The Boston Celtics have interest in trading for John Collins, though the asking price from the Atlanta Hawks may be prohibitive for them. The Hawks are seeking a first round pick and/or a talented young player.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have also been linked to Collins with ESPN's Jackie MacMullan indicating last week that they had serious interest.

Collins will be a restricted free agent.

For the Celtics, Harrison Barnes is likely a more realistic target.
