Default Hawks Sign Jason Collins

The Hawks signed veteran center Jason Collins on Wednesday, fortifying their frontcourt rotation with another big man a week after signing Joe Smith to a one-year deal.

Like Smith, Collins, an eight-year veteran, signed a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum. He gives the Hawks 12 players under contract for the coming season.

Collins has started 429 games, with averages of 4.2 points and 4.3 rebounds. He also has played in 75 playoff games — and with young teammates Josh Smith and Al Horford, he can add the role of mentor to his extensive resume.

“I think that’s the role of any good veteran player,” Collins said. “You have to help the young guys. I tried to do that in Minnesota last year, challenging Al Jefferson every day in practice.

Good shit.
