Charlotte Bobcats withdraw offer to Sherron Collins after undrafted rookie misses two flights

March 7, 2011


— Two missed flights have ended guard Sherron Collins' chance of returning to the Charlotte Bobcats.

Coach Paul Silas says they planned to bring back the undrafted rookie from Kansas after waiving him, but withdrew the offer last week after Collins missed two flights the team had arranged from his hometown of Chicago.

The Bobcats filled the roster spot Monday by signing guard Garrett Temple of the NBA Development League to a 10-day contract. Silas says he'll be the No. 3 point guard behind D.J. Augustin and Shaun Livingston.

Collins had been in that role, averaging less than a point in 20 games. But Silas says after the second missed flight, "That was kind of it."

Collins was waived Feb. 24 after two trades left Charlotte with 18 players.

Why Sherron? You still had a chance to stay with an NBA team full time. I still wish you well and also still have to thank you for your time with the Hawks.

Talk about throwing away a Golden Ticket....certainly Coach Self taught you better than that.

I don't know the whole story, but if the Bobcats wanted him so bad then why did they waive him? Maybe he's gotten interest from somewhere else or......?

Regardless, good luck Sherron.
