Sherron Collins' NBA D-League Assignment Might've Happened Like This

Earlier today, Sherron Collins was assigned to the NBA Development League's Maine Red Claws (as first reported on FanHouse Wednesday night). This might be how it happened.

Sherron Collins had an amazing NCAA career while playing at Kansas, as he was twice named to the All-Big 12 First Team and also earned the Big 12 Tournament's Most Outstanding Player award as a senior. Collins is also the winningest player in Kansas history with 130 victories, having helped the Jayhawks to a 2008 national championship victory and three Big 12 Tournament titles.

Unfortunately, the diminutive guard also had a bit of an eating problem, leading one website (this one) to ask if he might be the next Byron Eaton.  Collins never ended up following the Eaton career plan (get cut two games into your rookie year by a D-League team and then decide playing in the Japanese BJ-League with Robert Swift and Jeremy Tyler is your best option the following season), though it does seem that eatin' was a plan that Collins did follow as the picture above will illustrate.

While Collins has always struggled with his conditioning, he's also struggled with his shot-making in the NBA as he's hit just one of his eight shot attempts thus far, with that one coming in an 18 point loss to the Philadelphia 76ers over the weekend.

This, of course, led the Charlotte Bobcats to see what else was out there, leading them to decide to call-up some white dude from One Tree Hill (as discovered by Eric Freeman over at Yahoo!).

With the new television star (along with Hailey James and "the boy") now on board as the "Charlotte Bobcats new point guard", Collins' services were no longer needed by Larry Brown - thus leading to the D-League assignment.

I'm not sure if this is exactly what happened, but it does seem to all fit together, doesn't it?
