Report: Collins agrees to 5-year deal to stay with Hawks


The Atlanta Hawks didn't let restricted free agent John Collins test the market long as the two sides reportedly came to a deal on Wednesday.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Collins has agreed to a five-year, $125 million deal to stay with the Hawks.

The deal includes a player option in the fifth year for Collins.

It also means he'll be in Atlanta alongside teammate Trae Young for at least four years. The Hawks signed the All-Star point guard to a five-year designated rookie maximum extension worth up to $207 million on Monday.
