Free agent Jason Collins joins Hawks
The move comes about a week after the Hawks signed 6-foot-10 forward Joe Smith.
Hawks general manager Rick Sund said the 7-foot Collins, an eight-year veteran, will add size "and a good interior defensive presence," to the Hawks.
Sund said Collins, who played with the New Jersey Nets in the 2002 and 2003 NBA finals, also brings postseason experience.
Collins played in 31 games with Minnesota last season and averaged 1.8 points and 2.3 rebounds.
