Jarron Collins (born December 2, 1978) is an American retired professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He is currently a college basketball analyst for Pac-12 Networks.[1]

High school career[edit]

Jarron Collins was born in Northridge, California.[2] He and his twin brother Jason, who also became an NBA player, graduated from Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles, California. Also on the team was actor Jason Segel, who starred in a slam dunk contest after Collins deferred to allow his teammate to participate.[3]

Collins shot 72 percent from the floor and averaged 13.8 points and 9.2 rebounds during his senior year in high school.[4]

College career[edit]

Collins attended Stanford University, where he was a two-time All American and finished his Stanford career in the top ten all time in four career categories: rebounds, blocked shots, field-goal percentage and games played.[5]

He was also recruited by UCLA, where he, his brother, and Earl Watson were the guests at the recruiting dinner that led to the firing of Jim Harrick at UCLA.[6]

NBA career[edit]

Collins was selected by the Utah Jazz in the second round of the 2001 NBA Draft and played eight seasons with the Jazz until becoming a free agent following the 2009 season.[7]

Collins spent the 2009 NBA preseason with the Portland Trail Blazers. He was waived by Portland, but then claimed off waivers by the Phoenix Suns.[8]

Collins later joined the Los Angeles Clippers, signing a 10-day contract on January 7, 2011. He renewed his tenure, later signing another 10-day contract on January 17, 2011. On March 1, 2011, he signed a 10-day contract with the Portland Trail Blazers,[9] and was released after finishing a second ten-day contract. He retired from basketball after the season.[10]

As of 2013, he was working for the Los Angeles Clippers as a scout.[11]
