— Former Kansas guard Sherron Collins scored two points on 1-for-2 shooting in the Charlotte Bobcats summer league team’s 86-85 victory over Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

Collins contributed two assists and one turnover in 10 minutes. After committing six fouls on Monday, Collins had just one personal Tuesday.

The 5-foot-11 Collins’ only action came in the second quarter, as he played the entire 10-minute period.

Rick Bonnell, the Charlotte Bobcats’ beat writer for the Charlotte Observer newspaper, reported on the Observer’s website that Collins’ limited playing time Tuesday “ ... wasn’t a demotion, so much as the Bobcats wanting to distribute some minutes to Jeremy Pargo and Denis Clemente. However the Bobcats would like Collins to lose about 10 pounds.”

The former Kansas State guard Clemente didn’t put up a shot in 12 minutes. He finished with an assist, two turnovers and five fouls.

Pargo, who is the third point guard in the Bobcats’ rotation, scored seven points on 3-for-5 shooting in 18 minutes. He also added three assists and three turnovers and hit the game-winning shot as time expired.

Sherron Collins again is on the winning side! Good shooting percentage and less fouls will show he belongs in the NBA. Even if Sherron's 5-11 frame scares many scouts his ability attracts the rest of us. It's hard to stop a great player because at some point critics start to praise your talents.

Sherron Collins is a special player. I think you have to be blind not to see that he can play.

He is the kind of guy fans are going to love.

Mario got the big shot, but he knows who got him in position to win that game.

He also volunteered and chewed up Derrick Rose. Uh Uh yaw forgot about that. Larry Brown is looking for the intangibles where he can develope a player that will impose his will from the bench. Sherron is the right man better go ask Coach Self.

Collins is way over rated. A ball hog who drives into the lane and gets stuffed, falls apart in clutch playoff games, yet still insists that its 'his' team. I think the pro scouts know what they are doing.
