John Collins
ATLANTA -- Atlanta Hawks second-year forward/center John Collins (208-PF-97, college: Wake Forest) was selected as participants in the 2019 MTN DEW ICE NBA Rising Stars on Friday, Feb. 15 at 10 p.m.

Collins, the No. 19 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, leads all sophomores in double-doubles (19) and has two separate six-game double-double streaks this season. The Wake Forest product is averaging 19.5 points and 10.0 rebounds this season, making him one of just eight players posting at least 19.5 points and 10.0 boards in 2018-19. The big man is shooting .595 from the field this season, 7th in the NBA and the second-best mark of all-time among second-year players to average at least 19 points and 10 rebounds per contest (Shaquille O'Neal - .599 in 1993-94).

Collins posted 11 double-doubles in 12 December contests, averaging 21.3 points and 12.8 rebounds per game. He became the second Hawks player ever to average at least 21.0 points and 12.5 rebounds in a month (Kevin Willis twice) and the first Atlanta player with a 20-point/10-rebound month since Paul Millsap in December 2013.

On 1/23 at Chicago, Collins tallied a career-high 35 points (career-best 14 FGM, career-high-tying four 3FGM, 3-3 FTs) in 29 minutes. He became the third player since 1979-80 to record at least 35 points, 14 FGM, eight rebounds and four three-pointers in less than 30 minutes, joining Larry Bird in 1986 and Stephen Curry in 2017.

Collins and Trae Young will become the second pair of Hawks teammates to participate in the annual showdown in two years, as Collins teamed with Taurean Prince in last season's contest.
