Nick Collison # 4
255 lbs
Kansas '03
Sonics '03 - 1(12)
By the time he was drafted by the Sonics, Nick Collison had already become a basketball legend during his four-year career at Kansas University. Picked by the Associated Press as First Team All-America and the Big 12 Conference Player of the Year as a senior, Collison averaged 18.5 points and 10.0 rebounds per game that season while leading Kansas to the NCAA title game. He had 19 points and 21 rebounds in that game, but Syracuse pulled out an 81-78 victory to deny the Jayhawks. Expected to contribute immediately, Collison saw his rookie season delayed when he underwent surgery on both shoulders that cost him the entire 2003-04 season. He returned to the court in 2004-05 and provided the Sonics solid performance off the bench as a rookie. Collison signed a multi-year contract extension on Oct. 31, 2006 and started 56 games during the 2006-07 seaqson, recording 18 double-doubles. His 29-point, 21-rebound game at Phoenix on Jan. 9, 2007 made him the 10th member of the Sonics 20-20 club.
