When John Collins fell to the Atlanta Hawks with the 19th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, he immediately became the player that many looked at as a potential for “steal” of the entire draft. He has only ramped up that noise with his Summer League play, capping it off on a high point on Wednesday with a soaring jam that will make any defender think twice about coming to the rim with him.

Collins would finish the game with a team-high 25 points, while adding nine rebounds in the loss. But his overall stock is rocketing towards the sky, much like he did during this jam against New Orleans.
