Brian T. Smith with some interesting speculation in his practice notes...
Udoka was then approached by Jarron Collins - who, like Udoka, is trying to win the team's 15th and final roster spot. Collins, who was wearing street clothes, walked up to Udoka, whispered something in his ear, and then walked away. Udoka looked caught off guard by the conversation, as did the Blazers assistant coach working with him. Meanwhile, Collins walked off the court - head pointed downward - waved and walked into the team's locker room. As soon as Collins left, Blazers coach Nate McMillan walked out, and said he needed to speak with Udoka. Practice was then closed.
But where was Patty Mills?!?!?!?!
Neither Udoka nor Collins looked particularly good last night, but Collins really struggled. 3 points, 3 boards, 5 fouls in 25 minutes and he was pushed around pretty thoroughly by his old Jazz mates.
