"Last year it was Abe Pollin's widow and this year it was a 14-year-old boy and the only thing we have in common is we have both been bar mitzvahed. We were done." - David Kahn on why he didn't win the lottery

   Anybody Wanna See Second Prize? Second Prize Is A Set Of Steak Knives.....

Collins played with the Suns last year, doing his customary thing of neither rebounding nor scoring, just playing the intangible defense that can't be measured statistically. This is fine in theory, although it led to rather unattractive +/- numbers, and a PER of a career low 3.8. This, however, still doesn't touch Jake Voskuhl's career low PER of 0.4, set in 2008/09 with the Raptors, a season in which he had 60 fouls and 35 points. Voskuhl did not play anywhere last season, and really needs to catch a second wind. He is still only 32, so one is possible; he was a reasonable enough player for many years for one to be possible. If he does not make the team, he will allegedly go to the D-League.

   Top 101 NBA Ten-Day Contract Candidates (When 20 Would Probably Have Been Enough)

Jarron Collins - Collins made the Clippers roster in training camp, but did the usual Collins thing of having no statistical production whatsoever. He averaged 4.1 points, 3.3 rebounds and 5.6 fouls per 36 minutes, shooting 33% from the field and putting up a PER of 1.3. Coaches love the Collins's for the things that don't show up in the stat sheet, but when absolutely nothing shows up in the stat sheet, you can't overlook it all.

   15 More Ten Day Contract Candidates (Because Apparently 101 Wasn't Enough After All)

In some additional related bookkeeping, the reason for many of the players listed in the previous list was due to the NBA's contract guarantee date. All players on NBA rosters on or after January 10th have their contracts guaranteed for the remainder of the season (future seasons are unaffected); this also includes waivers. In-season waivers are 48 hours long and do not include weekends; therefore, with the 10th of January being a Monday, players had to be waived by close of business on Wednesday 5th in order to have cleared waivers before the deadline date.

Eleven players with not fully guaranteed contracts were waived in the hours before that deadline: Steve Novak, Damien Wilkins, Jarron Collins, John Lucas III, Ime Udoka, Lester Hudson, Ronald Dupree, Brian Skinner, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Sundiata Gaines and Rodney Carney. Twenty seven unguaranteed players survived; Delonte West, Von Wafer, Brian Scalabrine, Samardo Samuels, Manny Harris, Alonzo Gee, Brian Cardinal, Melvin Ely, Gary Forbes, Jeremy Lin, Ish Smith, A.J. Price, Ike Diogu, Luc Richard Mbah A Moute, Ben Uzoh, Didier Ilunga-Mbenga, Shawne Williams, Malik Allen, Garret Siler, Patty Mills, Sean Marks, Darnell Jackson, Chris Quinn, Sonny Weems, Jeremy Evans, Cartier Martin and Hamady Ndiaye. Players with contracts who had already become guaranteed due to specific guarantee stipulations in their contracts were Sherron Collins, Derrick Brown, Josh McRoberts, Willie Warren, Derrick Caracter, Luther Head and Joey Dorsey.

   The best of what's left after what was the best of what's left has gone and is no longer left

- Jarron Collins * - With Jason having signed with Atlanta, Jarron will probably die of loneliness. I think that's how it works. Unless I'm confuusing the Collins twins with parakeets.

   The best of what's left

Jason and Jarron Collins - The two are listed together for the simple reason that they're identical in every way. Jason used to be considerably better, but he's not now - not since Kiefer Sutherland and Eddie Izzard have two different people been so identical in every way. Both are little things players, big and versatile defenders, charge-takers and heartbreakers; neither can score or rebound. Both put up absolutely dreadful numbers when measured by any conventional metrics. Coaches continue to love them anyway for their "intangibles." Jason is said to have agreed to re-sign in Atlanta, but hasn't done so yet. For this reason, they are candidates for your team, regardless of whether you want them to be.

EDIT: Jason's re-signing with Atlanta is now official. This, by default, makes Jarron hotter property. Buy early to avoid disappointment.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
