Terms of the deal were not disclosed, per club policy.

"We're excited to welcome Jason back to the team," said Hawks head coach Larry Drew. "He's a veteran presence in the locker room, and adds experienced depth to the frontcourt. Jason has worked hard in the offseason, and with his knowledge of the system we're implementing, he'll continue to be a valuable contributor to our club."

In 24 games last season, the 31-year-old Collins posted averages of 0.7 points and 0.6 rebounds in 4.8 minutes per contest.
