Mardy Collins - Collins's rookie contract expired without fanfare this summer, and he was passed over in the free agency market. He signed with the Wizards for training camp, but eventually did not attend due to a wrist injury, and has been unsigned since. Collins's NBA career did not go particularly well; his positional crisis never got resolved, and in 189 career games, he returned a career PER of only 7.9, indicative of his struggles. He really needs to land somewhere secure, get in a good body of work, and put up significant production for the first time since college.

Mardy Collins - In 189 career games and 2,771 career minutes spread across two teams, Mardy Collins proved throughout the duration of his rookie contract that he can't play. His career PER is 7.9, and peaked at only 9.5 in his sophomore year, which is still significantly below average. He's not really a point, nor is he really a two, nor can he shoot, and nor could he get to the basket like he could at Temple. That leaves you with a ball dominant player who is not good enough to dominate the ball in the NBA. It's a tough sell.
