   2010 Summer League Rosters: Phoenix Suns

Dwayne Collins

As a third stringer slightly undersized centre in an up-tempo system, Collins should do quite well. Regardless of his lack of size, Collins goes and gets rebounds; regardless of the tempo you play it, you need rebounds. Collins's offense at this point is pretty much only the finishing of easy ones, but Steve Nash is his point guard now. Easy ones will be there.

   Sham's 2010 NBA Draft Night Recap, Part 2

Pick 60: After 4 and a half hours and about 20,000 words, it's finally time for the final pick.

Dwayne Collins (60th pick, 2010)

- Phoenix's other unsigned pick has also suffered from injuries. Collins signed with Italian team Varese early on in the summer transfer market, but has not played all season. He missed time in his senior season due to a back injury, then an ankle injury, and then a stress reaction in his leg, and then a week before the draft - at the most inopportune time - Collins had surgery to repair a torn meniscus that ruled him out of summer league. The reason cited for his absence this season has been a rather non-descript "knee injury," or so says my limited Italian. It is not clear whether it is the same injury. If it is, maybe the surgery wasn't as minor as first though. By being a senior drafted only 60th, the self proclaimed Mr Irrelevant only had a limited window in which to make it in the first place; if too many injuries prevent him from developing offensively, that window could shut quickly.

Chances of making the NBA expressed as an arbitrary percentage: 10%
