The Blazers got the 10th pick following a trade with the Sacramento Kings that saw Portland give up the number 15 and number 20 overall picks.
Collins played in 39 games for Gonzaga at center, but did not start one of them.

Zach Collins is the most underrated player in the lottery. Heck of a power play move by the Portland Trailblazers.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) June 23, 2017
