins

Collins, the 10th overall pick of the 2017 draft, is among the players eligible for a rookie-scale extension by December 21st. However, the 23-year-old big man and Portland will conduct discussions on a long-term contract after the season. “Neil and I have talked quite a bit about Zach, and there’s no question how strongly the Blazers feel about him,” agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports told HoopsHype. “We both feel that an extension probably just doesn’t make sense at this time based on Zach not having a chance to play as much last year due to his injuries. Everyone’s focus right now is on getting Zach back to full health and having a terrific season, and then Neil and I will sit down and get to work on a contract this summer.”

Teams have called about Zach Collins

It is a testament to Collins’ work ethic, likability, and potential that the same plotline has not befallen him after he lost last season to shoulder surgery and then ankle surgery. Other teams have called, assuming Collins is Portland’s main trade chip. Portland’s veterans are fine waiting longer — waiting to see if Collins becomes the rare 7-footer who shoots 3s and protects the rim.
