Collins has also been linked to the Suns and a few others. Per Charania, Utah “has made an inquiry and has shown interest in recent weeks and months.”

Collins, 25, is 6-foot-9 and averaging 12.6 points and 7.7 rebounds, shooting a career-worst 23 percent on 3-pointers. He is in the second season of a five-year, $125 million contract — identified as a potential issue in a trade.
