During Summer League play, Portland Trail Blazer Zach Collins gave an interview to Jared Greenberg of NBATV. Collins talked about preparing for the upcoming season, as roster moves may have opened up the potential for more time on the court for the third year player. Collins said he wants to get his body in shape and polish his skills, whether or not the opportunity is there.
Collins also spoke about the opportunity to learn via experience by reaching the third round of the playoffs with the Trail Blazers. According to Collins, the biggest lesson he learned was to develop consistency. Asked about Meyers Leonard, he expressed the sentiment that the locker room would miss Leonard, but that everyone wishes him well with the Miami Heat.
